It’s Easy Being Green

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that my early birthday present to myself was a vintage Hermès Kelly Retourne 35 in vert foncé (dark green) gulliver leather. I was actually looking at a green Kelly last summer but funny enough, I think interior designer Chris Benz bought the one I was eyeing. When green became the color of the fall 2024 fashion shows, I decided to just take a look and see if there were any green Kellys available and found this one which is in impeccable shape for a bag that is 25 years old.

Right now, I’m wearing it with grey and tan but soon I’d pair with navy and in summer, I can use it with my white dresses. Since it’s pretty hard to find vintage green Kellys, I put together some of my favorite green bags that are available now.

N.B. There are a few green Kellys on resale sites right now but I think they are very overpriced.

This Medium Shoulder Bag is the closest color and style to my bag and the color is also called vert foncé.

I love this Small Leather Shoulder Bag with wrapped handle in color serpentine. It’s also available in black if green is not your color.

This dark green Small Textured Leather Bag also has a shoulder strap which makes it a great crossbody bag for travel.

This chic forest green Top Handle Leather Bag also has a crossbody strap when you want to go hands-free.

If you need a little more room, this Loewe Large Puzzle Tote Bag comes in a chic hunter green color.

A more reasonably priced forest green tote is this Everyday Italian Leather Tote.

If you like leaving the house with everything you own or want a travel bag, this dark green Suede Weekend Bag is beyond chic.

On the other end of the size spectrum is this emerald green Mini Loop Camera Bag which is also great for travel if you are a minimalist.

This vine colored Small Leather Satchel Bag is another great crossbody option.

This Medium Leather Crossbody Bag is a color the Brits would call petrol is also on sale.

This green Woven Shoulder Bag would add a fantastic pop of color to your neutral outfits.

This green Shoulder Bag looks designer but it’s on sale for only $39.99 right now.

This dark green Shoulder Bag is a more unexpected and unique shape.

This green Suede Bamboo Handle Bag is on sale and another 25% off with code EXTRA25.

This green suede Braided Leather Trimmed Bag is another great option for travel.

I also love this Medium Camera Crossbody Bag with Tassel as a crossbody bag for travel.

If you have an evening this spring, I love this green Crystal-Embellished Satin-Trimmed Velvet Clutch.

This green and black Satin Bucket Bag can be worn on the shoulder or crossbody if you like to dance at parties.

If you need inspiration on how to wear these green bags, don’t forget I recently wrote a post on how to Get a Head Start on Fall Color Trends.

Bon week-end !
