Bamboo Bags

Bamboo bags have been super popular over the past few years… and they are still going strong! I recently bought this bag (#1) from Vince Camuto and LOVE it! It’s a great size, has a cute tassel detail, is perfect for spring, and will go with everything! Read more about it in this post. The Cult Gaia bags (#2) are also very popular and come in tons of shapes, colors, and sizes.

Beach Totes

Look like a cool mom on the beach with a unique and fun tote! Just because you have to carry all of your kiddo’s stuff doesn’t mean it has to be in a boring bag. I really like #3 and #4! Most of the beach totes I own are sold out but I linked similar options below.

Circle Bags

Circle bags are another fun and modern handbag option.  #5 has really pretty detailing and #6 is a great classic option!

I love the idea of having a straw or raffia clutch for a date night, GNO, or even for a wedding. #7 has a super stylish clasp that makes it look a little dressier. #8 would be perfect with a gorgeous floral maxi dress!

Rope Bags

You’ve probably seen these bags on Instagram. They’re becoming just as popular as bamboo bags. I recently bought #9 from Bloomingdale’s and love it! You can see how I styled it in this post. #10 is really cool and chic. It’s a little pricey but I found a dupe!

Crossbody Bags

Last but not least, I wanted to talk about chic crossbody bags for spring. The ones in the collage above are dressier options. I’m in love with #11. I love the mix of white leather and neutral woven straw! #12 is similar but a little dressier because of the metal top handle. You could wear these with a pretty summer dress and wedges, or even denim shorts and a blouse! I linked casual crossbody bags below too!

  1. I just love the handbags this season. They’re so much fun. Those are some great picks.

  2. I love these options! I just got the circle ratan one at Nordstrom for my trip to Mexico. I love the look of all these bags. They are casual and really stylish. You made me want #9! Dang it. LOL

  3. Can’t do the “wooden” bags, even though I know they’re popular. when I was little we used to make them out of POPSICLE sticks. can’t get that out of my mind.

    1. I don’t think you need to, but I DO have to tell you that every outfit I put that basket bag with looks so much more interesting. It really has impact!
