Spring is blooming and it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a new handbag. After a harsh winter spent in lockdown, enduring socially distanced walks and being without our friends and family, it’s the least you deserve. Spring brings with it a myriad of bright shades that jump to the front of our closets. While we usually associate spring with pastels, this year’s spring handbag colours are focused on richer hues that make a bold statement where you go. These are the six handbag colours you should consider investing in for spring 2021.
We’re green with envy for this spring shade. Kelly Green has come back with a bang thanks to Bottega Veneta, who are dominating the accessory industry with their bags and shoes. This shade is perfect for spring as it reminds us of new life and the nature that is blooming right outside our front door. Bring the trends together and add the Kelly green colour to your closet with a mini shoulder bag like the Prada Re-Edition 2000.
Spoiler alert: green is the accessory colour of the season, and you want at least one hue of green in your closet for spring.
This bag trend blends two of the top colours of the season – yellow and green – to create an acid inspired shade. This colour reminds us of the highlighter yellow that was everywhere in the mid-2000s. If you’re looking for a statement bag for spring 2021, look no further than an acid yellow style. It’s the perfect way to welcome the new season.
Embrace your inner Elle Woods and pick up a bubblegum pink bag. This shade is everywhere in the fashion industry thanks to the resurgence in the y2k trends. You can experiment with this colour through a handbag before making the plunge and trying it in a head-to-toe outfit. The brighter the bubblegum pink, the better!
Yellow is everywhere this season – from the runway to our favourite influencer Instagram accounts. If you’re not ready to jump in at the deep end with a tonal yellow look, you can start small with handbags. These sunshine shades are perfect for the warmer months and they’ll see you through spring and summer into the first weeks of September. If you’re heading off to somewhere exotic this spring, you’ll want to have this bag shade on your arm.
Do you know what’s a power move? Matching your lipstick to your handbag. If you’re someone who never leaves the house without a coat of crimson lipstick, this is the bag trend for you. Lipstick red is a power colour that you can wear all year long. It’s the perfect choice if you want a spring bag you can wear all year round.
Perhaps you like the idea of a lipstick red bag but want something with a brighter hue. Tangerine orange has been a spring staple for several years now, showing no signs of slowing down. Make a statement with a structured tangerine orange bag this spring.
Which of these bag trends will you be carrying this spring? Are there any other colours you’ll be rocking this season?
Refreshing your wardrobe every season can be expensive. More of us than ever are choosing to build capsule wardrobes and take a vow of minimalism. Unless you’ve got the budget of a Hadid or a Kardashian, it’s unlikely you can buy into every fashion trend. Thankfully, trends are like boomerangs that eventually come back around.
When we think of trends, we often focus on specific garments and aesthetics. Colours play just as important a role in defining trends, and they’re more overarching than any style niche or specific trend. Whether you’re a fan of the Y2k aesthetic or you have a classic Preppy style, these colours are a way you can incorporate the latest trends into your daily wardrobe. We’re rounding up the 5 biggest colour trends for 2021 that you’ll want to add to your wardrobe ASAP.
Lockdown has brought with it some interesting trends. During the first weeks, we were all fairly bored out of our minds. All it took was a few TikTok videos for us all to start tie-dying our clothes as a new hobby. Tie-dye has come back as a trend during the lockdown, specifically with loungewear. As we’re all working from home, comfort has become the defining factor for trends. A two-piece tie-dye tracksuit or loungewear set gives you comfort without compromising on style. We’re going to round up everything you need to know about the tie-dye trend and how you can jump on the bandwagon.
Fashion Week is like the holiday season for fashion followers. It’s our favorite time of the year and a staple in our calendar. While this London Fashion Week was a unique experience thanks to the pandemic, it didn’t rob us of inspiration for our spring wardrobe. Digital presentations replaced the usual runway shows and influencers took to social media to share their outfits instead of photographers catching their street style outside events.
