I don't know about you, but a new season makes me itch for a new bag. Clearly, the beauty of spring makes designers want to create beautiful bags, which is just fine with me. I've been kind of overwhelmed by the amount of ridiculously pretty designer bags on the market lately, so I decided to narrow it down. (Sorry, but the Dior number pictured above isn't available for purchase online.)
The best designer bags for spring have three things in common: They'll elicit compliments everywhere you take them, they're very Instagrammable, and they're functional (i.e., not too small or awkward to actually hold your stuff). I had lots of fun choosing the gorgeous bags for this story, and I hope you have even more fun choosing one to buy if you happen to be in the market for a designer bag. Don't let the word designer scare you away if your budget isn't designer-size, either. There are pretty options in the mix that won't cost you that proverbial pretty penny.
