Turquoise is one of the “it” colours this season, so if you fancy a turquoise handbag, stock up in the next six months. But turquoise is not the only option in blue handbags. Think cobalt, teal, ink blue and royal blue as well. Dark blue bags look great with jeans because they pick up the colour of denim. Bright turquoise bags look fabulous with white, apple green, yellow, rich purple, coral and tomato red. Teal bags look amazing with muted reds, chartreuse, dark purple and earth tones.

I have a three year old, dark cobalt blue patent snake skin handbag which I like to wear with black, white and turquoise ensembles. But really, as long as I wear dark blue jeans or a denim jacket, my blue bag works with the outfit.  It took me a little while to get used to pairing a dark blue bag with outfits, but as soon as I got my head around it I was smitten with the look. In many instances, my dark blue handbag has become my “black” bag.

The addition of a new handbag makes existing outfits look and feel new. The power of accessories knows no bounds. So who’s liking the idea of a blue hued handbag?
