I’ve always considered myself a shoes girl – give me all the trends, patterns, and colors and I will keep wanting more shoes. Recently though, I’ve been all about trying out statement handbag trends. One of my favorite parts of my Rent The Runway subscription (which I wrote about here!) is being able to switch out handbags every few weeks. Since handbags are normally more ‘investment’ purchases it’s amazing to be able to test them out before having to take the plunge or even just getting to rent ridiculously fun bags (like this one) that I might never buy to keep forever.
SCARVES TIED ON HANDBAGS
I’ve been loving silk scarves tied on everything this spring, but I especially love the ability to accessorize a somewhat basic outfit with a fun pop of color by tying a silk scarf on the handles. The easiest way to tie your scarf on is just with a simple knot or bow, but I also love scarves wrapped around thicker handles, such as here. Major bonus is a low cost scarf can make an old bag feel entirely new again!
This trend is truly everywhere this spring and yet I’m still loving it! I’ve already brought home one so far this spring and as it gets warmer I feel like I’m going to have to get my hands on at least one more! Straw bags also scream warm weather, but the hard basket shapes just make me want to go plan a picnic.
Hands down my favorite current trend in handbags is the multitude of adorable circle bags, especially this Clare V bag. I’ve actually rented it from Rent The Runway in two different colors and may have to purchase one of my own soon – just have to decide which color 🙂 But seriously, a circle shaped bag adds the perfect feminine touch to every look!
