Thierry Colson Dress, Hunting Season Clutch (old, similar here), Stubbs & Wootton Loafers
As the seasons change from winter to spring, one of the first things I switch in my wardrobe is my collection of go-to bags. Even if I still need a sweater when I step outside, grabbing a purse or tote in a fresh pastel hue or natural material makes long, sunny spring days feel well within reach. Between some beautiful weather in Charleston lately plus our recent trip to California, I already have spring bags at the forefront of my mind. Here are six in particular that I have my eye on to freshen up my wardrobe for the coming season.
I’ve been reaching for a darker version of this Hunting Season bag often lately (last seen here). For spring, this lighter striped version offers a fresh take on the classic shape, putting it at the top of my wish list.
As you’ll soon see when our Gal Meets Glam Collection resort styles launch, I’m looking forward to wearing all different shades of green in the season ahead. Army-green leather puts a spring-ready spin on one of my favorite leather box bags.
Pamela Munson makes some of my go-to tote bags, but this season, I’m loving this woven shoulder bag just as much as their larger pieces. The white resin chain strap puts an unexpectedly modern spin on the raffia style.
There aren’t many bags that can be carried from the office to the pool, but this embellished tote is one of them. Its rectangle structure, leather handle, and pearl details instantly elevate the otherwise laid-back style.
When I’m asked about classic bags most worth investing in, I always mention this Valextra top-handle bag. Its sophisticated shape will never go out of style and every color option feels elegant and timeless. I have it in cream (last seen here), but love this rosy pink as well.
I can always find an excuse to add another basket bag to my collection. In this case, it’s the braided leather straps and flap-fastening that add extra texture and dimension to this neutral style.
