I don’t know about you but I own a lot of black purses, so a couple of years back when I spotted this cobalt blue Furla tote, I was instantly hooked. To this day, it’s still one of my favorite bags.
I like to pull it out every year about now when it’s dark and cold outside because it gives me a lift. It’s a great way to perk up during the dreary months and make my wardrobe come alive.
It looks especially good when I wear it with black. Black can really drain you but any bright blue like this such as Monaco Blue, sapphire blue etc, (or any other jewel tone) adds so much life.
If you like the idea of a blue purse, here are a couple of ideas for what to wear one with to look really wow.
Look # 1
I love this striking combination inspired by this Kate Winslett Vogue Cover. Black and gold paired with this deep blue give this casual outfit a regal feel.
To get the look pair black leggings with a long, flowing animal print tunic ( it should cover your bottom). Add sexy suede ankle booties and a gorgeous cuff.
Look # 2
If you like a more casual bag to carry to work almost like a briefcase then you will love this hip satchel. Again we’ve started with lots of black and some grey too and thrown in a few touches of blue to perk it up. Black with blue has been a popular trend. This saturated blue is an easy color to wear and looks very classy too, so no wonder fashionistas have been loving it.
Neutral jeans, in grey, plus a classic black blazer , flats and this blue purse make this look a winner. Notice how the flats are black and not blue. It would look would too matchy-matchy if they were the same color, making this outfit look dated.
