5 Spring Bag Styles I’m Obsessing Over

There are so many spring handbag trends this year that I decided to make this week’s Spring Trend Guide all about bags. If you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you can see a handbag haul showing all the styles up-close. But I also wanted to bring you some outfit inspo on how to wear the handbag trends and a shopping guide on where to buy them!

1. Circle Bags

Circle bags are my fave for spring (I’ve been wearing mine non stop!). Whether you hold the handbag by it’s handle or wear it as a cross-body it gives any outfit a bit of a retro feel. The styling possibilities are endless: from jeans like me to dresses like ElizabethΒ and pants like Andee.

2. Belt Bags

Yes, the fanny pack is back! But now it has a new name: the belt bag. With this new name comes a new sophistication. The bags are still hands-free and meant to be worn at your waist or hips. But they come in pretty leather styles and are majorly elevated from the retro style. You can wear them over jackets and jeans or dresses like An and Lacey.

3. Bucket Bags

A bucket bag gives any outfit an extra fashionable touch. Try pairing the trend with jeans in the city like Grace or neutrals like Pam.

4. Straw Bags

There are so many straw bags from totes to beach bags to, yes my trend obsession, circle bags. I love how Krystal added a scarf to hers. They straw also works well as a neutral contrast to prints, like Christina’s florals or my gingham.

5. Pastel Bags

Pastel handbags are a great way to incorporate a pop of Spring into your outfits. You can wear themΒ  other pastels like Jenn, jeans like SherylΒ or a floral print like Blair.

What style bag are you rocking this Spring?

    I really like this article, there are a lot of cute and beautiful bags, which I like so much. Although this is the recommended style last year, but these bags still look very fashionable now, I am going to buy one of them!
    At the same time, I also recommend a handbag I just bought it, it looks very beautiful, I believe readers will like it, just like me!

    I cannot get on the tiny handbag trend – they just give me war flashbacks to being in middle school when the trend was a teeny tiny bag with a strap just big enough that it would hang right in your armpit if you put it over your shoulder.
