Weâ€™reÂ breaking down the hottest handbag trends that will carry YOUÂ through Spring/Summer 2012. Pick one, pick all but most of allÂ enjoy being a girl this season.
Head to toe pastel is the look du jour this season from LouisÂ Vuitton to Philip Lim. So itâ€™s no surprise that candy coloredÂ fashion confections are everywhere this spring. A pastelÂ handbag pairs well with other pastel shades and of course,Â head-to-toe white. Louis Vuitton offers their quilted monogramÂ shoulder bags in an array of colors found in a box of LadurÃ©eÂ macaroons for spring. Prada and Marc Jacobs updated theirÂ classic bags in a ladylike blush hue that will still be chic wellÂ after the pastel craze is over.
Get in touch with your wild side and rock a fabulous animalÂ printed handbag this season. Be it cheetah, zebra or giraffe aÂ Serengeti inspired handbag is definitely a must have for theÂ lipstick jungle also known as Delhi. Pair your feisty bag withÂ everything from jeans to a sheath for fun and flirty look thatÂ is undeniably sexy. Our favorites include Mulberryâ€™s HarrietÂ bag which is structured and just the right size for a day bag.Â Jimmy Chooâ€™s Gwen bag is the perfect date night bag whileÂ Kate Spadeâ€™s black and white take on cheetah print is utterlyÂ posh.
Jazzing up your spring wardrobe will be a breeze with SS12â€™sÂ Great Gatsby inspired handbags. Entice onlookers by dressingÂ up your little black dress with handbags featuring glintsÂ of gold and art deco accents. We love the glam-o-rama ofÂ Gucciâ€™s Spring 2012 handbag line straight out of the roaringÂ twenties. McQueenâ€™s lace embellished clutch topped with theÂ brandâ€™s iconic skull and Judith Leiberâ€™s dazzling deco eveningÂ minaudieres will keep your evening ensemble on point.
One of the pleasures of Summer is wearing white however thisÂ can get boring and the best way to break up a monochromaticÂ look is with a beautiful floral printed handbag which justÂ screams spring. The key here is to look for sophisticated floralÂ prints that are large in scale rather than a tiny repeating floralÂ pattern. We love this floral print handbag by TOUS, which isÂ sophisticated but still fun and flirty. Miu Miu is also joiningÂ in on the floral trend with a whimsical touch as always byÂ creating floral patterns with glamourous Swarovski crystals.
Pretty In Pink
Itâ€™s an amazing time to be a girl so embrace it and top yourÂ summer outfits off with a tickled pink handbag. Whether youÂ like to turn heads with bright fuchsia or more on the demureÂ side and opt for a rose shade- you really canâ€™t go wrong withÂ the â€œitâ€ color of the season. Our picks include Michael Korsâ€™Â popular Hamilton tote revamped for summer in pink withÂ gold hardware. Kate Spade collaborated with Australian artistÂ Florence Broadhurst for Spring and the bags are just as vibrantÂ and fun as her paintings- especially this strictured hot pinkÂ delight. Last but surely not least, Lanvinâ€™s pink take on theÂ houseâ€™s classic chain-link handbag has us saying, ooh la la!
