Last week we answered the question about how to wear bright bags for spring. Now that we’ve shown you some great runway-inspired styling options, we thought it only fair that we scout out some of the best bright bags for spring. Here are some of our favorites to update your wardrobe in every price range:

Q. I’m totally obsessed with the Versace skirt in this Elle Magazine feature. I haven’t been able to find anything like it in a more reasonable price range. Can you find/suggest similar pieces that cost less? It would be great to get the entire look!
A. I also love the way Joe Zee styled this high waisted front-vent skirt from Versace ($795 at neimanmarcus.com) - it’s the perfect mix of sophisticated chic (the pencil skirt), sex appeal (the corset) and casual (the military jacket). Paired with strappy python heels, it’s a great look that combines many of spring’s top trends. We styled a similar look for you using affordable pieces:
Q. I have such a hard time finding cropped pants/jeans that actually hug the calves a la Audrey Hepburn. Can you recommend any?A. Cropped skinny pants happen to be a big trend for spring, so it will be easier to find the pants you’re looking for. Try looking for heavier weight cropped leggings, skinny cropped trousers or legging jeans - these will hug your calves and give you the look you’re after. Below are some options to try.
Q. After what feels like the 100th snowstorm this winter, I have come to the conclusion that my winter boots just aren’t cutting it. I need something that’s cute, warm and waterproof. Any suggestions?
A. Though it might seem late in the season to buy a good pair of snow boots, it’s actually the perfect time. Just about everything is on sale, and whatever you buy this year, you’ll certainly wear next year and for years after that. So buy the best quality boot you can afford, it will be worth it! Below is a selection of stylish and functional winter boots that will almost have you wishing for the next snowfall.
Q. I’m trying to score a trench coat on sale during the holidays. I’m looking for a single breasted trench coat in petite with a removable lining and removable hood. The hood is not a must-have, but the removable lining is. I have searched and searched for years and I have yet to find one. Any help would be appreciated!
A. You’re right, that is a tall (or petite!) order. We found the perfect coat for you that meets all of your requirements and is available in brown or black. The Gallery ‘Nepage’ Three Quarter Length Trench, on sale for $129.90 at nordstrom.com. It’s a classic single breasted style with a removable lining and detachable hood which will give you 3-season wear. Below are a few more options as well.
