Hey everyone,

I am interested in a bolide 31 rigid and need help with picking out the color - always the hardest part for me. My wardrobe is mainly white, navy, black, grey. What color would you recommend? My local store has the following colors - orange, rouge tomate, Bleu hydra, and etoupe. Would also love to hear what color you think is stunning. No black please. Thank you.

Etoupe is a very gorgeous color & wearable all year long. It may take on a dfferent light in the bolide
I'd go in to H & just see what color sings to you as all the colors you mention are all good colors
& would work with your wardrobe colors nicely.

Since you wear neutrals I would recommend a pop color for you.
Hermes orange is always a wonderful classic and will look wonderful with the colors you wear.
Rouge tomate will also look great.
I would personally select orange.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I also saw there is a poppy orange on the website. What do you think poppy orange vs orange in a bolide?

I would personally love to get hold of the blue nuit if possible. But I'd go for etoupe if those are ur only choices

Blue nuit would be my first preference with your wardrobe

Then etoupe, blue hydra, rouge tomate, poppy orange, and lastly orange. Just my personal preference. Nothing against the classic orange. Unfortunately I cannot pull that color off well so it usually ranks down for me.
