Hello my lovelies! If you’re anything like me, you don’t like to switch out your purse every single day. I’m extremely fond of versatility. As much as I love to match my bags to my outfits as evident through my blog, so often when I’m running out the door I’m looking for that everyday staple handbag. I only can hope that the bag I was wearing the day before matches my outfit for the day. That’s where the importance of having a neutral color handbag comes in. I’m definitely a fan of black handbags, but I find tan to be even more versatile. Today I’m sharing why I think tan is the only color handbag you’ll ever need!
1. Tan is neutral and goes with everything.
An everyday handbag definitely has to match everything. And I mean everything. Often I have to change out even my black handbags because it’s too dark or clashes with the browns or navy blues I’m wearing. That’s why I rely on a tan bag to be my favorite neutral. I definitely get the most use out of my tan handbags and this one from Nicole Lee has not let me down so far! I’ve already been able to wear it for a straight week with no wardrobe malfunctions. 🙂
2. Tan works all year round.
I love that tan is seasonless and looks great no matter the time of year. I happen to have more than one tan handbag, so for me it’s fun to bring out the lighter one in the spring and the slightly darker taupe color in the fall. No matter the season, I’m sure your shade of tan will look perfect with your outfit!
3. There are many different shades of tan.
With as many different shades of tan that there are, how can you be certain to choose the right one? Well, the truth is my friends, there is no right or wrong answer to this. Finding the perfect color tan can be difficult, but I suggest looking at your closet to figure out what shade will match the most items that you own. Do you have a lot of pastels or jewel tones? Do you lean towards autumn colors with yellow under hues? Knowing what you have the most of in your wardrobe, you’ll be able to determine the best shade for your personal style.
Because you’ll wear it more, it’s definitely OK to spend more money on it. Spending more on a neutral handbag than you would a colored crossbody or printed clutch is worth the splurge. I’d love to hear, do you have a tan handbag that you love or are you still looking for the perfect one?
