Bright-hued handbags are all the rage this spring and it makes me want to toss my basic black bags aside and go for a scene stealing color. Whatever your favorite hue is, you are bound to find (at least) one bag that suits your style below in the handbag color wheel I have compiled! While I have been dreaming about the spring bags from Dior(#18)& Prada (#12, &#15), the Botkier mini duffle in pink (see #11) was surely made with me in mind! Pink has always been a favorite color of mine, (what can I say, I’m a girly-girl through & through), but I can honestly say that the below selection makes me wish I could carry a different colored hand bag every day of the week (some days of course I could double up on colors as I could carry a different colored clutch for going out!) These bags may embrace untraditional color schemes, but they promise to be amazingly versatile and will have you rethinking the term neutral by season’s end!
