Arm Candy: Spring’s Best Bags

Each spring, we roll out a new wardrobe of colorful florals and cute dresses. But what about accessories? Sure, it’s practical for any collegiette to carry the same tote year-round, but this spring, upgrade your arm candy, too — here’s a roundup of some of the most campus-approved bags this season!

Aztec Print Tote

Bright patterns and neon accents are big this season, so incorporate both into a spring-approved tote bag that’s the perfect size for all your school essentials. The canvas is super durable and the leather straps are sturdy enough for even those collegiettes who have to carry armfuls of textbooks around campus. Plus, the colors are compatible with all of spring’s hues, so you can rock the tote with all of your favorite spring dresses, blouses and shoes!

Buckle Tote

Tangerine is in this season — but rather than purchase your everyday essentials in the fun orange shade, look for colors that will complement it. This deep, bright pink is the answer! It’s perfect as a statement piece when you’re in the mood for a more neutral outfit, but is also a standout outfit’s best friend when you’re laying on the pops of color.

Colorblock Messenger Bag

Colorblocking is one of this season’s biggest trends, so be on top of your game with this satchel-like messenger bag — not to mention, it features spring’s most popular color! There isn’t enough orange to overwhelm your look when you’re wearing the it-color, and the neutrals balance the bright hue out enough so that you can carry this bag with any outfit, even if you’re wearing black.
