At PurseBlog, we understand that spring’s trend toward bright colorblocking can be intimidating, particularly when you decide to do it in a minimal way a la Jil Sander Spring 2011. In those kinds of ensembles, there’s nothing to hide behind – it’s just you and your colorful pants, out there for the world to see. Depending on your personality, that thought might either be exhilarating or terrifying. If it’s the latter, consider throwing a bag like the Veda Ursala Bucket Bag in black leather or camel suede into the bright, shining mix.
If you need an antidote from bright bags but still want to fit in with the other trends of the season, these bags fit the bill perfectly, and for a very reasonable price. Veda took these bags down to their most basic lines to give them a modern feel that some retro-inspired bucket bags lack, and the neutral colors enhance that choice quite a bit. I’d still love to see them in yellow and coral, but if you’re not going to jump that bandwagon, you don’t need to wait and see if other colors surface. Buy the leather version via ShopBop for $385 or the suede version for the same price.
