Neutral tones and minimalistic style are some of my favorite trends ever. They’re just the easiest looks and colors that you can throw together in a flash. I couldn’t be happier that it’s a big trend this spring. Rather than raging with spring fever and buying every new bag I see, I’m trying to hold myself to the idea that having a few high-quality pieces that weave into many different outfits is key to everlasting style! If you’re wondering what those bags are, I’ll be sharing some of my spring handbag must-haves that will take you from work to play.
A convertible bag is the easiest way to go for spring. I’ve been loving Cuyana’s new Half-Moon collection, especially the Shoulder Bag. Cuyana is a brand made for the modern woman so all their pieces are structured to fit the lifestyle of a working girl. Their beautiful neutral tones and quality leather gives you that designer feel without the steep price.
The Half-Moon Shoulder Bag is such a playful piece that goes from day to night. It comes in four versatile colors with an adjustable strap so you can wear it crossbody style for brunch or daily errands. But you can shorten the strap and turn it into a shoulder bag for a sophisticated look. The size is just right, holding your mainstays like a notebook, large wallet, keys, lipstick, and a phone.
If you don’t love larger bags, then it also comes in a mini style. It looks identical to the bag you see here but it’s just smaller, holding the absolute essentials for the weekends and evenings. Think a small wallet or card holder, phone, and keys. The Half-Moon Pouch is great for stashing away those small necessities like headphones and loose change.
The whole Half-Moon collection is amazing. These bags are absolutely functional and feminine in aesthetic. When you combine this with the quality of the materials used and fine craftsmanship, you get a handbag that can be carried daily even while traveling.
Oversized totes are great for spring if you’re a career woman. I love the look and the convenience of being able to carry everything I need for the day all in one place! What’s awesome about Cuyana’s is that it zips on top! That may seem like an insignificant detail, but I can’t even begin to describe how satisfying it feels to know that my belongings won’t come tumbling out.
Bucket bags are also very in style this spring. Cuyana’s simple, elegant style of course translates wonderfully to these bags as well. They are so stylish and fun if your style is on the simpler side. The unique shape adds a level of dimensionality to your outfit.
Clutches will always be a necessity for when you are going out and only need to bring along the essential items. Chains were huge on the runway this year and Cuyana’s chain clutch is the ideal neutral day-to-night bag. I love the gold chain for adding a bit of a shine to my outfit. It’s also such an easy piece for coordinating with jewelry, belts, and other accessories.
Special thanks to Cuyana for partnering with me on this post.
