Posted on: April 1, 2016

If your anything like me, and those who know me I’m a lover of all things fashion! With that being said, that goes for handbags too. I’m a huge handbag LOVER!! Some may call me handbag obsessed, but I love changing up my style, and I feel that they are great statement pieces all on their own. Plus, what I keep on telling my husband, is that they are great investment pieces for our future daughter. Even though I know fashion and trends are always changing, he doesn’t need to know that.. (But I’m sure he does lol). Anyways, with my love for handbags, I thought it would be fitting that my for Fashion Fridays post, I’d share with you the latest trends in handbag fashion.

Spring is here and the weather in the city has been unpredictable, if I must say. But I can’t complain, because the sun is out and warm weather is on it’s way….. It’s time to change things up, spice up our style and fashion, and think bold, with color and statements galore. Well, at least when it comes to fashion, specifically handbags. The Handbag game is so strong right now it’s time to get everyone on point and on trend. After Spring Fashion week 2016, if the fashion runway taught us anything It would be, that we shouldn’t have to choose between what would be practical and what’s aesthetically beautiful when it comes to our everyday bag.

I don’t know about you, but the latest trends and styles in handbags are just to DIE FOR…. Now if you haven’t gotten your hands on a bucket style bag, this will be one you’d want in your collection because it’s a style that is here to stay. Another fashion alert in the handbag department would be bags with statement handles, bold and fierce colors. This type of handbag will soon replace your run of the mill boring tote bag.  And whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor day didn’t know anything about fashion because just like clothing, all white everything is all the rave and it  just screams supreme elegance, classy and sophistication.

Below are examples of  affordable and high end brands/options to keep you in the loop and on trend for this season. And if you’re anything like me,  you’ll definitely want to go out and purchase one if you haven’t already. It’s so hard to choose from all the different styles and variety out there. But here are some options that may suit you and ones that you just might go out and buy.
