Accessories Report: Spring’s Arm Candy

Hopeless romantics get set, Spring 2012 is your time to shine! From frothy pastels and delicate florals to the seductive glamour of the jazz era- spring ushers in a fresh crop of designer handbags that you justc an’t be seen without. We’re breaking down the hottest handbag trends that will carry YOU through Spring/Summer 2012. Pick one, pick all but most of all enjoy being a girl this season.

Pastels

Head to toe pastel is the look du jour this season from Louis Vuitton to Philip Lim. So it’s no surprise that candy colored fashion confections are everywhere this spring. A pastel handbag pairs well with other pastel shades and of course, head-to-toe white. Louis Vuitton offers their quilted monogram shoulder bags in an array of colors found in a box of Ladurée macaroons for spring. Prada and Marc Jacobs updated their classic bags in a ladylike blush hue that will still be chic well after the pastel craze is over.

Animal Print

Get in touch with your wild side and rock a fabulous animal printed handbag this season. Be it cheetah, zebra or giraffe a Serengeti inspired handbag is definitely a must have for the lipstick jungle also known as Delhi. Pair your feisty bag with everything from jeans to a sheath for fun and flirty look that is undeniably sexy. Our favorites include Mulberry’s Harriet bag which is structured and just the right size for a day bag. Jimmy Choo’s Gwen bag is the perfect date night bag while Kate Spade’s black and white take on cheetah print is utterly posh.

Art Deco

Jazzing up your spring wardrobe will be a breeze with SS12’s Great Gatsby inspired handbags. Entice onlookers by dressing up your little black dress with handbags featuring glints of gold and art deco accents. We love the glam-o-rama of Gucci’s Spring 2012 handbag line straight out of the roaring twenties. McQueen’s lace embellished clutch topped with the brand’s iconic skull and Judith Leiber’s dazzling deco evening minaudieres will keep your evening ensemble on point.

Floral

One of the pleasures of Summer is wearing white however this can get boring and the best way to break up a monochromatic look is with a beautiful floral printed handbag which just screams spring. The key here is to look for sophisticated floral prints that are large in scale rather than a tiny repeating floral pattern. We love this floral print handbag by TOUS, which is sophisticated but still fun and flirty. Miu Miu is also joining in on the floral trend with a whimsical touch as always by creating floral patterns with glamourous Swarovski crystals.

Pretty In Pink

It’s an amazing time to be a girl so embrace it and top your summer outfits off with a tickled pink handbag. Whether you like to turn heads with bright fuchsia or more on the demure side and opt for a rose shade- you really can’t go wrong with the “it” color of the season. Our picks include Michael Kors’ popular Hamilton tote revamped for summer in pink with gold hardware. Kate Spade collaborated with Australian artist Florence Broadhurst for Spring and the bags are just as vibrant and fun as her paintings- especially this strictured hot pink delight. Last but surely not least, Lanvin’s pink take on the house’s classic chain-link handbag has us saying, ooh la la!
