These Handbag Colors Will Never Go Out of Style

When you think about timeless staples, you might automatically think of little black dresses, pearl earrings, and white button-downs, among others. When it comes to handbags, though, we all have a favorite silhouette. From totes and shoppers to fanny packs and crossbody styles, all handbags have a place in our closets (and hearts).

Though we might alternate between them when it comes to what colors we gravitate toward, that's when they become truly seasonless. Brown, red, black, mustard, and forest-green styles work for every season, and today we're going to prove it. Scroll on to see which color is your favorite. (And maybe shop a new silhouette.)

1. Black 

Black will always be, well, the new black. You can never go wrong when purchasing a black purse.

And now I'm ready to book a beach trip.

A cool classic you'll wear forever.

2. Brown 

Just like black, you can't go wrong with a brown bag. Simply go through the fashion archives, and you'll see more than a handful of brown bags you'd still wear today. 

This will elevate any outfit.

3. Red

When you want to make your outfit pop, you can always count on a red bag. Red bags are our favorite styling trick to elevate a neutral outfit. 

The slouch adds such a fashion-forward touch.

An everyday crossbody bag that makes a statement.

4. Forest Green 

Contrary to its slime-green cousin, forest green will never go out of style. There's something about this hue that makes any bag look impeccably chic. 

5. Mustard

If you already have your neutral bag collection set and want to expand to colors, we highly suggest going for a mustard bag.

You'll need this in time for summer.

6. Pretty Pink

There will always be room for pink in our closets. It's bright, fun, and can make any outfit feel brand new again. My T-shirt-and-jeans combination is not so boring when I add a pink handbag.
