Going Green: Here’s why you need a green handbag

Green color could be perfect to match your bag with your outfits. It's the color of life, it's elegant, sober and different. The green color simbolizes a nature style and status.

Black, brown and beige are the most common handbag colors for women. Why? Because they’re easy to match with a variety of outfits.


Sure, you’ll dust off a different colored bag from the back of your closet now and then. But usually just for a special occasion or to match a special outfit. (Recommended: Bags every woman should own)


We get it. It’s hard to know which colors contrast well with others. And you don’t want a loud or busy look. When it comes to leather handbags, though, there are certain colors—in gorgeous tones—that are both subtle and versatile.


One of those colors is green. More specifically, forest green.


Besides being the color of pastoral fantasies, it looks great with a dark outfit—like black or navy—without creating a strong contrast. Yet, it also works with warmer tones, patterns, and lighter textures, so it’s perfect for spring and summer. Just get in mine select the perfect bag for your body type.


Forest green doesn’t dominate. It’s not risky. It’s even, dare we say, interesting.


The symbolism of green

Green is the result of combining blue and yellow. That makes it a secondary color. Yet, from a psychological perspective, it feels like a primary color because of its prominence in nature and its symbolic status.


According to web design agency Bourne Creative, "Green, the color of life, renewal, nature and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility and environment. ...The color green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful and relaxing color for the human eye to view...

It is a natural choice in interior design as an ideal background or backdrop because we as humans are so used to seeing it everywhere."


Green, of course, also symbolizes success, health and security. In other words, it's a versatile color. And that, perhaps, is one of  the best reasons to incorporate it into your repertoire. A green leather handbag can add tranquility or audacity to your style, depending on the context.


Either way, it feels smart and elegant and is one of the best colors to use to break the endless black-brown-beige handbag cycle that women are forever caught in. 


Combos to try


A bucket bag is cool and casual. In a soft forest green, it becomes a statement.


Paired with a salmon-toned outfit, it becomes what Town & County magazine calls 'the best color combination ever' and might even make you the “happiest person on the planet.”


Paired with an autumn palette, like brick colors, makes for an equally stunning combo with a more toned-down appeal.


Paired with prints and textures creates an even more complex style that blends effortlessly with green.


Green and navy work especially nicely together if you're going for an elegant, sober look. That makes it perfect for the office or work-related events. Our TIV handbag, in forest green, strikes that perfect professional tone. Its shape is clean and unpretentious. Its color adds that indelible green allure.


For a more casual look, our beautiful VINT is also available in forest green. It pairs beautifully with jeans and a black shirt. Depending on the season, you can experiment with different colored outfits or add an edge with an interesting pair of shoes. You can also go for the ultimate urban look with a pair of trendy sneakers.

Meanwhile, a monochromatic style, consisting mainly of black and whites pieces, looks incredible with our VITA bag in forest green. The bag becomes the highlight, the feature that brings flair to an understated look. Keep in mind that for it to work, you should follow a simple rule: the lighter your clothes, the smaller your bag should be. And, of course, smaller bags are usually preferable for the evening.


So, stop playing it safe. Bring some green to your look. Or should we say, bring some life to your look!
