Fashion rules come and go but one certain style claim is that the right handbag will transform your look into a complete outfit. That’s even more true in the upcoming party season, when you might be tempted to leave the accessory picks for last minute shopping.
Quick fashion tip, you should always highlight a unique piece by selecting your outfit around it, otherwise it might pass unnoticed. However there are plenty of beautiful and versatile bag designs out there that will certainly apply to any personal style. Crystal adorned, studded, embossed texture or exotic leather, shiny metallics are all big trends this season, while irregular, humor-infused designs are getting a big share too.
“Le mot de jour” for the glamorous festivities ahead is the clutch purse, that, worn gracefully, will make a red-carpet look out of any dress. We have gathered 25 high-impact designs from chic wristlets, minimal envelopes to spectacular minaudières that will proudly stand among your wardrobe staples.
The shining: For a classic party look, a dazzling clutch bag will grab everyone’s attention. Golden hues bring the essential glam touch and they go with practical everything, as metallics are the new neutrals.
The brights: The simplified shape goes along perfect with a surprising hue, while a few designers bring deluxe details such as chain tassels or embossed leather texture to a colorful purse. More is more when you’re celebrating!
The brilliants: A jewel of a bag, the tiny minaudière requires a red-carpet worthy ensemble. Smooth surfaced, with opulent details or adorned with sparkling applique, these unique designs will make you the star of the night.
The wild bunch: If you’re looking to spice up your appearance this season look no further than animal prints with exotic reptile textures as first choice. A bold print matches a daring outfit: a bodycon dress and caged heels come to mind.
Heavy metal: For the urban girl it takes a medium-sized envelope purse with serious hardware to please her fashion sense. Studs, spikes and cool metal clasp detailing bring the required glam-rock vibe.
