Our correspondent Julie Chang Murphy has curated a list of some of the best luxury designer handbags, totes, crossbody and bucket bags in bright citrus colors like lime, tangerine, orange and lemon for summer 2022.

what are the best luxury designer citrus hued handbags for summer 2022?

Color is a powerful communication tool and can quickly boost one’s mood and behavior. But wearing a “happy” color is a highly personal choice. You might philosophically love a certain hue but think it makes your complexion look sallow.

Carrying it, on the other hand, allows for more possibilities. If you love bold and confident citrus colors on the lemon yellow, orange and lime green spectrum, but feel like they may be too much to wear, try a statement bag instead.

They’re an unexpected and cheerful color pop that will inject a warm and vivacious energy to any outfit. Like a cold glass of OJ in the morning, these citrus hued handbags are sure to put some pep in your step.

7. See by Chloe

We think a backpack shouldn’t take itself too seriously — like See by Chloe’s pouffy and slouchy version made from recycled polyester. Though it’s adorable, it’s packed with utility with plenty of zippered pockets and adjustable and padded straps.

An airy crochet bag is a must-have summer bag. We love this one in a cheery citrus hue that has a subtle retro flair.

The Kelly Bag needs no introduction and if you’re going to invest in one, why not in a spirited, verdant green? It is the color of money and envy after all! This one is pre-owned and for sale on 1st Dibs.

BUY NOW – $23,940.

10. Fjallraven

Durable, quick-drying and water-resistant the Fjallraven backpack is in a class of its own for functionality and street cred. This model has room for a 15” laptop with a special padded compartment for commuters but the spunky yellow color is all fun.
