From New York and Paris to London and Copenhagen, the women of fashion month did not disappoint in the style department. In this writer’s opinion, however, the outfits were good, but the bags were even better. A handbag can be the only street style bait you need, so long as you’re toting the right style. And what might that be, you ask? There are so many ways to welcome spring with open arms (literally): a candy colored croc, a teardrop-shaped crossbody, or many a modern twist on the lady bag. Move those wintery black and brown leather totes aside and opt for one (or all five) of the spring’s most statement-making trends, below. The coolest women around the world are already sporting the best of the season—why not you?
In lieu of the classic round basket or woven carryall, the teardrop shape has resurfaced in fresh colors and textures. From Hayward and Manu Atelier’s of the moment animal prints to Mansur Gavriel’s practical color palette of leathers, these bags looked especially chic in Paris, but can be worn anywhere and everywhere.
