When the weather starts to warm up, there are a lot of little changes that happen: I make more regular pedicure appointments (Deborah Lippmann’s “Blue Orchid” is my current polish fave), I start wearing more sunscreen, and my white denim moves to the top of the stack. Also on that list? Making the switch to a bright bag. There’s something about the return of summer that has me wanting to put aside my neutral-hued handbags in favor of those with a little more pop. This Loewe clutch is my current favorite in that category. It’s such a happy little bag. What’s most surprising about it is how versatile it is. Thanks to a rainbow of colors, I can pretty much carry it with whatever I want – from a bright orange cocktail dress to a simple striped tee.  I guess when you think of it like that, this bag is actually sort of a neutral.

If you’re thinking about investing in your own rainbow bag this season, you’re in luck! From a lego-inspired carryall to a super-sparkly clutch, there are so many good options right now. My tip-top favorite is Sara Battaglia’s bucket bag. It’s a splurge but oh-so fun. Also on the splurge side of things: a Balenciaga striped shopper and any of the fab options from Edie Parker. You can’t go wrong with this clutch (or this one!), and I also really love her newest bucket bag style. For something Edie Parker-esque but a lot easier on the wallet, check out this option from Milly. Looking for something with a little more beach appeal? This is it. I’m obsessed.

There’s plenty more, too. Scroll down to shop ’em all.
