Some of the Newest Looks on the Menu for Spring




 The Silver Metallic Handbag

Silver is one of spring’s favorite ways to shine. It’s a neutral that goes with just about anything you might want to wear. So instead of buying a white bag, go for the glitter of a silver tote with a futuristic vibe for a new update. We found the Perfect Kiss bag at Worth New York, Tanger Outlet 1, Bluffton.

The Arts and Crafts Handbag

Take your pick with one of these handbags embellished with decoupage, appliques, patchwork, grommets, beading or embroidery. Fringe is still one of the most popular details of these bohemian bags. The most popular bag amongst the Hollywood crowd:
Hammitt Handbags exclusively at Copper Penney,
Shelter Cove Towne Centre, HHI.

The Top-Handle Satchel

This is your go-to-work bag. These bigger handbags do double duty as carry-alls for electronics and other essentials. With shoulder straps, they’re even more valuable purses that go to the office as well as make great travel companions. Top grain leather tote by Hobo. Available at Gigi’s, Calhoun St. Old Town Bluffton

The Drawstring Bucket Bag

This is another major entree on the office menu for spring. A more casual handbag than the top-handle satchel, this vintage-inspired bag is worth an investment. It will be your go-to accessory for years to come. The Milly Drawstring bag by Spartina 449 is available at Spartina 449 Flagship Store, Calhoun St., Old Town Bluffton.

The Small Cross-Body Bag

This popular style is probably one of the most versatile purses you can have in your handbag wardrobe. However, this spring, you can really lighten your load with an even smaller version. New shapes like the round canteen or multi-pocket camera bag with chain straps are having a big impact. Give your back a break and stash your phone, keys and lipstick in one small bag. The long straps free up your hands, too. This leather crossbody is  by Embrazio. Exclusively available at The Bleu Companies, William Hilton Pkwy., HHI.

The Wrislet-Clutch

Sometimes all you need is just a little something to carry a few essentials in or to tuck into a larger handbag. Enter the wristlet clutch/pouch. These small wallet-size purses that hang from your wrist still leave your hands free, but they can also add a dose of flair. Built in identity theft protection in this one. Available at Season’s, Shelter Cove Harbour, HHI.

The Graphic Print Handbag

If you really want to dive into a fresh trend, then this one’s for you. In fact, this may be the only new accessory you will need to buy. Fine Italian leather by Etro Milano available at Porcupine, Village at Wexford, HHI.



The Colorful Handbag

There’s something for everyone this spring when it comes to color. Trade in your boring black bags with a vivid bright hue or a mouthwatering candy-colored pastel. You may want to try both. Colorblocks by Vera Bradley. Available at Fresh Produce, Coligny
Plaza, HHI.
