The 5 Handbag Trends You Need for Spring

March 25, 2018

Handbags are my favorite way to stay on trend with fashion. They are an easy way to update your look without changing your whole outfit; and can help save money as well! Spring is finally upon us (…well, some of us at least.. sorry to all you east coasters getting snow!) So; now is the perfect time to share with you 5 must try handbag trends for spring. The handbag trends for spring and summer 2018 are really bold, fun and diverse! Read on for details on each of the 5 biggest handbag trends.

I’d love to hear (leave a comment below) which handbag trend is your favorite for spring?!

1. Rattan / Rafia

This trend was popular last summer and we are seeing it again this spring and summer. Handbag designer’s across the board have incorporate rattan and rafia into their handbag collections. From traditional picnic style bags to small clutches and, my personal favorite, rattan circle bags, these fresh designs feel perfect for spring. My absolute favorite rafia handbag has to be the one pictured above – the circle rafia handbag with pom poms. Though, I am also in love with the bag that has already become this season’s “It girl bag” – the Rattan circle bag.  Shop these, and my other favorite rattan and rafia bag options (at all price points!) below.

2. Belt Bags

I have been styling the belt bag trend non-stop recently. From this edgy Gucci inspired belt bag look, to this 60s Palm Springs inspired look, I have been loving how easy it is to style belt bags, and how convenient and practical they actually are! There are so many options for belt bags for spring – so it’s worth checking out some different styles to find one that best suits your needs. Below are my favorite belt bags.

3. Binocular Bags

Full disclosure; I have absolutely no clue what this shape/style of bag is actually called lol. Everyone seems to have a different name for this style bag! I asked my instagram followers what they thought and quite a few people said binocular bag – and I just love that name. These bags really do look like the old school bags you would have binoculars in! What defines this trendy handbag is the hard structured top to access the bag. I am a huge fan of bags that are structured in general (because I have a bad habit of being tough on my bags and totally beating them up!) so this is a handbag trend that particularly appeals to me because I know I can wear these all spring and summer without worrying about damaging them. My favorite binocular bags for spring are:

4. Round / Circle Bags

This is another spring handbag trend that I can’t get enough of! I love how classic and chic these little round bags look with any outfit. They have a vintage yet modern feel. So far I have only added this white quilted circle bag to my closet for spring, but I definitely want to add a few more of these! I especially love the round pastel color bags. Shop all my top picks below:

5. Unique Shaped Bags

This trend is something that has moved from teeny bopper, to runway chic. Last year’s runway shows in Paris, New York and London showcased a ton of fun bags – from shapes such as hexagons and octagons, to bags shaped like animals and foods. This spring these unique shaped bags will be right on trend and a fun way to add a pop of quirkiness to your outfits. It was so hard to narrow down the many options to just a few favorites, but I tried! Below are my personal favorite unique shaped bags:
