From top left: saddle bag (#1 on my wish list! Under $1000) / red bag (classic bag, one my wish list!) / pale blue shoulder bag (under $300) / red mini tote (under $500 and comes in white!) / navy box bag (hot designer IT bag) / circle tote (three colors in stock) (I pre-ordered one-love!)
Spring has sprung, and there are so many amazing handbags on store shelves for the season! Many of these bags are ideal for both spring, and summer; so they are perfect to buy now. As always, my wish list is bigger than my bank account, so some of these bags will remain a dream, while others, might get squeezed into my budget.
The spring 2016 season is all about several IT bag styles. Here are a few of the season’s hottest handbag trends, and my wish list above, fits into all of them.
Saddle bags: I did a full article on this trend here. They are classic yet nostalgic. I love the 1970s vibe saddle bags bring to the fashion table. They are lightweight, easy to wear everyday, practical, and so cute! My top choice for the season is this one.
Box bags: Structured box bags are so Jackie O. I love this trend, and I am waiting for it to explode. If you are not into carrying a box around, look at Mansur Gavriel’s soon-to-be-iconic circle bag. It has been selling out quickly, so if you are interested, you can pre-order yours online here or here.
Mini bags: This seems to be the trend which never dies. Despite designers not showcasing it in full force on the runways, (runway bags have been bigger the last few seasons), consumers love their mini bags. If you have not purchased one yet, I recommend this one. The price is moderate, and the style is perfection.
Large tote: This is not really a trend, more of a summer classic, and necessity. Everyone needs the perfect summer tote! For summer 2016, look for multi-colored totes, patterned totes, and stay away from solid colors. Totes for summer 2016 are F-U-N! I have my eyes on this one.
Handbag trends for spring 2016 are classic with a twist. Love that! What is your favorite handbag trend for spring 2016?
