Whether you believe it or not, spring is ever so slowly making its return. And while the weather report may not be giving you much proof of that fact quite yet, there is still one strong indication that warmer weather is on the rebound. Every fashion girl's favorite stores are getting into the swing of spring, and all of their fresh arrivals are full of new spring purses perfect for shopping now — and wearing all season long.
If it has been a couple of seasons (or longer) since you refreshed your holding of handbags, right now is the time to do so. That's because just about all of the fashionable set's most favored brands are dropping their spring collections, and they're really, really good. Plus, since so many of these labels have garnered cult-followings over the past several seasons, you know the latest launches are bound to go fast. Time to get shopping.
Still loving the croc-embossed trend that took to the streets last season? So are your favorite designers. STAUD's Spring 2019 collection just dropped, and included amongst the offerings are several leather bags with croc-embossed treatments — but totally unlike what you're seeing on the streets right now. The brand's new croc-style Hutton bag, $375, has an accordion-like silhouette that's an unexpected take on super-structured purses, and its popular PVC bag got a rounded update for spring, which is especially chic in the cream croc-embossed iteration, $225.
Eager to take a totally new trend for a spin this spring? Acrylic would seem to be the material du jour according to many it-girl bag brands, like Cult Gaia. The latest drop from the uber-popular line features many of its staple styles, like the Luna Crossbody Bag, now rendered in colored acrylic. The pearly pale blue version, $328, is perfect for spring's pastel color trend.
And naturally, because simple, high-quality leather bags are always in style, spring's latest arrivals include several well-worth investing in. Mansur Gavriel's instant-classic bucket bag got a cool pleated leather update this season, especially chic in this vegetable tanned camel color for $595. Or opt for Cuyana's latest launch, the Half-Moon shoulder bag, $295, which comes in four different leather shades and can transition from a cross-body to a sleek shoulder bag style.
The good news is, whatever your style aesthetic, spring's incoming bags span it all. From sleek and simple to whimsical and bold, you're sure to find something to up your accessory game for the season ahead. Below, shop some of the best new spring handbag arrivals — so far.
