Accessorize: Blush Bags


Blush Colored Bags

1. Tory Burch ‘Francese’ Slouchy Satchel, $495;  2. H&M, $40; 3. Steve Madden, $88


This spring, the palest shade of pink, or “blush” will be everywhere. It can be a hard color to wear, as it runs the risk of washing out many skin tones. But, as an accessory, it adds a lovely modern update to your spring wardrobe pieces.

A bag, of course, is the easiest way to incorporate a trend-right color, especially when it’s in a classic shape. You could spend a small fortune on a bag. There were some I loved but $2,000.00? For a pink bag?

Instead, we rounded up our top three picks. This Tory Burch option is as rich as I would go. If you love the color and can see it being an everyday bag, go for it. I like when Tory does a bag and doesn’t plaster her logo all over it. I have one I picked up for my trip to Paris a few summers ago, and I still wear it at least a few times a week. It doesn’t look like a Tory Burch bag, and that’s why I like it so much.

Not to be outdone, H&M hit it out of the park with this under $40 tote that is sleek and elegant. If you like what I would call “outfit bags” – a bag you only use for a few specific looks, this is a nice option. It’s the least practical bag on the list, but it’s priced for fun, not function.

The most surprisingly stylish bag I found is this Steve Madden. When was the last time you thought of Steve Madden for anything? This bag, with it’s slouchy style, and subtle tassels look like a high-end bag for under $100.
