The Ultimate Spring Handbag Shopping List—From $34 to $4K

I'm not sure what it is, but something about the warmer weather just makes me want to spend money on handbags. Throughout the winter I'm used to schlepping around totes and go-to black shoulder bag, but in the spring I tend to bring out my A-game in the purse department with beaded options, fun colors, and different textures like raffia or pleated leather. I've kept my cool and have only let myself purchase one as of now (I'll let you know below which bag is on its way to me), but that doesn't mean I can't share the fun and give you the dose you need of spring-ready handbags. Even if these bags are trend-forward, you'll still be enjoying them for a long time, I promise.

The selection below comes in all price ranges, so whether you're looking to splurge on Gucci or want a quick affordable option, there's a bag you'll love. We've even added those in the middle ground like Staud and Coach, so you can expect the current best of the best in all categories. Keep scrolling to upgrade your accessory game this season—or you can just admire them, I wouldn't blame you.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
