Spring Styles: 5 Must Have Handbags

P o s t . b y    l    M i m i   

Handbags by far are my favorite accessories by far. They're versatile and can add personality to any outfit without looking over-done. Below are 5 different types of styles I find indispensable this spring.

1} Color : Bright Pastels

Pastels, in my mind, is always in. For this spring, bright pastels are a must have. It adds a pop of color to any  boring outfit.

2} Second Look : Statement

I absolutely adore anything that catches my eye for a second time. If it makes me turn my head, it must be something unique. Whether it be the color, shape, print, or style, a statement handbag is a necessity.

3} Travel Friendly : Tote

Spring is one of the busiest seasons with spring break,  music festivals, and vacations coming around the corner, making large handbags a necessity  This season, I find the "shopper tote" is the go-to handbag for days we need the extra space for all our belongings.

4} Longer Days : Cross-Body

This is by far my favorite type of handbag - the cross-body. Small or large, it is the easiest to carry since it could be worn off the shoulder or across our body. I love using cross-bodies for day and dinner dates.

5} Less is More: Clutch 

Clutches are essential for those night adventures and romantic dates. Lately, clutches with cellphone slots have been more and more popular and , I think, is pure genius! I hate to have to worry about my belongings when I'm out having a great night, so the less the better!

  1. what do you think of the ubiquitous longchamp tote as a "must have" tote? worth buying one?

  2. Are you talking about the 'le pliage' tote? If so, I love its practical and every-day like timeless style. By 'worth', I personally think everyone has their own definition. Mine: if you love something enough, its worth it.
