A great rule of thumb for getting away with the bright bag trend, is to stay true to your own aesthetic. If you have a rocker edge to your style, be on the lookout for bright bags with fringe or stud embellishments. A large envelope clutch may do the trick for a sleek gal, and a versatile tote shape may be where it’s at for the sports star.

Trends are all about adapting what you see on the runway into your own reality, so finding a bright bag that suits your personality and present wardrobe is the best way to measure success.

    I think bright bags for the spring is an absolute must for a fashionista! You make a great point when you say that one shouldn’t be scared to pair a bright bag with a bright ensemble. I personally like to use the color in the hand bag that is represented the least amount and revolve my outfit around that color to make it really pop and stand out in the handbag! For example, for this Banana Republic colorblock bag I would wear a dress or blouse in the peach color around the buckle to really make the color stand out.
