During these tail-end winter months, push your boring bags aside and opt for bright colors. A neutral bag is definitely a necessity, but with redundant, boring weather, it's time to spice up your look. As somebody who relies on white, black and grey basics to get me through the week, a colorful handbag is a must-have. It’s the easiest way to add a pop of color to any outfit.
I love the way a colorful bag brightens up a dreary winter ensemble. I actually end up reaching for my bright colored handbags just as much as I do my neutrals. Plus, a lot of the brighter bags actually end up working as a neutral does. Reach for a traditional color in a bolder, brighter tone, and you'll be surprised how many looks it goes with. Classic colors are easy to pair with many things, so keep it easy for yourself and go with blues, reds, yellows, greens or oranges. Really, any color on the basic color wheel will suit you just right. The key is to choose a timeless shade with a factor that screams "look at me".
Whether the bag is a large handbag or a small clutch, it's trendy to turn up the color. For smaller bags, Rebecca Minkoff, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade all have a plethora of bright options that are perfect for any season, and anytime you're looking to brighten up your look. These brands also have great options for larger bags, too, along with Tory Burch and Diane von Furstenberg. Almost any Nordstrom is bound to carry these brands and even more. Bright handbags are a very widespread trend at the moment, so any department store should have them on display and ready for you to make your own.
Don't let the fact that it's winter get in the way of your color choices. Color is chic year round, all seasons, no matter the weather, etc. Add color to the most basic, plain outfits and you'll be on a next level of stylish. It may be a hard adjustment at first from your usual, neutral bag, but it'll be well worth it once compliments start flying your way. Shop wisely and pick out colors that are traditional with a spin. Don't forget to consider your favorite shapes and sizes, too. Picking out a new bag is all about you, so take the trend and make it yours.
Keep it colorful.
