Got a formal work dinner, a grand social event or a big wedding? Choosing the right accessories for a black-tie event is critical! The right handbag can take your look from pedestrian to black-tie chic.
Keep it small
Large oversized bags have no place at formal events. Carry a wallet, wristlet or clutch to fit your black-tie dress code. The right evening bag will have compartments for your credit cards, lipstick and phones, but don’t overstuff your evening bag just because you can. Opt for miniature versions of your powder, mascara and lipstick. The key is sticking to the minimum! We like the Kate Studded Wristlet because of its size, flexibility, and great visual appeal. Hint – it’s also got a matching mini handbag, in case you want the set! The Kate Mini Studded Handbag is one of our most favorite mini handbags!! It totally reminds us of the Michael Kors Selma bag, or this Valentino bag without the huge pricetag.
Bag aficionados are always on the lookout for the latest trends, and where better to start than with the stars we all love so much. Hollywood has always been a great place for inspiration, so here’s a look at styles making waves in celebrity circles.
Tis the season to be jolly…so why stick to that plain black or brown handbag? Old trusty will get its time in the sun again soon, but the holidays call for something fun. Take the holiday spirit up a notch with a lovely festive handbag.
Making the right impression at office parties is almost as important as the work you put in 9 to 5. And poor accessorizing can be a recipe for disaster. To move up the ladder, you might well need to move up on the style stakes as well. Take time to pick out an appropriate outfit and make sure you have the right shoes and most important – the right bag, to match.
A holiday tradition that’s become all the rage is the Ugly Sweater Party. So how do you up the tacky in your outfit for the next Ugly Sweater bash? Why, with an utterly ugly bag of course. We all have some particularly horrendous oddities at the back of wardrobe and this is the perfect time to air them.
