Stocking your wardrobe with new spring clothes is always a fun way to spend an afternoon, but I would argue that the accessories you purchase can have the biggest  overall effect on your seasonal style.

Prep your closet accordingly with an exciting mix of spring handbags worth loosening up the purse strings.

1. Mini Bags

Most of us carry purses with approximately 100 essentials waiting inside, which is why we need the biggest handbags (and one in every shade, thankyouverymuch).

Plus, you know what they say: “A heavy purse makes a light heart.” But sometimes, smaller is better.

Mini bags are the perfect size for carrying a tube of lipstick, your cell phone, ID, and cash. Because how many times have you actually needed those other 96 items?

2. Printed Bags

Spring fashion is all about fresh patterns, so it only stands to reason that spring handbags should follow suit.

Two-tone and colorblocked purses complement mixed prints like a dream, but they also give your neutral basics a boost.

3. Classic Neutrals

Speaking of neutrals, every spring wardrobe demands a go-anywhere neutral bag.

Choose a hue that works with your closet’s color palette. Classic black, warm ivory, and chic navy are all great options that suit most people’s needs.

Also, pay attention to the size of your bag as well as its hardware — you’ll want a style that coordinates with your metallic tone of choice, whether that’s gold, rose gold, or silver.

4. Backpacks

You don’t have to re-enroll in high school a la Josie Geller to rock this popular trend.

Backpacks have officially graduated into the accessory of choice for women on the go, and they’re surprisingly chic (albeit sporty).

Go for a style that’s petite, well made, and designed with a handle on its top for versatile¬†use.

5. Straw Purses

Spring hasn’t officially sprung until you see straw handbags make their seasonal debut. This woven style is big on natural texture, and it goes with anything and everything in your closet.

Choose a turn-lock design or a straw satchel for a more polished presentation, or go casual with a straw tote.

6. Mellow Yellows

It’s easy to see that yellow is the color of the season, and why not? It¬†may seem challenging to wear, but this unique hue comes in a wide range of warm and cool tones to accommodate your personal style just fine.

Warm, mustard-colored shades add a rich touch to pastels and neutrals, while softer notes of daffodil and sunny pops of citrine lend a springtime effect to darker pieces.

7. Edgy Accents

Spring handbags are all about flowers and sunshine, so why not shake things up with some edgy accessories? Update your lightest and brightest spring uniform with a bag that boasts heavy metals, abstract motifs, or whimsical embellishments.

This is an easy way to let your personality shine through on a daily basis, and it keeps your springtime wardrobe from looking too one note.

Which of these spring handbags are you most excited to wear in the months ahead?
