Lilac Purple Spring Bag Trend 2013

Color is big this season and into Spring 2013. All the designers are showing bags in lots of brights from greens, yellows, reds, blues, to purples. I am loving the lilac, purple, violet spring bags trend for Spring 2013. Everything is so fresh for spring and with the floral fashion trend, it is like you are wearing a bouquet of flowers this coming season.

There are some great picks for Spring 2013 from designers like Balenciaga, Chloe, Anya Hindmarch, Oscar De La Renta, Proenza Schouler, Prada, Rebecca Minkoff, and Modcloth.

Check out some of our favorites here:

Chloe violet cross body saddle bag is on sale for 20% off. Love this bag because it is definitely one of those bags you will want to pull out of your closet all spring and summer. Think of it with a white blouse and jeans carried messenger style. This bag will hold everything and elevate your simple jean and shirt outfit to the next level so you can go right into the Per Se for lunch with no issue if you so choose.

Modcloth I like it like that bag for $54.99 can be used as a clutch or as a shoulder bag. Its flat body style and printed reptile detail on its lilac background and gold hardware makes this bag a no brainer for Spring 2013.

Balenciaga City Arena bag in Glycine with rose gold hardware is an iconic bag that can be used for school, work, play, and travel. This versatile bag is easily going to become your go to bag because it is such a great looking bag that can take a little bit of distress and still keep looking great.

Anya Hindmarch Marano Dancer LED-lit glitter-finished clutch in purple is 70% off from $795 to $238.50 and so chic for the holidays. The color is subtle but eye catching. This clutch can easily go to drinks with friends or a holiday party.

Proenza Schouler PS11 is now a classic. The hard calf leather gives the bag a sheen that sets up the very cool looking hardware on the bag. The bag can be worn crossbody or shoulder bag style. The new violet color is just so enigmatic that you will want to wear one of your coat capes with a fedora when you wear this bag.

Oscar De La Renta Small Dex bag is a perfect lady’s satchel bag with a top handle and shoulder strap. If you want classic ODLR updated in this pretty violet color look no further than the Small Dex bag. It is very chic.

Prada Vernice Tote in Purple is a great bag that comes in a durable leather that is scratch resistant. If you are a mom with young children this is the bag for you. You will be able to take this Prada bag everywhere without worrying about scuffs. You can take this bag from boardroom to homeroom with no issues.

Fab Find of the Week: Oscar de la Renta Alligator-Embossed Leaf Belt

Belts can be a dime a dozen, so when a distinctive one, such as this Oscar de la Renta Alligator-Embossed Leaf Belt, catches our eye, we have to report it back to our readers at TheEnvied! It’s a terrific stand alone piece that offers a mix of luxe with artisanal craftsmanship via the leaf applique design. Available in cherry, peanut, or dark brown leather, we really think the design pops best in the rich red shade, and would recommend styling it with a classic structured bag, hammered hoop earrings, and a soft, slightly billowing feminine dress to offset the stiffness of the leather. What would you pair with this Oscar belt?

Oscar de la Renta’s Embroidered Suede Flats

Every season there’s one piece that makes you swoon in utter delight and desire. For this coming fall, something that falls into this category are Oscar de la Renta’s Embroidered Suede Flats. Lush, luxurious, and colorful, these shoes approach the pinnacle of ballerina flat chic. This one pair of shoes can go from daytime elegance to evening impact in one step, literally! The rich embroidery in vivid red and gold on black recalls Russian textiles, making them the ideal accompaniment for Fall’s deep neutrals and warm textures.

Pair with dark skinny jeans and sweaters for day, or with a pair of menswear-inspired tuxedo trousers and a red silk blouse for a chic cocktail look after dark. Either way, these flats encapsulate the statement of the season: Bohemian luxury, sumptuous detail, and glorious color!
