Take a ladylike silhouette, toss it in a girly hue, and you've got the crux of spring's handbag lineup. A bright bag is the perfect pop to liven up your winter coat and help you coast into the fairer season. Last year's neons are taking the backseat while this season, the real news is shades of sherbet, sorbet, and acidic pastels.

In the gallery above we have ten bright bags you can pair with your winter gear now and wear well into the warmer months. Pair a mint bag from Rebecca Minkoff or Coach with a black or navy overcoat now and with light denim come spring. A pale lime green satchel from Opening Ceremony pops against your camel coat this month and will liven up your little white dresses once temperatures rise. And easy peach crossbody from J.Crew can transition from puffer to military jacket to tank top weather without missing a beat. Get ideas galore in the gallery above, and start your spring day dreaming right now.—Nicola Fumo
