There is something so uplifting about setting your eyes on a new release of seasonal handbags, particularly when they are for my favorite season, spring! Maybe it’s that they are a sign the winter days are coming to an end, or maybe it’s just something fresh to look at for a change. All I know is when I have been browsing through stores, or filtering through my designer emails, the realness of raffia and yumminess of yellow in the new spring handbags for 2019 puts a big smile on my so-over-winter-totes face.
Let’s start with Raffia. Raffia is a texture in bags that comes and goes based on the season. It is perfect for spring fashion, as it can make a vacation style more interesting, but also warm up a mild weather outfit you wish had fewer layers. Where we used to see raffia in basic beige, I love that designers have brought new colors to us. Black, red and, my personal favorite, mixed tones of white! Choose a raffia bag that is versatile with a few of your spring outfits and enjoy this casual, but cool bag trend.
Yellow is a color that will never go unappreciated, especially in a handbag. The color can often feel too intense for clothing, so it’s perfect as an accessory color. And seriously, have you ever met a person who didn’t say yellow is the happiest color in the rainbow? Exactly. So, why stay black or neutral with your crossbody or clutch when you can choose a bright, beautiful yellow bag that promises to be a spring outfit win and a total conversation starter? I see this trend as a way to pop color in an all-black evening outfit or elevate a daytime look from good to great. Quick spring look: find a bold printed spring dress with some bursts of bright yellow and make a statement with a coordinating handbag. Done!
Note: All of these handbags do come in beautiful shades of yellow. The retailers have chosen the below images as thumbnails.
Brown used to have the reputation of being drab and dull, but not this spring season. Because of its ability to transition, brown handbags will be seen everywhere from cocktail hour in the city to music time at the festivals. Not to mention some of our favorite high-end designers have made their logo the attractive part of the bag – think Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Gucci – and guess what, they’re all brown! Choose wisely with the texture of this spring handbag trend and be creative with your outfit choice. The color is safe, so have fun with the outfit.
This is a great transitional outfit. I chose a top and skirt by Proenza Schouler. The top being long sleeve and a thicker fabric means a slight night chill won’t bother me one bit. The skirt is a flowy, gauzy material that moves with ease and covers my winter-white legs. The sandal flirts with the warmer weather to come, and the black bag by Staud reminds us that winter shades are not gone just yet. Are all you Northeasterners rolling your eyes at me? Don’t forget; I grew up in Maine. I get it, girl. You can easily swap out the sandals for a pair of black booties and, once the temperatures rise, make them open toed. Grab your favorite black blazer for the extra warmth you need, or even a thick cardigan.
Transitional pieces are key this time of year. I suggest investing in two or three things that can carry you through this challenging fashion time. Your style doesn’t need to suffer because of unpredictable weather conditions. You should always feel like you can conquer any seasonal change! …
