Don’t get me wrong — I love eye-catching, statement-making handbags in bright, festive colors like coral or turquoise, but there’s something about a smooth, luxurious, tan satchel that just reminds me of the freshness of spring. Maybe it’s the creamy color paired with the immediate appeal of a brand-new handbag, or maybe it’s my longing for a Spring Break vacation on a gorgeous, sandy beach — either way, neutral hues are totally underrated. In fact, modern neutral handbags are anything but a snooze-fest. Opt for something biker-inspired with zipper details like the Botkier Venice Satchel, or something more classic and elegant like the Fendi Superstar Bauletto. I love the schoolbag-inspired shape of this Ann Taylor Small Lady Satchel, but if you’re looking for something that can carry a heavy load, this Chloe Marcie Bag is big enough to hold all your loot without looking overdone. And finally, for a little added texture, consider a croc-embossed bag like this Michael Kors Gia Satchel, which adds some shine and visual interest to your otherwise typical tan leather bag!
