10 Vegan Bags to Help you Embrace Spring

10 Vegan Bags to Help you Embrace Spring

Happy Spring! As I’ve told you before, all of my beauty and home products are cruelty-free. When I decided to make the switch to cruelty-free, I took a good hard look at the leather products I owned. Yes, I had leather products – from belts to bags. I couldn’t justify going cruelty-free with my products yet also owning leather items – so, I made the switch too! Now, I will not purchase leather or other non-vegan products.

This wasn’t a hard decision by any means but I did realize it would impact a number of purchasing decisions. I won’t buy a car with leather seats, for example. And will never own a leather couch or suede shoes.

This can seem tough when everyone is transitioning their spring wardrobes and purchasing cute pastel (often leather) bags. But I’ve learned you don’t need leather – or other non-vegan materials – to have a cute bag. Here are 10 of my favorite vegan bags that can help you embrace spring! I’ve included options of different price ranges and styles, so you’ll be able to find something that fits your needs and budget.

Sole Society Elie Crossbody

Why you need it: Spring is all about fun colors! This one is small enough for you to take on all of your warm weather adventures, but will fit all of the essentials – with some additional room.

Turquoise is one of my personal favorite colors – and the fun shape makes it the perfect grab-and-go bag for spring.

Matt & Nat Fabi Backpack

Why you need it: Backpacks are a big trend right now, and this neutral backpack with top flap is the perfect option for spring! It has adjustable straps and even a small zipper pocket on the back.

It’s a “not too big, not too small” backpack. You can also widen the top if you need a little bit more room.

Pixie Mood Alicia Tote

Why you need it: This is a great everyday tote and the light gray color is a perfect neutral for the warmer months. There’s a small cutout detail at the top that gives it the perfect unique look. It also has an adjustable crossbody strap and interior pouch to hold all your necessities. 

It’s convenient and will go with just about anything!

Angela Roi Hamilton Mini Chain Cross-body

Why you need it: Just take a look at the color! I’m not usually too adventurous with my bag colors – but this mustard adds just a little pop to any outfit (and no, it’ s not just a fall color). Carry it as a crossbody or shoulder bag. The silver hardware allows you to dress it up or dress it down too – so it’s ready for any occasion.

Lulus Constantinople Beaded Clutch

Why you need it: This clutch has just the right amount of chicness (is that a word? I’m making it one, if not!). You can use it for a nice date night or bring it along on a fun beach day! White is the perfect color to get you through spring and summer. It even comes with a gold chain strap so you can throw it over your shoulder when on-the-go!

Cher Bow Tote by Gunas New York

Why you need it: I’m a sucker for anything with a bow! This pale pink bow tote is a necessity for spring as it’s simple but elegant. The inside is lined green so it’s the perfect contrast. 

This also comes with a long shoulder strap so you can easily take it to-go – whether traveling, out to dinner or simply running around town.

Ceibo Mini Circle Ring Purse

Why you need it: This pistachio might be my new favorite color! The gold hardware (and beautiful ring handle) bring out its warm tones. Coupled with the fun circle shape, this bag easily dresses up any outfit. 

Another thing I love is that all Ceibo bags are handmade in Houston! The website notes: “It takes 3 hours 30 minutes to make one Mini Circle Ring Bag (Pattern cutting, gluing and assembly, painting edges, finishing touches).”

Urban Expressions Mackenzie

Why you need it: This tote reminds me of warm weather! Through the perforated vegan leather you can see a fun, floral insert. It’s removable and features all the colors of spring – and even has two slip pockets and one zip pocket. The gold studded handles gives it just the right amount of bling.

You can fit anything you could ever need in here, whether you’re heading to the beach or grabbing lunch with friends.

Jeane & Jax Virginie Hobo Bag with Braid Detail

Why you need it: If you’re always on the go and want something you can grab as you’re running out the door, this is the perfect bag. You can fill this right up with everything you need. The braid detailing dresses it up a bit too!

Pixie Mood Nicole Pouch

Why you need it: Because it’s fun, that’s why! I’ve never had a cork bag but this would absolutely be my top choice. The fun splashes of color are perfect for spring. It comes with detachable straps so you can throw it over your shoulder and not think twice.
