There are so many different bag styles available this spring and you really can't go wrong with any of them! Of course, I have my favorites: the clutch (it's everywhere, in every size) and the top-handle bag/satchel with a cross-body strap (it's super practical). Personally, I'm crazy about a clutch in a print or bold color for daytime because it's a little unexpected and adds some personality to a casual outfit or work look. I'm also really into this bold, color-blocked bag by Celine; I'd tuck the top strap in and use it as a clutch. As for satchels, Mulberry's updated their classic style by covering it in teddy bear studs-it's so cool. I also can't stop thinking about 3.1 Phillip Lim's lemon yellow bag; the color is more versatile than you'd think! It pairs nicely with conservative hues and pieces (like jeans and a khaki trench), looks chic with gray, or makes a bold statement when worn with a bright floral print. Cambridge Satchel Company also makes a cool, affordable satchel in yellow patent leather worth checking out if you're interested in that shape and hue, but don't want to invest too much!
