Pair it With This: Pastel Purses

pastel handbags

A pastel handbag this spring/summer season is pretty much mandatory! Bury all neon bags back into the depths of your closet for now, and spring for a few options that may have a bit of punch to them, but are still decidedly pastel. Rebecca Minkoff is doing an amazing with her offerings for the spring, but plenty of other brands offering a variety of styles and hues, from nude and blush to mint, baby purple and blue, softened pink, and more! Sizes tend to skew a bit smaller and structured, however choose the shape and shade that feels right for you, from dusty to glossy, and you will be amazed how easy the paler shades are to incorporate into your existing wardrobe!

In pairing a pastel handbag with other items, you don’t want to go too juvenile OR look like a walking Easter egg with your look, so keep the pastels found elsewhere to a minimum with one item, be it a dress, blouse, or pants. Sticking to a largely neutral palette
