Pop of Color to Your Style

Satchels, shoulder bags, hobo, messengers, clutches; which ever style you adore, we the fashion obsessed gals know very well that a purse can make an outfit. If we are going to have an amazing arm accessory, lets make it fun and colorful. Unleash all the shades of pinks, blues, greens, and so on, bring the colors of the rainbow to complete your outfit and add a splash of vibrancy to your everyday closet. I understand that the all black head to toe outfits are always so chic and flattering, but to complete your look, don’t forget to add that extra pop of color. We will always love the neutral comfort color purses, however let’s be adventurous and explore the magnificent world of colorful arm candy, you’ll thank me later!

  • I love a pop of color! I need something new to pop this spring :).

    • Happy Friday Shay! 😉

    I just bought a small Vera Bradley crossbody bag in a beautiful red. I live this trend!

  • I have a pop of color bags post already in the works!!! They are so fun for spring and summer, and you gave some great options!

    • I totally agree Sheaffer!

  • I am a sucker for cobalt blue handbags. I think they go with everything! Susan

    • Cobalt blue is a perfect color. Well done, Susan!

  • Love those bright bags!!

    • Aren’t they pretty Claire?

  • I love pink:) Especially this time of year, a pop of pink can brighten my day!!


    • Pink is a fun color! 🙂

  • Mary

    I just learned to use the darkest strands in my hair as my key neutral and my eye color as a key accent. Along this thinking, it would be fun to find a cute purse in the color directly opposite to my eye color.

    mmmm – thanks for this post. It has really got me thinking!

  • I love a colourful bag especially around this time of year, I would like one of each in your top style board;)

    • Can I have one of each too? 😉

  • I’m liking bright yellow to go with all of my black, white, navy, coral for spring.

    • I can’t wait to see!! Bright yellow is a beautiful color.

  • Mary

    I love all the colors, am particularly fond of an old Dooney & Bourke fuchsia leather doctor type and my daughter has a mint green Kate Spade that is gorgeous!

    • I’m obsessing over all of the colors!

  • I am going clothes shopping tomorrow and one of the things on my list is a new handbag (now that my baby is approaching two years old and can wear her own little backpack w/change of clothes and a couple pullups, so I don’t have to lug around a diaper bag 24/7)…and I have been seriously contemplating going with a pop of color vs my usual safe black. The cobalt and scuba blue that are very in for this spring both appeal to me. Kelly or emerald green are also gorgeous. I am a sucker for almost anything blue or green. Since I have a limited budget I don’t know what I will be able to find at thrift stores/Ross/Target…but I am gonna be on the lookout in any case!!

    • I love blue or green colors. I’m sure you will run into a bag or two at Ross or Target. They are very popular right now.

  • Heidi from Canada

    Love all the purses in the top picture. The aqua blue one is what I’m looking for in the spring/summer. I bought a bright yellow, a royal blue and a pink one last year. Love the bright colors with my black, navy and white summer outfits.

  • Shara

    Do you have a link for that dark green bag? It’s gorgeous!

    • Let me search for it Shara and i’ll send it over!

  • Nancy

    I wear black scrubs every day to work. I LOVE the pop of color from a handbag ! It makes me feel happy!

    • Pop of color would make me happy too!

  • I have a green Jessica Simpson bag that I got on clearance for $20 last year. I am dying to pull it out when the sun starts shining!

    • I love all of Jessica Simpson’s collection!

  • Lemma

    love, love the Pop of color bags!! But I am obsessed with the big dark green one on top!! Do you have a link for that one.. Thanks for all the awesome posts?

    • I’ll look for it Lemma.

  • Courtney

    I just received a new Stella & Dot bag in a gorgeous kelly green! I’ve been pinning outfit inspiration to with kelly green bags ever since! I can’t wait for spring!!

    • Kelly Green is just a gorgeous color! I can’t wait to see the outfits you come up with.
