Get your shopping wish-list together for spring 2021’s handbag collection!

The styles on the runways this year are diverse, ranging from practical and functional to whimsical and fun.

The Paris and New York shows have wrapped up and we’ve had some time to digest the go-to handbag trends for spring summer 2021.

Handbags and accessories are the real money makers of any fashion business.

Women prefer investing in purses, jewelry and shoes, to investing in designer clothing, because there's always a chance that measurements will change and the clothing will no longer fit.

A great handbag will always fit. Handbags are also a great choice for investing in trends because they're usually smaller and cost less than, say, a statement coat.

This spring, designers from Bottega Veneta to Tory Burch played with unusual proportions, materials, and style to stand out from the mass competition.

If you're not in the market for a Tory Burch or other designer handbag, you can still make use of the most popular spring bag trends.

We've distilled the trends into categories and have vegan suggestions to help you make fashionable, yet ethical, choices for spring 2021.

There are too many bag trends to name, so we have rounded up our favorites for spring 2021 (many of which are also in style for summer 2021), along with our suggestions for vegan versions.

Our picks for these 2021 spring bag trends will keep you fashionable while keeping animals safe.


RAFFIA AND CROCHET BAGS

Straw bags have bee having a very long moment. It's quite possible you already have one in your closet, and if so, you're set to be styling in spring 2021.

Congratulations on having the foresight to invest in such an enduring piece!

If you didn't already buyraffia or crochet bags for the spring summer 2021 season, don't worry, there are lots of options. Since straw bags are so popular, you can select any style according to your taste and mood.

The practice of making straw bags is ancient, dating back to the Egyptians.

This classic bag that has its roots in market baskets is now a fashion forward 2021 trend.

Crochet bags are back too, all the way from the 1970s. If you're a crafter, now's your time to shine with a handmade, on-trend accessory for 2021.

Our Fern bag is made of straw and lined in polyester. In rectangular or circular styles, it comes in two colors and is perfect for your hot-weather getaway.

And bonus, the square or rectangular shape is another spring 2021 trend, so if you opt for the quadrilateral version, you'll be hitting two trends at once.

SLOUCHY

The slouchy hobo bag is another trend for spring 2021. It's also a trend for summer 2021, so if you buy one you'll be fashionable until fall.

We've got some great slouchy options for you, too.

The Cleo is giant and slouchy. If you are a light packer, you might be able to get away with just this bag on a weekend trip.

At nearly 20" wide, there's not much you won't be able to stuff into it.

And with options in a rainbow of colors, you're bound to find one that works for your wardrobe.

If you're going to Scarborough Fair (or even if you aren't), the Rosemary is another great option for hitting the slouchy tote trend hard.

There's enough room in here to use it as weekend bag if you are a light packer.

And you'll be on-trend for 2021 at the same time.

IN A CLUTCH

Clutches are timeless, and they featured heavily on the runway shows for both spring and summer 2021.

So if you're in the market for a new clutch, invest assured that you'll be current with handbag trends at least until fall 2021.

OurVegan Women's Envelope Leather Clutch Bag is a really big clutch, as far as clutches go.

This size is in line with bag trends for summer 2021, but the fact that it's a clutch means it's stylish for spring as well.

This zippered bag features a large, metal-accented cut out and a chunky wrist strap.

This is a slightly edgy look that comes in nine colors, including two shades of teal, pink, red, blue and neutrals.

This classic faux leather clutch is classic for a reason. This sleek and sophisticated style is versatile enough to take you to just about any occasion.

The pink color functions as a neutral - it really goes with everything! This clutch is also multi-functional - you can use it in your big bag as an organizer, and then take it out by itself for the evening.

Its versatility makes it a fabulous investment for spring and beyond.

Strong among this season's trends is the humble bucket bag. This is another trend that will carry you through the summer of 2021, so don't be afraid to invest!

Verdant shades were all over the runways for spring summer 2021. If you're looking for green bags, we've got you covered.

Thisgreen vegan crossbody bag comes in the most stunning shade of emerald.

If comes in other colors, too, but the green is what's hot for spring summer 2021 trends.

It's fuss-free while being super-trendy.

This bucket canvas handbag also comes in green, among many other colors, ensuring that you can hit two trends with one accessory.

The trend almost turns into a movement when smaller multi-brand online stores pop up, which offer curated selections from sustainable brands.
