o Totes - In styles ranging from floral to studded and leather to straw, runways were covered with large tote bags this year. Spacious and accommodating, these bags are perfect for anyone on the go looking for a chic way to carry all of their essentials.

o Mini - The mini bag has been going strong for a few seasons now and this spring is no exception. Miniature replicas of iconic bags have become some of the most coveted pieces this season. While these bags may be small, the statement they make is powerful. So, grab your phone, credit card and lip gloss and go!

o Satchel -This classic messenger bag shape is at the top of this seasons’ must have list! From structured and studded to flat and oversized, this wardrobe staple remains sophisticated and chic. When you need more room than a clutch but less than a tote, the satchel is the perfect choice!

o Crossbody - It looks like this classic is here to stay! From music festivals to a night out on the town, this hands-free bag is a wardrobe essential. The long strap makes this a great “grab and go” accessory.
