The holiday season is fast approaching and it might be time to think about a festive handbag to brighten your look. Nothing screams holiday party time (and “disco fever”) like a handbag covered head to toe in sequins! The sequin “trend” — as some people might call it — is something that pops up around this time, year after year. It is a fun, bold look that might not tickle everyone’s fancy. But hey, it is the holiday season and there is nothing wrong with showing your holiday spirit! The only problem is that once the holiday season has passed, that sequin handbag might not look all that stylish anymore. So to keep things simple, I have selected some wallet-friendly choices that are easy on the eye as well (read: you won’t be blinding people with your style statement). And once the holiday season is over, you won’t feel too guilty about neglecting your sequined selection!
Big Buddha Studio Bag – $80
What I like about this style is that it is simple and understated. This provides the perfect counterbalance to all those glittery sequins. Plus the chain hardware adds a little edge to all that “fluff”. The detachable shoulder strap offers a bit of versatility too. Available in Blue (shown), Pink, Grey, or Black.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Lana Clutch - $128
Camo and sequins? Together? Yes! Surprisingly, it is a pretty awesome look! I love the mix of colors, very lady-like. This somewhat over-sized clutch features a simple flap closure. I just love the overall look and feel is this style! Available in Merlot Camo (shown) or Gold Camo.
Juicy Couture Northern Star Drawcord Tote – $128
There’s just something about Juicy that screams sequins. I love this particular style because it is large enough to carry during the day. The grosgrain ribbon strap and bow accent are undeniably feminine, perfect for the girlie-girl. Available in Silver, Purple (shown), or Black.
And if you have the urge to splurge just a little bit…
Kate Spade New York Felt Flurry Brette Bag – $325
The classic, structured shape and subtle black sequins make this bag perfect for day or night. Not a bad investment!
