My Black and Brown Handbags Are Boring Me, But These Colorful Bags Are a Vibe

These days, when I get dressed, I really get dressed. Since I have spent a majority of the past year in sweatpants, when I have the rare opportunity to put on a full look, you better believe I pull through. So far, that has entailed tons of statement boots, colorful strappy sandals, and all the colorful clothing to match. Usually, you will see me carrying the same black Prada nylon shoulder bag on repeat, but this season, I’ve been craving something a tad louder. Instead of constantly reaching for my black and brown handbags, I now find myself itching to carry a bag that is full of personality in the color department.

Instead of a practical neutral, I now prefer an extremely saturated hue that will bring in compliments galore and top off my already slightly extra outfits. If you’re sitting there wondering why a colorful handbag is a good idea, I’ve shopped out 36 that will help you understand. From hot pink to bright green, I can assure you there is no shortage of colors in the roundup below. As we enter into summer, I can’t think of one reason why you shouldn’t always have a joyous carryall on your arm. Be it jeans and a T-shirt or a simple black dress, a colorful bag is always going to be the sweetest cherry on top of a warm-weather look. 

This is the bag you carry when you want to tell everyone you’re a fashion girl without telling everyone you’re a fashion girl.
