Neon is the new neutral, just ask Lauren Conrad…

Celebrities with colorful bags

Have you ever put together a nice outfit, and realized it was missing a pop of color? We often throw together cute outfits that look great, but sometimes lacking excitement. The best solution to this problem is a colorful statement bag. And this summer, statement bags are the perfect way to incorporate some bright color into your wardrobe. Tote bags, beach bags, purses, crossbody bags and clutches are all great ways to make your simple outfit pop.

The best way to utilize a bright colored statement bag is to pair it with a neutral outfit, so that the bag really stands out (hence the name “statement” bag). Follow Khloe Kardashian and Lauren Conrad’s example and wear an all-black ensemble, perfect for a night out or a day at work, and pair it with a neon clutch or bag. You will immediately look put together, while also looking cool and trendy.

If you want to try something different, pair your bright bag with a dress or skirt in a matching color, like Emmy Rossum did with her pink dress and red crossbody bag. Coordinating colors are a great way to create visual interest with your statement bag. You can also try color blocking by mixing a navy maxi dress with a neon yellow crossbody, or a hot pink skirt with a bright orange tote. Whatever you do with your bright bag, you are sure to be on trend this summer!
