The spring style transition has officially begun, and that means the season’s best bags are about to be everywhere. To get ahead of the curve, we’ve partnered with the luxury experts at Brahmin for their take on which spring styles are about to make the strongest statement. Whether you're searching for a Mother's Day gift or a statement bag of your own, these versatile picks are all about the details — from luxe leather effects and unexpected hues to tortoiseshell top handles.
Croc-effect leather is one of our favorite textures this spring, and this tote’s robin’s egg blue makes the luxe material feel totally fresh. It's sophisticated enough to gift your hard-to-shop-for mom, but cool enough that you'll want to steal it for yourself. Pair the piece with monochromatic neutrals for a subtle pop, or go bold by styling it with a brightly hued day dress.
Our spring calendars are packed — and from destination festivals to sunny afternoons on the water, a chic, just-big-enough bag is crucial. This convertible piece is compact but versatile, with a strap that allows you to wear the piece as a crossbody, shoulder bag, or belt bag. Plus, timeless saddle-brown leather pairs effortlessly with practically everything, making this the pitch-perfect gift for the multitasking women in your life.
If you’re looking for a neutral satchel with a twist, this croc-effect bag is what you’ll be reaching for all season. Subtle textural details, like the circular tortoiseshell handle, keep things thoughtfully on-trend. Whether you're gifting the bag to a friend or keeping it for yourself, it's the perfect complement to warm-weather whites.
There’s no time better than spring to embrace color, and this satchel’s abstract print offers just the right amount of interest. Eye-catching without being overpowering, this bag pairs just as well with your favorite jeans as it does with a breezy midi dress. Gift to the woman in your life who taught you that the secret to great style is all in the details.
