8 Handbag Colors You'll See Fashionistas Clutching In 2023

For those who happen to reside in the Northern hemisphere, spring is the time to finally shed your heavy coat, snow boots, hat, gloves, and scarves until the next winter commences. Losing all these protective layers can free up your wardrobe and accessories to finally be noticed in the way that they deserve. That's why spring is the perfect season for following and trying out fun new emerging handbag trends.

While feminine purse trends like the top handle bag are set to have a moment all season long, there really aren't any shapes or styles that are off-limits this spring. That is because this year, it's all about color. Keep an eye out for the hues on this list of the top trending colors for 2023 spring handbags. Choose your favorite or collect them all between now and next winter — the choice is yours. Here's what to look for. 

Scarlet red

Ready to get bold in the classic and sultry way? Now's your chance. Scarlet red handbags are officially a go this spring. Try pairing one with a neutral outfit, then adding a matching belt and a stunning red lipstick. Warning: not for those who aim to blend into the background. 

Chocolate brown

If you've ever admired the rich color of a chocolate Easter egg, this is your year. Warm, dark brown works perfectly as grounding neutral that matches just about every item in any wardrobe. You'll notice that this shade looks especially flattering on you if you happen to have warm-toned skin. 


Chartreuse is the color that falls exactly halfway between green and yellow. Like the brand new emerging spring leaves, you too can incorporate this lively shade into your daily routine. Grabbing a chartreuse bag is the perfect slightly spicy alternative to the typical pastel mint green often associated with spring fashion. 

Kelly green

If you love the idea of matching your accessories to nature this season but chartreuse just doesn't work for your skin tone or preferences, there's no need to worry. There's a second shade of green trending this spring: kelly green. This green leans less yellow and incorporates a tad more blue, making it a much more versatile option. 


Warm-toned neutrals continue to dominate the scene this spring with the emergence of tan, a lighter alternative to darker, richer chocolate brown. Again, this is a color that will complement warm or neutral-toned babes a little more than those with cool-toned skin shades. Of course, don't let that stop you from doing your thing.  

Blue jean

No need to adjust your calendar — it isn't actually 2001. Denim is just back in a big way for the spring and summer seasons of 2023. Go as dark or as light as you'd like with your blue jean bag. Bonus points if you can match the hue of Justin and Britney's infamous red carpet denim duo. 

Metallic silver

Metallic silver is having a major moment, as evidenced at the 2023 CMT Music Awards. This is the year to embrace your inner astronaut and seek out the shiniest, most futuristic metallic silver bag you can find. When you're finished with it, just set it aside in your closet until the trend re-emerges in 4042.

Metallic rainbow

Move aside, metallic silver. Something even more fun is beating down your door. Enter metallic rainbow. No need to decide on a color for your handbag when they're literally all present in the most shimmering, shining, splendid finish imaginable. Run — don't walk — to get in on this upcoming color trend of your dreams.
