Clutch bags are an essential part of any outfit. Let your bag reflect the season and let it brighten up your look.
Spring cleaning often gets us itching to clean out our closets and buy some fresh new items. While there’s never really any reason to completely overhaul your wardrobe, there are some easy fixes to help you feel refreshed once winter is finally over. Spring not only means lighter jackets and warmer weather, but it also welcomes color back into the world. If you want to open your wardrobe up to spring, consider buying a new spring handbag to brighten up your look.
There are plenty of handbags out there, since most are appropriate year round. Often though, a simple color or pattern will determine when an item or accessory is most appropriate. While neutrals like black, white and beige are always in season, pale colors like pastels and bright neons are more spring appropriate. While more neons may not be for everyone and are more of a summer thing, pastels are unique to spring so jump on the opportunity to sport a pastel colored bag. This could include pinks, purples, yellows, greens and oranges. The light nature of these colors allows them to act more like a neutral than brighter, bolder colors. While they aren’t as versatile as blacks or whites, the light nature of these colors allows you to pair them with more outfits and accessories while still adding a splash of color.
Aside from playing with color, you can also play around with brighter, lighter patterns. Prints that use nature themes and florals are great for this season and mirror the changes happening outside. Flowers, leaves, trees and other natural elements make for fresh, fun prints that can be used in handbags as well as in other accessories. Canvas bags of any kind exhibit these best, whether they’re featured in hobo bags, totes, satchels, or cross-bodies. Even if you’re wearing an outfit consisting of solid colors, a patterned bag can add a lot of depth and refresh your look.
