Editors' Picks: Spring Handbags

Padlock Python Shoulder Bag


"Cute, compact shoulder bags are all I want to look at for spring—something about the season ahead is making me excited to ditch my go-to black bags and opt for something more vibrant. I love everything about this Gucci—its gold hardware, padlock closure, boxy shape and color-blocked python exterior. Does anyone wanna lend me four grand?"

"I wouldn't usually go for a macramé bag with a chain strap, leather trim, long tassels and a logo, but there's something so cool about this one. It's such a statement piece that no matter how low-key my outfit is, this bag would instantly make me look pulled together."

"I love how this bag feels like an update on a classic Chanel—the front pocket and boxy shape feel modern while the quilted detailing and chic, off-white shade make it timeless. I would wear this all the time during the warmer months and then sport it with a winter-white ensemble once the temperature drops again."
