Metallics seem like they are still in, although I like looking, I don't think it's super practical. I am a very "safe" person when it comes to handbags, and usually buy classic colors. People have been obsessing over the "whiskey-colored" paddy on the forum, so maybe something similar to that color?
My gut instinct was to say oranges and rusty browns, but I think that's just because the fall lines were out the last time I really went shopping, so everything I looked at was brown . . .
That said, I think Amanda's right, ivory is the "it" color for this winter. Harsh bright whites are on the way out, warmer tones are in and I'm starting to see a lot more ivory and cream.
Aside from the seasonal trends, I think green is still a choice accessory color, as pink recedes back into obscurity.
Metallics are still popular, which totally baffles me. I remember a couple winters ago, when everything in the Kenneth Cole collection was metallic it just drove me nuts, and I thought "there's no way this is anything more than a flash in the pan trend" and, yet, they're still around. Of course, I should just shut up, since I got a metallic pink cell phone case from Japan last month. :shame:
