What if you could own just one handbag? Perish the thought, I know. But think hypothetically for one moment about this. If you could only have one handbag, what color would you choose?
My co author Janna Beatty, who is a master at color, says:
“If the color of an accessory matches your natural coloring, it will automatically complement you…no matter what (other color/s) you are wearing.”
Okay, what does that mean? Let’s use handbags as an example. (Or if you read my blog two weeks ago, some of you may refer to your handbag as a purse.)

Last week I wrote about Queen Elizabeth’s black Launer handbag. Black remains a good neutral for the Queen, since her hair was once black. But now that her hair is white, an alternative might be this lighter-colored Launer.
Janna stresses the importance of choosing a handbag that is the color of the hair you have NOW. Because your bag goes with YOU, it will go with anything you wear. Works every time!
Yes, even for these ladies:
They have matched their bags to their outfits, which is certainly fine, but if the green-haired lady passed her bag to the gal to the right, the blue bag would work great with that blue ‘do’, too!
Once you find a bag that matches the color of your hair, you may decide it’s the only handbag you need…
