As important as a wear-all-the-time, neutral handbag (something like this) is, I think something bright is just as necessary. As somebody who relies on white, black and grey basics to get me through the work week, a colorful handbag is a must-have. It’s the easiest way to add a pop of color to my look. And they’re not just reserved for the warm weather months (though I’m really hoping to add this to my closet come spring)! 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. For example, take a look at this Rochas bag that I have been swooning over for the last week. The kelly green color is so classic making it easy to pair with so many different things. I think the key to a bright bag is keeping the silhouette simple. Opt for a timeless shape punched up in a standout shade. (Something like this, maybe?) Scroll through to shop my favorites.
