I agree that green can be very good too. I've seen bags in patterns made of different colored leathers, say brown, black, tan, and white I can't find an example at the moment and though I've never owned one, they always seemed like a safe bet for matching almost anything. I find that a camel color goes great with pretty much anything you wear.
But your concern about changing over purses is familiar, until I realized that I can just unzip and dump everything in one fell swoop. I don't need to place things in my purse delicately This realization means I am much more likely to switch my bag up. I keep a couple in our mud room for exactly this purpose. A muted metallic like not-too-shiny pewter works well that pic isn't the best example but it's all I had time to find.
I also second grey. Things like pens and tissues, I just keep in every bag, so I never have to transfer anything. Khaki would go with navy, red, brown AND black. Really, I think you could make do with a "summer" purse in a light shade, like the khaki, and a "winter" purse in black or grey.
And keep the red purse just for fun, for when you want to stand out! I have two purses that I use, depending on my mood. They both go with everything. One is a cream colored leather hobo and the other is a larger gold tote. I especially love using the gold one--it adds a great pop to any outfit and never clashes. I'm also chiming in on gray. Gray forever and always.
I switch purses around too, but I try to keep the amount of Essential Stuff to a minimum and I know exactly what needs to be transferred each time. Of everything I use the small pink one the most and the wristlet; I don't worry about it clashing as it's five inches long.
The terracotta color you linked to looks very lovely and I shouldn't imagine anyone really scoffing at it being worn with red? Seriously considering a gray purse next after all of these comments I think of purses as statement pieces so for me I gravitate to something kicky that makes me happy, since I have to see it all the time I'm like this with coats too.
I definitely felt more fashionable both inside, because it makes you feel exciting and bold - and outside, based on people's reactions once I stopped being afraid of color and pattern, and being too stuck on closely matching everything.
Black and brown and tan and so on, it's expected, it's often not memorable. I think we tend towards what we consider practical but when you look at magazines or fashion blogs or makeover shows, being too concerned with practicality is rather dull, like you're dressed to hide rather than shine; what's the point if it's not fun sometimes?
If you're not afraid of color then my favorite "neutrals" for the past little while have been bright yellow-green and cool pale blue; If you're not afraid of pattern, snakeskin is fun, and you can find snakeskin that has both black and brown mixed in. Taupe, grey, cognac, or camel. My favorite bag right now is a Longchamps Le Pliage in Graphite, which is a smoky grey. The handles are cognac leather. It goes with any color, and is awesome for everything from workdays to weekends.
I want another one in taupe! The two purses that I've been using most often are a dusty rose a little gray, and very pretty patent leather and mustard yellow leather.
My work bag that fits files is black leather. I've found that the grayish-pink dusty rose, whatever works with pretty much everything - primarily because I don't wear pink. I look for bags that have texture - that bag has pleats in it. I do think that nowadays pretty much anything goes and I'll agree with everyone prior who said gray is a great neutral color.
As are navy and purple. Personally I don't like the cognac color that you linked to, it strikes me as kind of old lady but if you like it, by all means get it! I use brown, but I have a couple of different browns and swap for size - but I mostly use a sort of caramel coloured one the most.
I think possibly you might consider whether the clothes you usually wear are cool or warm in tone, and choose a shade of a colour that is cool or warm to match. That said, purple especially duller purples are always versatile; I think pink reads as neutral, in the right circumstances; red is always awesome, if it's a good red; but I'm looking for green myself - either emerald, or hunter!
My purse is a statement and it's multicolored, so it matches everything - I'm definitely not a purse switcher. Before that, what I used to do was always get bags that had both black and brown in them, like a brown bag with black stitching or a black bag with cream in the pattern. Tommy Hilfger bags were particularly good at this. Pale gold is a great suggestion. It makes everything look a bit more glamorous, is a metallic neutral, and won't clash with anything.
But you don't wear yellow! I've never worried too much about the fashion police, but I went conservative for years just out of sheer laziness. Black or brown, it didn't really matter. I'd just find one I liked, use it til it wore out, then find another. I detest transferring all my crap. But a couple years ago, I got a bright red Tommy Hilfiger at Ross or TJ Maxx and started using it with everything, and it was so sassy I kid you not not a day went by that I didn't get a compliment on it, regardless of what I was wearing.
Now I've got a cute little Tignanello in this shade of green http: I guess my point is that gray or taupe is great if that's what you want, but whatever makes you happy is always the best choice. Even if it only comes in bright orange. I have an awesome beautiful bag that is like a dark bronzey leather with dark tealy green curlycue cut overlay and green edging. It holds everything and looks gorgeous doing it and I'm comfortable wearing it with anything.
I, too, have a very multicolored wardrobe. I call it my "Elven Princess Forest Adventure Bag" if anybody compliments me on it, which happens kind of more often than I was expecting.
I think it works because of a combination of things: I think as long as the construction is solid and probably something in a heavier weight so that it looks like it could stand up to winter, you'd be just fine with a white bag. I've been carrying my white satchel on a case-by-case basis. Of course, it hasn't gotten very cool here yet. I'm glad you asked this, Tracey! I've got a white clutch that I'm working on the nerve to try in winter, too! I'll try it if you will!
I think it all depend on how the outfit and outerwear is put together. White bags can go beautifully in the winter months or be jarringly out of place, depending on other aspects of the combination. I would like to have a white or cream bag I could use in winter.
Don't currently have one, but would love to find. I always thought of white handbags as summer only and so I never tried to look beyond color, to other elements of style and construction. For what I call my regular bag, for errands and shopping, I really don't want to be changing very often. After getting my pearl oyster -colored bag, and seeing how well it played off my darker clothing, I had an ahal moment--I had been way too focused on black bags, or maybe grays or burgundy for contrast, and of course, cognac haven't found "the one" but really, the much lighter colors are more interesting with my outfits.
I have been using my white bag in rotation matching what I am wearing.
