When a girl is out and about, her most important accessory (aside from a great pair of shades) is her handbag. Working as both fashionable accessory and functional necessity is no small task, and this spring’s designs are sure to pique your interest. Pick one up for a fresh, easy update to your spring wardrobe, or invest in a few—it’s always good to be prepared, right?

A new take on the bucket bag
This seasonb the bucket handbag as all about fun and looking at something through a new lens—and this Kate Spade bucket bag (above) is no exception. It’s perfect for more serious occasions, but ones when you still want to interject a new perspective—to get this look, keep an eye out for geometric bucket handbags with eye-catching details.

Bold florals
Even before the weather starts to warm up, we all look forward to the return of floral prints and poppy colors. This spring, mix and match floral patterns and look for rich textures (like this leather Valentino bag) for a modern, sophisticated feel.

Flingable fringe
After being stuck inside all winter, it feels so good to walk out the front door into a beautiful day. Drive the free-spirit vibe home with a fringed purse, like this Hunter shoulder bag. By adding that bit of drama to your wardrobe, you let everyone know you’re ready for some springtime fun—aren’t we all?

The return of the ’70s biker girl
As soon as the roads of clear of ice and snow, the familiar roaring engines of motorcycles can be heard. Inspired by the return of the moto jacket in recent seasons, this Moschino clutch is a great way to rock your zippers and show some biker-girl style—just on a purse instead of a coat.
