Embrace a bit of power dressing and add some red handbags to your arsenal. Basic black and brown handbags are all well and good, but if you want to shake things up then why not try a bold and punchy colour on for size? The colour red is often associated with energy and passion, and in some cultures is even associated with happiness. A red handbag would be a great way of adding some energy, and maybe even a little dose of happiness, to a neutral outfit. These red handbags are bound to brighten up your outfits.

1 Mini Barrel Bag
Red handbags can be quite daring, so a small bag like this one would be a great way to inject just the right amount of colour into your outfit. The mini barrel design is simple and chic, and comes with a long strap so it can be worn on the shoulder or across the body. Wear it with a classic outfit of a striped Breton top, cropped trousers, and ballet flats. While similar styles by Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton will set you back at least a couple of hundred dollars, this Topshop bag is much more affordable at $40.
2 Zip Shopper Bag
A roomy shopper is the ideal bag for toting around all your everyday essentials. This red shopper bag by Mango has a simple design and could easily accommodate a tablet or slim laptop. It has an open top with two top handles and zip details to the front. It will only set you back around $30 and would look great worn with a shift dress, trench coat, and ankle boots.
3 Zip Clutch Bag
If you prefer to only carry the bare essentials with you, then a compact side bag might be more up your alley. This clutch bag has a fold over design and comes with a long shoulder strap. It would be a great bag to wear at a festival or out at night. You can grab this particular bag from ASOS for $30 and you can find other compact bags at Nasty Gal and Topshop.
4 Lip Shaped Bag
Not brave enough to wear red lipstick? Well, how about donning a bright shade of red with a lip-shaped bag? This lip-shaped bag from Nordstrom comes in a glossy finish and would make a quirky addition to your outfit. At $26, it’s much cheaper than what you’d be paying for a Lulu Guinness designer original.
5 Leather Satchel
Add a preppy touch to your everyday outfits with a classic satchel. While you’re at it, why not pick one up in a daring red hue for that extra wow factor? This Cambridge Satchel Company satchel has a classic design with a clear luggage tag window, buckle fastening straps, and two interior compartments. It would look great worn with a vintage dress and lace up shoes. It’s pretty pricey at around $200 but you can find similar, more affordable satchels at Topshop.
6 Quilted Shoulder Bag
The quilted handbag has become a much coveted accessory. This quilted shoulder bag comes in a statement making red hue and features chain strap handles. While it’s not quite Chanel, this LOVE Moschino bag is still pretty pricey at around $300. If you can afford the splurge, team it with a neutral dress and patent shoes for a chic everyday look.
7 Woven Side Bag
This woven red bag from ASOS is a playful little number. It’s made from leather look material and has a shiny textured finish. It also has a chain strap with zip front detail. Wear it with a slouchy t-shirt, distressed jeans, and a floppy fedora for a cool off-duty look.
A colourful accessory is bound to brighten up your look this season. If you’re ready to amp up your outfits then try one of these red handbags on for size. Are you a fan of these red handbags?
