Look We Love: Color-block Bags

The multi-hued trend makes its way to accessories. We dig.

We don’t know about you, but we are so. very. ready. for a big dose of bold color. And when it feels like you’ve been stranded on winter’s gray and black fashion island for far too long, a double (or triple!) shot of vibrant hues just seems appropriate. One way to work in some major color: Go for the ultra-graphic, high-drama combos of mod, geometric color-blocking. We love this ’60s-esque look in clothes, so naturally we’re feeling the reinterpretation of crisp color-blocking when applied to fold-over clutches, ladylike shoulder bags, and structured satchels. Shop the eight faves above, then click through our slideshow to see 12 more graphic goodies.
