Why Everyone Needs The It List Pink Handbag
Whether or not you’ve heard the term “Millennial Pink”, you’ve definitely seen it. While colors go in and out of fashion every season, this shade has taken over everything from fashion editors’ closets, Instagram-famous backdrops, designer packaging and now, your closet. So when Macy’s Fashion Office was curating their must-have accessories of the season, to no surprise, they named “the pink handbag” at the top of the It List for spring. Working with our buyers, they found a plethora of gorgeous options from the perfect work tote, to the everyday crossbody and the coveted bucket bag in shades ranging from blush to fluorescent pink. There’s one for every style—see how our most fashionable coworkers rock their fave pink bags.

“Proof that pink doesn’t have to be too sweet—I’m pairing my bag with menswear inspired shirting. I love that this Jill Jill Stuart classic stripe shirt looks instantly cool with the floral cropped top layered over. Since the top is very fashion forward, I’m wearing it with two of my favorites—a pair of white jeans and earrings. If you ask me, statement earrings go with everything!”

“This outfit is perfect to take me from a full day of meetings to cocktails with my girlfriends. I love a modern, yet timeless black and white dress that can be accessorized with a pop of color. The handbag is big enough to tote my laptop and shoes, while still showing off my fun personality. I say the outfit starts with a bag to take on your day!”
Name: Peggy Ekong
“As of late, when I want to add some color to my look, pink has been my go-to—whether it’s an accessory or a top, like I did here. Luckily, I work in a creative environment where wearing denim to work is totally acceptable. So I tucked the pink belle sleeve top into these amazing high-waisted, raw hem jeans & added wedge sandals to give me extra height. And the bag just pulls the whole look together!”

“I’m a bit of a style chameleon and love mixing and matching different styles. I take feminine pieces like this little pink bag and an off-the-shoulder floral print jumpsuit and add a bit of edge with a great leather jacket. I usually rock a top knot, so a great statement earring is just what I need to complete my look!”
