With spring on the way, it's time to hit refresh on your accessory game. From classy croissants to timeless buckets and oversized totes, there's arm candy for everyone—and better yet, enough space to fit everything. Scroll to meet the season's It bags.
Structured or slouchy, a crescent-shaped handbag is the perfect companion for spring. The soft, rounded lines of this style pair well with anything from flowy dresses to balloon-sleeve tops to blazers. Elevate your look with a croissant-style bag à la Fendi, take inspiration from Balmain with a whimsical ruched version, or go casual with a tote that fits all your daily essentials.
Perhaps the most practical style of the bunch, the humble—and deceptively roomy—bucket bag is back this season. On runways, Chloé and Michael Kors offered sculptural, top-handled takes on the classic, but there are also plenty of crossbody options if you'd rather go hands-free.(Photo: Courtesy of Chloé)
Punk up your wardrobe with a sleek bag adorned with edgy chains. Chunky or delicate, in shiny metals or colourful hues—anything goes. At Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, supersized links were the stars of the show. Not ready to commit? Some options feature removable straps.(Photo: Courtesy of Alexander McQueen, alexandermcqueen.com)
Sure, padded bags been on the scene for a while, but Bottega Veneta—the brand that started the trend—brought the look back for spring, while Coach's bestselling Tabby bag has taken over TikTok. From clutches to totes, this playful style is available in every shape and size.(Photo: Courtesy of Bottega Veneta)
After a few seasons of micro bags, the pendulum has swung the other way. According to Proenza Schouler, Fendi and Chanel, it's not only acceptable to carry everything you own and a couple of snacks around with you at all times, it's encouraged. For bonus styling points, carry your oversized tote under your arm.(Photo: Courtesy of Proenza Schouler)
