Top 10 spring 2014 handbag trends to try
A Floral-Print Clutch
A floral clutch adds extra springtime cheer to any outfit—whether you're mixing prints like blogger Chriselle Lim (featuring this Givenchy clutch) or adding one single eye-catching accessory to a streamlined monochromatic look.
A Pastel Purse
Easter-egg hues are the new neutral when it comes to accessories this season. Work a pink, baby blue, or minty green one into your outfit, whether it's a roomy satchel, an envelope clutch, or a structured ladylike bag like blogger-model Zanita Morgan's.
A Bucket Bag
If our—and every fashion editor's—obsession with Mansur Gavriel didn't already drive the message home: A bucket bag should be at the top of your shopping list this season. Whether it's a minimalist drawstring creation or Alexander Wang's lipstick-red studded number carried by model Pauline Vander Cruysse, the style will fit all your essentials and update any look.
A Stylish Backpack
Yes, a backpack may sound '90s, but this year's new crop is much cooler. Along with being incredibly functional (hands down, the most comfortable way to tote a laptop), these designer backpacks look effortlessly cool. Even Karl Lagerfeld put graffiti-covered backpacks on his spring runway for Chanel.
