Pretty In Pastels: 17 Bags To Wear This Season

Prepare for a spring awakening

Spring is here and warmer weather is starting to become the norm. With that, the transition of your wardrobe from winter to spring is imminent. Soon enough, coats will be a thing of the past and it will be acceptable to wear a T-shirt outside without freezing to death. With the excitement of this spring enlightenment on the horizon, we can’t help but feel an urge to break away from the dark colors we wore all winter long and refresh our spring wardrobe's lineup.

Pastels for spring are certainly not a groundbreaking concept, but it’s undeniable that they instantly spruce up a drab wardrobe and ring in the arrival of warmer temperatures. It’s time to start working on spring-ifying” our everyday looks, and there's no easier or less overwhelming way to begin than with accessories. This season’s bags are unique in shape and texture—and available in a range of prettiest pastel shades, from peachy pink to powder blue.

We rounded up 17 of the cutest pastel bags of the season (all for under $400) to give our wardrobes a reboot. Click through the gallery below for a sartorial spring awakening.
