Well, as you can tell, I am still in a black handbag mood! Since the two biggest decades of influence this fall 2021 season are the 1990s and the 1970s, my handbag mood is leaning ’90’s. In the 1990s, we wore black handbags. Unless the bag was logo, or Dooney and Burke, our bags were mostly black.

We loved wearing bags with short straps which tucked right underneath our arms, and shiny leather finishes were hotter than hot. While the current pouch trend has nothing to do with the 1990s, it is still relevant for 2021 and beyond; and I love it. Pouches are soft and fun to wear. I love this trend!

So, without further ado, this is my fall 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe! I have two soft pouch clutches; one of which is understated and black, the other pouch clutch has a trendy and chunky chain, with leather in deep, chocolate brown. My stripe bag is convertible, comes with two straps, and can be worn as a belt bag or cross body bag; this is my go-to everyday bag, and I always wear it cross body. It fits everything I need on a daily basis, and is very comfortable. Plus, the stripes and overall design are fabulous. Love!

When I don’t need to carry too much, this mini black bag is perfect, and so very 1990s. It has two straps, which I alternate between depending upon my outfit. The short strap offers vintage vibes while the cross body strap makes it very modern and 2020s.

Lastly, how could I not talk about this Prada hobo? It’s fashioned after Prada’s famous hobos from the late 1990s and offers the same high gloss finish which was popular during the era. It’s lightweight and fun to wear. Plus, it reminds me of the ’90’s! haha

I am lightening up for the summer 2021 season! For my summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe, I am using my basket bag as my carry-all for days when I need to carry a lot of things, as well as for beach days, or when I wear espadrilles. It looks fabulous with espadrilles.

In addition to my beloved basket bag, I am deep into the pouch trend this summer! I started last year with my large black pouch, then I picked up this cute little yellow pouch with a cross body strap for some variety. Then, I broke down and splurged on this dark brown pouch with a chunky chain. All three pouches work with different outfits and serve different style purposes, yet they are all functional and fun to wear. I love a soft pouch!

Of course, no summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe would be complete without the 2021 IT bag! My beloved Prada Cleo is a fabulous everyday hobo bag which is just large enough to fit my wallet, phone, keys, mask, hand sanitizer, and keys. It’s also lightweight and easy to wear over my shoulder. Love! You will see me in this bag a lot over the summer season!

As always, my handbag capsule wardrobe contains classic bags which can be worn throughout the year, regardless of seasons; with the exception of the basket bag which is a spring/summer bag. My basket bag is classic, thankfully, so it will be easy to pull out next spring and summer; and for many spring/summer seasons thereafter! Love investment bags!

My spring 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe is a mix of fun and practical. This spring season, I really want to add some cheery style to my everyday looks. This cute little yellow pouch fits into the pouch clutch trend, and adds a fun pop of color to a casual outfit. Love that!

Natural fibers and texture are also huge this spring season. This small straw tote bag is perfect to fit into that trend and provide a roomy handbag solution for day-to-day activities. I love this little tote!

Classic IT bags, and IT bags from the 1990s are also a huge trend this year. Reach into the back of your closet and pull out your IT bags from ten to twenty-five years ago! They are relevant! My favorite is my Chloe Marcie which is soft, slouchy, and great for daily use. It is hard to photograph with a group, which is why you don’t see it in my group photos.

Since I am still working from home, I don’t really need a tote or large work bag right now. I have stored my totes which will come in handy later this year to use as beach bags, and hopefully travel bags after we all get our vaccines! So for now, I am wearing smaller bags which are great for running errands and daily activities.

Which types of bags are you rocking this spring?
