The evening bag is officially back in style. There is a ton of chic small and beautifully formed handbags in stores; eye-catching miniatures really help pull an outfit together. Take your cue from this year’s Shrimps show where the focus was on playful beading.
Or, if you prefer something more dramatic, try an outré-embellished velvet pouch (in an unexpected shape), it will jazz up a classic little black dress. Conversation starters like Miuccia Prada’s artfully appliquéd satin bags and Attico’s feather-embellished clutches are real investments. Ideal for stowing your phone, card, lipstick and keys.
