Trend Watch: Bold Bright Bags

Like a ray of sunshine, vibrant handbags are back this spring, and many celebrities are making big style statements by pairing these shockingly vivid bags against a simple, monochromatic look. “My favorite bag is the new Marc Jacobs bright yellow bag, because it’s fun and cheerful,” says Rachel Bilson. Nicole Richie is also a fan of this hot MJ bag, and she smartly paired it with a chic little black dress at the MJ fashion show in New York. Designers like Jacobs and Luella Bartley are featuring crayon-colored bags that look super stylish against spring’s hottest neutral colors, like white, black, and tan. To capture the look, keep it balanced: “Pair any small or big handbag in a strong, bold color with a simple, contrasting color-neutral outfit. Don’t over-accessorize. Less is definitely more,” says celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez.
