If you are saving up for a new spring bag pick up one in a neutral tone like the Marc Jacobs Garbo Gene Bag ($1,295 at Saks) or the Marc Jacobs Quilting Metallic Sandy Shoulder Bag ($595 at Saks). Both bags continue the ladylike trend in bags with top handles or chains that we'll keep seeing for at least a couple more seasons I believe. What's great is that you can start wearing the bags now with your dark wintery attire and still look really put together. It will give your black outfits a nice pop! I love how Marc is bringing in touches of Louis Vuitton with the addition of padlocks now on some of his bags.
The khaki tones in these two bags also work well for winter and spring. Pictured above are the Marc Jacobs Quilting XL Single Leather Bag ($795 at Saks) and the Marc Jacobs Vanessa Simple Singe Leather Mini Bag ($395 at Saks).
