On My Mind: Coloured Bags

And of course there is nothing wrong with that, but since investing in a few coloured options, I fell in love with the way they can transform an outfit by just adding a splash of colour. In fact it changed my style and made me feel happier with wearing not much colour when it comes to clothes. That doesn’t mean a black bag is not the ultimate choice when it comes to an everyday bag, but it isn´t the only option. Maybe a coloured bag is exactly what you need…

 

Well to be completely honest with you guys, I was very sceptical when it came to coloured bags for a long time. There where all sorts of false assumptions in my head that kept me from buying one. “They are surely very hard to style. They don´t match a lot of different outfits. I can´t choose the right colour. They get dirty way to easily”…I could go on for much longer, but well, that would be quite boring. The point is: I was wrong. Coloured bags are a true gem. Why? Well they:

 

Add some playfulness into an outfit

Effortlessly infuse your outfit with some colour

Make a real statement

Lift your mood

Elevate a basic outfit into one with unique character

Create a bold, stunning colour contrast within your outfit, or match it perfectly

Here are some suggestions:

THE SAVE CHOICE

A neutral shade like beige or army green. They are both such a good match to a lot of different colours!

 

A BOLD CLASSIC

The bright red bag. It never goes out of style & is especially great if you are like me and don´t wear much coloured clothes…

 

TWO NEARLY BLACK OPTIONS

Navy & oxblood. Perfect to ease your way into the whole coloured bag world 🙂

 

As you can see in the photos, I went for a dusty pink one ( from & Other Stories, not available anymore ) and recently added an army green bag ( from Steffen Schraut – here ) to my collection. I don´t even know if army green is a neutral technically, but let me tell you, it is as versatile as one! So many colours are a great match to this shade of green, it´s amazing! You want a coloured bag for yourself? I have some amazing suggestions at the end of this post…

 

That´s it for today guys! Do you own a coloured bag? Leave me a comment down below… & make sure to come back on Sunday to see me rocking a new Capsule Wardrobe outfit 🙂

 

I wish you the best day ever!
