Today,I was wondering to myself what colors in purses are generally considered classics or timeless.I love all the new S/S colors but will you still be able to wear any of them 5 years from now?

IMO black,brown,white/ivory,tan and red.

What do you think?

I think the brighter colors can be worn indefinitely as long as they're more muted, as in not overly saturated or acidic in tone.

I think Grey is the most amazing, timeless color. I personally don't own any black, brown or white bags, but I have 4 grey bags.

It's such a versatile color!

Any shade of brown and beige looks timeless. Also burgundy, red, grey and cream. I don't wear much black and don't own any black bag. I dread the all-black look.

I agree with everyone. Black, brown, red, cognac, grey, and wine. However I think bright color bags go in and out, so somewhere along the line, I think it's bound to come back again. That's why I have every color of the rainbow (or at least am trying to).

For me bright color will be in as long as I like to wear them. Adding bright colored purses to a classic,tailored outfit always works for me.
