Fashion Trends That Will Make Your Handbag Pop

This spring brings with it fun fashions that will make anyone look fabulous. If you are unsure about going overboard on a certain fashion, or simply don’t have the money to invest in a new wardrobe, consider using your handbag as a way to be trendy in a more inexpensive, subtle way. Here are five of the top trends for spring 2010 and how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe with handbags.

Retro tie dye is back in style. This crazy, cool statement will be featured on dresses and tops this coming spring. If you’re not so keen on looking like a kaleidoscope, consider purchasing or making a tie dyed handbag. This is a perfect style to pair with an easy breezy tote bag. A match made in heaven that will get you envious looks where ever you go, a tie dyed tote bag proclaims to the world that you are fun and unfettered.

Another top trend that you will see mainly in skirts is feathers. Feathered skirts are the new vogue, but if you are uncertain about wearing a breezy skirt like I am, perhaps you could pull together a feathered handbag. I think a smaller clutch or evening bag is perfect for this trend as a larger bag seems like it would constantly be molting.

Monochromatic color schemes will be more popular this spring as well. I am excited about this trend since it is so easy to put together and makes you look taller and slimmer. If you stick to neutral colors, you can probably use one of your existing handbags to match color of your outfit or you can pick a handbag and match your outfit to it. I’m thinking all brown to match my favorite bag.

Even if you aren’t the type of person to buy a trendy handbag, this should be the exception. The color yellow promises to bring a ray of sunshine into the fashion world this spring and a yellow handbag is just so happy. Psychologists say that carrying a “happy” colored bag like yellow can actually lift your mood if you are feeling sad so splurge and buy yourself a bright, sunny bag.

To calm down those days when you are overwhelmed by tie dye and yellow, pastel prints come to the rescue. Monet style watercolors in abstract patterns are showcased primarily in dresses, but can also be found on handbags as well. A messenger bag would be an easygoing, calm, quiet addition to your outfit on days when you just need a little peace.
