I (heart) Gap bags. Really, I do! The land of basics and affordable fashion for the masses has been turning out increasingly fabulous bags of all shapes and sizes for a couple of seasons now. The Gap fall handbags were great, and the spring offerings are even better. Suspend your disbelief while you take a look at my picks from the recently released spring line. I think you'll agree that this isn't the same Gap fashionistas were shunning just five years ago.

My favorite spring bag by a mile is this white Leather Cinch Hobo (right). The clean look, subtle metal details, and super soft leather are all perfect for pairing with spring's brighter palette. No one will ever believe that you scored this chic leather hobo at Gap. It is available in White (shown) or Brown leather, or black nylon.

For a sportier look, try the Canvas Duffle. The well-placed brown accents and pleated front pocket are unexpectedly well thought out details that make this duffle more fashionable than your average canvas bag.

This cute little Trapunto Satchel is 100% casual chic. It would make a perfect weekend handbag or resort carry-all for that beach vacation you've been planning.

I love a good tote for weekend road trips and this Gap Large Signature Canvas Tote is one of the most stylish large totes I've seen, and certainly one of the most affordable. The brown paisley print and contrasting sporty red straps make this bag fashion-forward on top of practical.
