After the last two springs and summers, I can imagine that a lot of you are really sick of seeing bright color blocking. A yellow top, purple skirt and red shoes looked fresh in 2010, but now, it just looks a lot like everything we've already seen. In light of that, all of the neutral color blocked bags that have emerged lately seem like a breath of fresh air - a new, subtle take on a trend that's been anything but subtle.
Mixing neutrals also has its functional advantages. Not only is it easier to work a black-and-tan bag into a wardrobe than a cobalt-and-green one, but a neutral bag has a longer potential lifespan than a non-neutral one, particularly when you're dealing with a bold trend like color blocking. Neutrals, even light ones, aren't beholden to a particular fashion season or outdoor temperature, so these bags are perfect for seasonal transitions, in addition to being a strong closet staple for years to come. We've rounded up some of your best neutral color blocked options, from a little under $300 to a little over $3000, after the jump.
