The Luxe Tote
With the rising popularity of mini bags and clutches, we’ve seen a surge in bags roomy enough to put your other bag in, plus the rest of your essentials! These totes are so much more than your basic shopper—they’re elevated to luxury status with quality details, materials, and construction.
Backpacks are a perennial style favorite, for all ages and all styles. Find an updated version in leather or patterned fabric, or stick with the classic brights.

The Structured Bag
The structured bag is a callback to retro ladylike styles. It’s meant to be carried in your hand or at your wrist, for the life none of us actually have, but all wish we did! Look for pieces with elegant details and molded handles, in spring pastels or vibrant colorblocking.
The Textured Bag
This season, designers are using unique and creative textural treatments to stand out. Bags large and small are embossed, woven, embroidered, and quilted, in mixed media and unusual materials.

The Pretty Pump
As platforms rise on other shoes, they’ve all but disappeared from pumps, which are making a return to the simple, ladylike styles of the 60s. At heights ranging from kitten heels to sky-high stilettos, these exude accessible elegance.
The menswear trend is moving down to the feet, with oxfords and brogues galore, embellished with piping, perforation, and, of course, color! They’re the perfect companion to other menswear-inspired pieces, like the classic boyfriend jean.

The City Sandal
It’s the kind of sandal that can stand up to a day in your busy life, sturdier and more covered up than your basic flip-flop. The looks range from gladiators to cut-out boots.
The Spring Boot
We’re seeing more boots for spring and summer than we have in years past. In general, they’re lighter and brighter than boots you’d see in fall or winter. Elevate the look with studs, fringe, or colorful details.
