When it comes to accessories for spring, designers let their creativity roam free. Almost anything went for the season, from sporty backpacks (they’re here to stay) to ladylike frame bags in exotic skins. The big trend, if there really is one, is that you need to have more fun with your purse. From Marc by Marc Jacobs’ ergonomic shapes to the pyramid clutches at Herve Leger to Diesel’s wristlets, it really is an arm party.
Clutches also reigned supreme this season, with everything from sportier versions (Alexander Wang) to metallic evening options (J.Crew). Or do what Jason Wu did and just don’t use your strap. Check out our picks for the 12 best bag options this season, and plan your outfit around these. Trust us, your accessories are everything.
