20 evening bags to make after-dark extra special. By Christene Barberich & Piera Gelardi
Even though sorting through your holiday dresses and other special-occasion finery brings a little thrill to this time of year, it's more often the finishing touches that make a party outfit complete. That's why, one of our favorite little extras is definitely the perfect evening bag. Satin, chain straps, rhinestone closures, luxe "leathers", we love 'em all. And just like a pair of outstanding heels or the right bedazzled choker, every girl has her preferences.
Whether it's sleek and compact or oversized and daring, we've rounded up a colorful assortment of options that go from tiny dance-floor ideal to day-to-night perfection. And naturally, we've made sure the price tags fit every budget—because some luxuries, like Oak's $38 "croc" clutch, definitely don't have to break the party bank.
