Looking at crossbody bags to wear on vacation. I need a bag to match both brown and black shoes. Would you go with cement or faded aluminum?

Cement is more neutral, I'd say. I love the faded aluminum color, but I don't think it would go well with brown.

Thanks, it's for casual day wear and I'll be wearing both black and dark brown sandals so I want a color that would go with everything. Also looking at the electric blue or maybe even just a fun color and wear neutrals.

Sometimes a fun colour is great with whites/neutrals to brighten it up - I have a bright pink satchel (by The Cambridge Satchel Company) and it looks great with a 'plain' outfit to give it a nice edge :smile:

Yea I usually wear lots of color so typically stick to neutral bags. But this one is for vacations/outings and isn't terribly expensive so maybe I'll grab a bright color. It won't be an everyday bag. I like the blue since it has silver hardware but the red and hot pink look nice too. Thanks for the opinions!!!
