Best Bet: Malaury Bag

With the weather warming, it’s time to deviate from trusty black into a more spring-ready palette. The limited-edition Maury bag from French brand Comptoir des Cotonniers makes an ideal midsize swap. Available in a range of colors — from deep green to bright red, yellow, and blue — the boxy lambskin bag can be carried by hand or slung over the shoulder with the detachable strap. At seven-and-a-half-inches high and a foot wide, it’s just the right shape for your iPad.
