Handbags are the great equalizer of fashion. No matter your height or size, a stunning handbag can complement your look. We asked Danielle DiFerdinando, the Ellicott City native behind the successful Danielle Nicole handbag line, for her top purse trends of spring.

Colors:

Neon: orange, pink and lime

Feminine pastels

Brights: coral, cobalt blue and teal

Shapes:

Structured mini cross-body bags are the leading shape this season.

Clutches: "Make sure they are sleek and modern simple," she recommends.

Color blocking:

"Mixing and matching complimentary colors to create a timeless, fun and flirty look to your wardrobe," she advises.

Metal hardware:

Look for designers to include metal detailing on their bags this season. For example, Danielle Nicole hardware will adorn bags such as this Peyton satchel.
