There has been a stable general inclination towards all-white everything recently. first came the rampant white sneakers. In fact, I was inspired enough by my pal double-timing a pair between college casuals and work suits to get one myself, quickly having them muddied and soiled and vowing to never get a pair again.

Then came the all-white outfits courtesy of the K’s and H’s of the celeb set (not recommended for those of us with broad undersides. I speak from experience).

A easy white button-down has possibly been the only item of the color that survived in my closet without degenerating into the “before” picture of tide commercials (a couple of tiny gravy stains shouldn’t count, right?).

My point is, as much as we all adore the look of something in white, it’s not for those of us with a penchant for gravy, juice, or coffee and living somewhere with the smallest traces of dirt, grime, mud, rain, or arena. Basically, that includes everybody on planet Earth.

And yet, in defiance of this, the trend towards everything in white is well in place. Now, it’s understandable if you wouldn’t want to choose a posh leather jacket or a pair of Yeezys in white best away, but do white purses have the ability to satiate our desire for this particular color (or, well, a lack thereof)? I can already think of the looks of horror on your faces, and yes, on first thought (and probably on the second and third as well), white bags can seem like bad news. given that there is a real possibility of the white handles being stained from the sweat and oils on your hand literally just by holding the bag, “babying” takes on an entirely new implying when it concerns this shade. Plus, you can forget the idea of pairing it with denim. Or setting it on many surfaces. Or keeping it on a shelf even remotely in proximity to purses of any other color.

Therefore, if your reaction to “would you purchase a white purse” is to slowly back off, turn around and run as fast as you can in the opposite direction, I wouldn’t blame you. and yet, just picture the plain white button-down (or for you, sneaker-heads out there, the Air force 1 ’07). depending on how you style it, it can look casual or formal, bold and glamorous, or quiet and unassuming, and will always remain unfailingly stylish. If your purse could do that (and given that it isn’t yet another black bag), would you take the chance? Well, here are a few ways you can incorporate a white handbag into your wardrobe (and possibly even your daily rotation!):

Waterproof your bag

This thread does a terrific job of discussing and recommending valuable suggestions for maintaining your white purse (and pretty much any other purse). Still, we’re all many familiar with the basics – use moisturizer regularly, use waterproof and color-guard sprays, and don’t take it out in the rain. pro tip: refrain from using baby wipes as much as possible because they include oils that can stain your light-colored purse or glue much more dirt on it.

Pair outfits sensibly

We know that freakish color transfers aren’t uncommon in white or light-colored purses, but making a few conscious outfit choices really goes a long way, like substituting your dark denim with lighter-colored ones and remembering to not store them in a way that they touch other purses and/or prone-to-leaking-colors paraphernalia. Can white be an all-season color, then? ¡Absolutamente! It’ll compliment your floral summer dresses and winter season trench coats with gusto. ¿Prima? having a crisp white purse on an all-black fall ensemble is bound to generate excitement amidst a sea of monotonous black bags!

Invest in a “good” white purse

It’s probably a marketing ploy made by big brands, but there’s no doubt that purchasing designer does imply getting better quality, at least in certain cases. and just like the issue with suede that I pointed out here, white handbags are thought to be risky purchases. Hence, many people tend to buy, if at all, the fast-fashion, poorer quality versions, getting stuck in a vicious circle of blame and negativity. If you’re searching for a white purse that’s resilient and less likely to disintegrate, do your research. Unless you’re purchasing a white suede bag. then may God help you.

Don’t limit yourself to one type of leather. Or leather at all, for that matter

True, the most beautiful luscious white pebbled calfskin or lambskin is also the most delicate variety out there, and unless you plan to use it sparingly, it’s probably a good idea to steer clear of them for this color choice. On the other hand, this is one of those colors that’ll really fix up the look of other types of leather. A sharp white Prada Saffiano Tote, for example, is the striking embodiment of a “Power Bag” and a terrific complement to tuxedoes. A patent leather, wipe clean Louis Vuitton Alma Vernis in Blanc, on the other hand, is a glamorous blend of feMinity y estilo. ¿No te gustan los logotipos? ¡El epi noe en blanco es prácticamente indestructible! ¿Te apetece una solapa? ¡Un chanel blanco de cuero de caviar es un clásico resistente!

Dicho esto, ahora hay tan numerosos materiales diferentes en los que puedes obtener un bolso blanco que parece una pena limitarte al cuero. Longchamp o el nylon de Prada, Damier Azur de Louis Vuitton o el lienzo bordado de Chevron y Dior de Dior, ¡las opciones son prácticamente infinitas!

Cuando todo lo demás falla, todavía hay los profesionales

Y esa es otra razón por la que debe obtener su bolso blanco de una casa de moda de lujo: la bolsa MedSpa y/o los servicios de limpieza de las propias marcas, así como otros restauradores profesionales como la clínica de restauración y bolsos, podrían ser capaces de Restaurar su bolso blanco a su color original en el caso de manchas/daños que los remedios caseros no solucionarían.

Comprar un bolso blanco y realmente usarlo es una hazaña valiente. Y si tiene la paciencia y la capacidad de enfrentarse a uno y mantenerlo, es prácticamente lo suficientemente capaz como para lidiar con cualquier bolso. Aunque numerosas personas probablemente estarían en desacuerdo, diría que White está a la par con el rojo cuando se refiere a usarlas como tonos “neutrales”. Un bolso blanco bien mantenido señala elegancia, audacia y confianza y aún es sorprendentemente versátil. ¿Y el atractivo atemporal que no se limita a una temporada en particular? Esa es solo la cereza en la parte superior. Entonces, si estás aburrido de negro y bronceado y estás buscando un neutral increíble, ¡no olvides reconsiderar el blanco! Hasta entonces, estaré contento con mi maletín Himalaya Crocodile-Blooklike que me permite fingir convenientemente que el derrame de café estaba “totalmente implicado para estar allí”.
