    Hey Venessa, l’m looking forward to an answer for the best , most versatile color, style of handbag. A recap of my closet – I wear a lot of jeans in white, gray, dark wash and black. My hair is white gray, or blonde if I color. I’m thinking of adding lowlights. Do you ever suggest a Louis Vuitton bag? Thank you for sharing!

      Hi Pat! Tan would be a great color for your everyday handbag because it will be a complimentary pop color against the white, grey, dark wash, and black. You could also do a medium grey bag, but tan would be more fun. Here is also a link to my post on the most versatile color handbag: http://vstyleblog.com/most-versatile-purse-color/

      Hope this helps! xoxo
