The 6 Handbags Every It Girl Will Own This Spring

Now that the warmer weather has finally decided to make an appearance, it’s the perfect time to get a jump on a new wardrobe. And the easiest way to give your look an instant refresh is by adding some spring-approved accessories, starting with your handbag. This season, the fashion world’s ‘it’ girls have ditched the tried and true silhouettes and swapped them for bags that were made to turn some heads. From playful shapes to warm-weather approved materials, here are the six spring handbag styles we can’t get enough of.

Once the warm weather hits, you better believe that straw bags are going to be flooding your Instagram feed. This year, we’re seeing less beach-inspired straw totes and more crossbody bags that are both chic and convenient. This style can be worn dressed up and down, and it comes in a range of colours and price points. 29Secrets Pick: Urban Outfitters Small Circle Straw Round Crossbody Bag$34

The See-Through Bag:
Transparent plastic bags have made a triumphant return and street style stars like Aimee Song just can’t get enough of them. From lucite clutches to clear plastic totes, the more you can see inside the bag, the better. 29Secrets Pick: GiGi New York Virginia Hobo, $150

The Updated Bucket Bag
Year after year, the bucket bag gets a refresh and this season, designers have reinvented the bag with playful handles, bold colour combos and warm weather-approved fabrics like raffia, wicker, and straw. 29Secrets Pick: Staud Moreau two-tone macramé and leather bucket bag, $375

Unconventional Handles
Take your accessories to playful new heights this spring and summer with handbags with unconventional handles. Whether you’re in the market for a small handheld or a carry-all tote, opt for a style with an attention-getting handle and you’ll instantly be able to refresh your look. 29Secrets Pick: Forever 21 O-Ring Crossbody Bag, $22.90

Geometric Shapes
If you’re looking to take your look from zero to 100 real quick, opt for a bag that resembles more of a work of art than your typical everyday bag. From ovals and squares to pentagon and triangles, a geometric-shaped handbag can be styled with literally anything in your closet and will instantly make your look feel fresh. 29Secrets Pick: Mango Round Raffia Bag, $79.99

The Net Bag
Leave it to street style stars to make a bag that you would typically use to carry your groceries. But the typical plain net bag has received a much-needed makeover this season and comes in an array of colours from rainbow brights to solid neutrals. 29Secrets Pick: Zara Bag With Wooden Handles, $49.90
