The perfect evening outfit just isn't complete without the perfect accessories. When it comes to the world of women's evening bags, there's a whole host of designs to choose from, whether you want a tiny box clutch evening bag for your lipstick and phone, or a sophisticated handbag to carry everything.
Essential evening bags and clutches
Elegant evenings come hand in hand with stylish evening bags. If you're one to change your outfit for every occasion, pick a neutral coloured evening clutch and keep it as a wardrobe staple. A classic black envelope design will match with everything from evening jumpsuits to designer dresses. A nude evening clutch bag will provide a sophisticated counterpart to any evening ensemble. Bold block colours are perfect if you like to make a statement, a pillar box red clutch is a feisty classic. If you prefer the hands-free approach, choose a minimalist design with a shoulder chain so you can wear it with ease.
Statement evening bags
Transform your occasion wear with statement evening bags. Metallics are huge this season, and they will help bring your evening bag to luxurious new heights. Lustrous golds and silvers work beautifully on solid box clutches and envelope bags. A ladies' evening bag in a statement pattern will give some life to a little black dress or a muted co-ord - go for a bright roll-top clutch, or a beaded vintage-inspired wristlet. Evenings are always perfectly suited to a bit of sparkle. Look out for glitter logos and shimmering details, or go full-out with a glitter covered shoulder bag. If you're really looking to make a statement, opt for a minaudière, an ornamental bag often adorned with gemstones and metal hardware.
