It may not look or feel like spring outside, but the calendar says it is, so it’d be great if winter could collect its things and leave. It’s about time we parted ways, and as we look ahead to this season, spring’s leading accessories go beyond your ubiquitous florals and sugary pastels and, in many ways, enter unchartered territory.
Spring 2016 may be the last big wave of mini bags, as the handbag pendulum has started to swing toward big bags in the upcoming months. The details on these smaller handbags, however, don’t go unnoticed. Fendi‘s newest handbag, the DotCom, is adorned with 3D florals; Loewe‘s increasingly popular Puzzle Bag feels crisp and bright; and Chloé‘s colorful fringe will instantly attract boho-chic girls far and wide. And that’s just the bags.
The footwear this spring is equally as exciting. Handbag cult favorite Mansur Gavriel debuted its first-ever line of footwear, and it’s as minimal as the brand’s bags. Meanwhile, both Stuart Weitzman and Christian Louboutin reinvented the tired floral on their sleek heels. And, of course, we can’t think about spring without giving light to another masterful creation from Aquazzura.
The season has just begun, and we already have lots of accessories to look forward to. Check out all of our favorite bag and shoe pairings below and tell us your favorites!
