Leap into spring with the latest handbag trends. The runways are blossoming with fresh designs: round bags, saddle bags, crossbody and satchels. We’re also seeing a playful resurgence of vintage trends; most notably, Audrey Hepburn ’s bucket bag. Although you’ll be tempted to bedeck your closet with every single style, remember that quality is more important than quantity— unless you find bargains— then you can have it all. Start seeking your spring styles with these top handbags for 2019.
Leather Bucket Bags
Swing back to the 60’s with the leather bucket bag. Chic and classic, this design adds a vintage elegance to your look.
There’s a diversity of styles this spring, spanning across simple or funkier designs. Invest in a version that celebrates your personal aesthetic. For a dressier look, a structured bucket bag is ideal, while for casual streetwear, a slouchy bucket bag works best. Take your cues from Miranda Kerr who spices up her jeans and tee-shirt combo with an adorable grey bucket bag, acing her status as one of the most fashionable celebrity moms.
Get the celebrity standard at regular-people prices with these affordable leather bucket bags: the Fleur Tours and the Gavarnie Yellow version.

Saddle bags and satchels
Invented by Dior in 1999, the saddle bag has become iconic for its unique cowboy-inspired shape. Now in spring 2019, saddle bags are making a fierce comeback. Find affordable designs in real leather with the Arles Sling Bag or the Nancy Purse.
Similarly, satchels feature that handy envelope flap. While not as polished-looking as the saddle bag, the satchel is better suited for functionality. In terms of trending colors, jewels and neutrals should be on your radar.
As showcased on all the major spring runways, red is the flavor of the season. Bold, feisty and sexy, red handbags are the ultimate statement-maker (and natural mood-upper).
Versace is hot on red, as seen with the rouge top-handle bag, while Chanel leads the crimson bandwagon with the iconic red fur bag. Beautiful, yes, but for the 90% of the population’s mere mortals, too à la broke for couture, there’s salvation in more affordable red leather bags. As trending on social media, consider the Lisieux Tote or the Lacq Sling Bag.
