SPRING !!!!!!!!! We’ve missed you so much, girl. It’s been a long, cold, dark, depressing winter and we’re absolutely ecstatic about saying goodbye to it. It’s the beginning of April and the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, sunglasses are on, people are lunching outdoors, iced coffees and gelatos are in hand and everyone has a smile on their face. It’s the greatest time of the year and we truly couldn't be happier.
With Spring comes a new wardrobe, where we pack away our jumpers and coats to make room for loose blouses, linen trousers and jean jackets. Along with your clothing, it’s also time to bid your darker-toned handbags adieu and welcome colourful accessories with open arms. We get it, buying a black bag is easy, convenient and goes with everything – but there’s something about Spring that evokes an inner confidence to experiment with colour. We know it’s intimidating, but we’re here to help you find the perfect colourful handbag that’s right for you. Check out our favourite ones below.
Is there anything more joyous than the colour yellow? It makes perfect sense that it’s the hottest colour at the moment because wearing yellow-toned anything makes you look like a walking ray of sunshine. The Chanel Boy is basically a bag that every woman should own. No but seriously, you can’t say you have a genuine luxury handbag collection without having at least one Boy in there. The perfect bag for Spring, this baby Boy is a glorious piece that’s lightweight, glamourous but not overtly in-your-face and the perfect bag to compliment any neutral-toned outfit. Wear this bag with that Maxi skirt you’ve been dying to wear with a pair of Chanel espadrilles and you’re basically set.
Though Spring may be the perfect weather, it’s inevitable that Summer approaches shortly afterwards. Let’s be honest, there is nothing worse than being too hot. Ugh, we’re feeling sticky just thinking about 30 degree weather. One simply must wear as minimal clothing as possible to avoid heat stroke, so naturally, a bumbag is your best accessory option given that it’s handsfree. But not just any bumbag, it has to be the bumbag. Yes, the bumbag everyone knows and everyone loves – the Gucci Marmont. Though we see this bag in black about 18 million times a day, we’ve never seen it in turquoise velvet. I mean…she’s stunning. Not your average Marmont, this bright, colourful baby is the only bag you’ll want to wear from April through to August. Whoever said you couldn’t wear black during the summertime one, probably didn’t know how to dress and two, definitely didn’t know how to accessorise. We encourage you to wear black with this bumbag given how much of statement she is. With her eye-catching hue, it’s impossible for this bag to not stand out. Wear the Gucci Marmont bumbag with a loose, black linen two piece and you’ll be good to go.
All pink errythang is the vibe for Spring / Summer 2019 and this Saint Laurent Sunset bag is the perfect accessory for it. Though yellow may have been the It-colour, hot pink will forever be that b*tch. This Sunset is nothing short of stunning, to say the very least. She’s bright and glossy and basically everything you’d ever want in a handbag. A true statement piece that will put a smile on your face every time you look at it, this model is also a timeless YSL classic that will never go out of style. If you’re embracing the concept of truly experimenting with fashion this Spring, then why not opt for an all pink outfit. No, we’re not kidding. Single-toned outfits are perhaps the biggest trend at the moment and we’re here for it. Pink skirts with pink tees, matching pink Hermès Oran sandals, pink nails, pink lipstick, pink LIFE. In all seriousness, all-pink lewks are the plan for this season and this Sunset bag is the perfect finishing touch.
Is there anyone in this world that hates electric blue? Anybody? No? That’s what we thought. Electric blue is just…so romantic, so edgy, so effortlessly cool yet so sophisticated at the same time. We love her and need to protect her at all costs. Plus, when she comes in the form of a Chanel bag we really can’t resist. The Wallet-On-Chain is essentially the smaller version of the Classic Flap bag, therefore making her a timeless bag that every woman needs in her life. A mini statement piece, the electric blue is the perfect accessory to accentuate your outfit without being too overpowering. The definition of “small but mighty,” the WOC may be little but she’s forever the centre of attention. Wear her with a pair of distressed denim shorts and a basic white tee, or dress her up with a silk mini dress, basically anything neutral-toned would really make this little blue munchkin pop.
