Save, Spend, Splurge: Spring Handbag Roundup

Handbags are my love language. What can I say… it’s the one wardrobe item that always fits no matter how much weight you gain or lose, and it’s something you can use every day.

I’ve had a lot of questions about what handbag styles and colors are trending this spring, so I decided to do a roundup!

A woman’s choice of handbag says a lot about her so it’s definitely something to put some thought into, especially if you’re trying to level up your style game.

Today’s post will focus mostly on styles and colors that are trending this spring. I’m loving all the light neutrals like white, blush, beige, and taupe. The other thing that is big right now in handbags is bright colors like yellow and poppy red, but for some reason I gravitate to the more subtle tones. Straw and rattan bags are also a big trend this season.

Style-wise, oversized, slouchy bags are on their way out, and more structured bags are coming into vogue. I’m also seeing a lot of convertible bags that you can wear several ways, which is nice. I particularly like the styles with a top handle and optional crossbody strap. Mini bags are also trending, but I prefer a bag that can at least hold my wallet and a few daily essentials.

Save, Spend, Splurge: Spring Handbag Roundup

Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite bags right now. We all have different ideas of what a splurge or save item is, so I’m using a wide scale here and including some very high end bags as well as a group of bags under $100. Hopefully there’s a little something for everyone!

As always, I recommend trying to buy on sale or at least when a store is running an incentive like cash back or gift cards based on purchase amount. Right now Bloomingdale’s is currently running their Friends & Family Sale, and a lot of the big names are included in either the 25% off or the Double Points offer, so it’s a good time to make some of those bigger purchases you’ve been holding out on.

Other stores running big incentives right now are Macy’s (lowest prices of the season on Specials), Lord + Taylor (Friends & Family: an extra 30% off with code FRIENDS), JCPenney (Easter Sale: get 25% off $100 or more, or 20% off under $100), Saks (Friends & Family: 25% off select styles), and Rebecca Minkoff (Spend More, Save More: 25% off orders of $150+ with SPRING25 and 30% off orders of $300+ with code SPRING30).

Also, if you haven’t updated your handbag in a while and don’t know where to begin, you may enjoy reading Fight The Frump: Update Your Handbag.


For handbags under $100, I’m a huge fan of Sole Society because they make a nice looking bag that is on trend and usually looks more expensive than it is. That said, I tried to include some other brands as well.

SPEND: $100-$500

Tory Burch, Rebecca Minkoff, and Kate Spade are my favorite handbag brands in this price range, but there are a lot of other good ones out there. I included more in this category than in the other two because I figured this is probably the range most of us are interested in.

SPLURGE: $500+

If you’re into the luxury designers such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Burberry, here are some of my favorite styles. These are all on trend but also classic styles that will last many years.
