Aside from one of my newest acquisitions (my red embossed croc Sac de Jour) my bag collection overall is pretty conservative. By that I mean it's made up of mostly neutral colors like black, white, navy, nude and grey. Purchasing a red bag did add a pop to my collection overall, but not in a crazy way as I have this belief (please tell me if you disagree!) that red works as an elevated neutral. I would love to add a teeny bit more color into my rotation, but until recently I wasn't quite sure how. Enter: colorblocking.
I was scrolling through some of my favorite websites when I noticed a small trend towards colorblocked bags. It's not quite everywhere yet, and it's definitely not a full-fledged trend, which is why it gets the title of a micro-trend. It's definitely one to be watched however as it's begun to pop up more and more. I like the idea overall, though I'm sure I wouldn't do it in a super colorful way. If I were to tap into this trend I'd likely get a bag with a neutral base and pops of color. Though the Wandler Hortensia bag is adorable—I want to eat it up!—the Marni Trunk Bag is high on my list of wants and would fit best in my wardrobe. What do you think of this micro-trend? Does it have the potential to make it big?
