It was the fashion trend seen 'round the world during this past fashion week brigade. The bright, boxy bag made repeat appearances on the arms of fashionistas all over. Fashion bloggers in the know such as Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, Atlantic-Pacific’s Blair, and Carolina of Fashion Squad, have illustrated the many ways you can style this fun springtime accessory.
We love this trend for its versatility, and the fact that it maintains a balance of classic chic undertones and fashion-forward appeal. These bags transition effortlessly from a casual brunch, to a formal cocktail occasion. The bright pop of color adds playfulness to even the most muted of ensembles without sacrificing polish or structure.
Bright, boxy bags are available in a wide range of price points, from the heirloom-esque pieces offered at Céline, to the fun shades currently at H&M. To make the search for your perfect boxy bag easier, we’ve put together a list of our favorites from high to low price points. Unifying all of these picks are three important qualities: a fun springtime color (if your eyes hurt after looking at it for awhile, you’re on the right track), a stiff, boxy structure, and a smooth fabric (leather, satin, or faux leather). Pick the one that best suits your style and go into spring with a fab new accessory!
