Tired of Black? Here are Some Hermès Neutral Alternatives


Black bags are undeniably staples. And like the Little Black Dress, there are few things more iconic in the handbag world than the Little Black Bag. (Read: Little Black Bag: The Ultimate Versatility Bag.) Black works with almost anything because it’s so versatile. Whether you’re wearing black, pastels, metallics, or bold primary colors, it’s almost impossible to go wrong with a trusty black bag. But sometimes black gets a little, well, tiring.

This is why variety is nice. But if you’re in the market for another versatile bag, you may be looking for a color that can have a similar effect as black. Something that may be neutral, or easily pair with your outfit, or is even just a classic fashionable color. With the brand’s whole array of colors, Hermès is the place to look for inspiration. So let’s take a look at some color groups as alternative to black, shall we?
