Last week’s weather in New York City was pretty terrible. There was nothing but rain, fog and stifling humidity for days on end, and even when the sun did peek out, it only served to seemingly boil the moisture in the air. Suffice it to say, my hair was not happy, and neither was the rest of me. Generally, days like those turn New York into a wide swath of dark neutrals – black umbrellas, grey and tan rain coats, black Hunter boots. I just can’t deal with that kind of monochrome city, and naturally, my favorite cure for the rainy day blahs is a sunshine-y bright bag.

And so, we present you with our picks for the seasons best in cheerful yellow. No matter whether the weather where you are is dreary or pristine, yellow provides a jolt like no other. For people who are slow to embrace the shade because it doesn’t flatter their skin tones, a bag is the perfect way to give it a shot – your bag and your tan don’t need to go together in the same way that your clothes need to bring out your best undertones. Check out our full list after the jump.

I agree, the Coach is my favorite as well, and love the price tag! I have never owned a yellow bag, probably because I shy away from yellow in general. Amanda, you’ve convinced me, and I am going to get the Willis for the summer! Thanks!

Not a fan of the DvF bucket tote. I don’t care for the structure (perhaps the lack thereof) or the color. JMO.

I’ve liked the Victoria Beckham bag ever since I saw it on NAP. It’s a lovely, classic shape is reasonably priced, relative to her other offerings.
