How to style a red handbag? As I write in my book, The Chic Factor, and in my Style and Wardrobe Management course (see below), it is important to learn how to make the most of the most beautiful and quality clothing and accessories in our wardrobe.
This allows us to get the most out of our wardrobe and to make the most of our finest and most beautiful pieces. And it also requires a little creative effort that, in turn, leads to new ideas and outfits.
Otherwise, the risk is to focus only on 2 or 3 combinations for a single garment or accessory and always use those.
And this, inevitably, leads us to always want to buy something new, in the hope of creating that variety of looks that, in reality, we already have inside our closets.
But back to the initial question, how to combine a red bag to create new outfits. And, more specifically, this Gucci GG Marmont Small, which I gave to myself a few weeks ago and which is definitely one of the “highlights” of my autumn-winter shopping.

Obviously, when I took it I already had in mind some ways to match a red bag:
- with black and white looks
- on total white outfits (which I also use a lot in winter, read this post for more ideas)
- with navy blue
- on denim
- on total black as the only touch of color
- combined with garments and patterns that contain red
Then, from there, adopting the strategies explained in the Practical Course in Style and Wardrobe Management, I started to play a little.
One of the many outfits I’m creating these days to style my red bag in many ways is the one you see in these photos.
I chose camel as the outline color, a color I love a lot this season, and a lot of black, with the gold details of the jewelry and hardware of my Gucci GG Marmont red.
To break the effect of the color blocks, I added a scarf in a “leopard” pattern (in this post you find a lot more inspiration on how to style leopard print in your outfits. It’s in italian, but there are also a lot of pictures).
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Camel coat. Mine is pretty old, but you can find a wide choice of beautiful, high quality camel coats here (all by brands such as Max Mara, Marella etc., only without the tags)
Red earrings, gifted, very similar HERE
How to style a red handbag? I like to recall the color of this red Gucci GG Marmont with a small detail always red. In this case, a pair of chandelier earrings like THESE.
