Spring 2011 It Bags

Colourblocking

This popular spring fashion trend is not only apparent on this season’s tops and dresses, but also on the latest handbags as bag styles gradually change from slippery patent leather to laid-back cool and chic.

Emulate one of spring’s top trends with Anthropologie’s Colour Field Bag, $278. Available at Anthropologie.

Patterns

Solid brights are quickly becoming a thing of the past with funky, wild patterns taking over summer- and spring handbag collections. With everything from 1970’s-inspired psychedelics in keeping with the fashion inspiration from that decade, to bold sailor-style stripes and vivid florals, it seems like anything is possible when it comes to design and colour this spring.

Go nautical with Lucky Brand’s Paisley Blue Beach Tote, $79. Available at Lucky Brand.

Pale Hues

On the contrary, for those of you who prefer understated elegance and would rather stick to neutrals such as cream or taupe shades, you’re in luck as well! Crazy brights aren’t the only style in fashion this season, with pale and pretty lilac, beige, off-white, and pastel tones bound to appear on the shoulders of fashionable ladies everywhere very soon.

Side Straps

The cross-body bag is expected and predicted to be popular again for spring, due to its functional and practical yet simply chic nature. Perfect for keeping your hands free while you grab coffee or do errands, the side-strapped bag is the ideal weekend accessory, especially at a point in the year when the last thing many of us want to do is hang onto a heavy leather satchel with a sweaty grip.
