It’s never too early to shop for next season.
New styles are already popping up at retailers and it’s getting us in the mood for spring. One accessory we can’t wait to update? Bags.
Spring is promising fun iterations of carryalls that experiment with bright colors and shapes that’ll make your outfit, not be something of an afterthought. Classics such as the bucket bag are modernized with a more defined silhouette that’s anything but basic. Nostalgia continues to be a notable theme as ’90s favorites make a return by way of beads and baguettes. All in all, we’re excited to up our accoutrement game.
Get ahead by scoring yourself a bag you’ll soon be seeing everywhere and shop our editor-approved options ahead.
