When it comes to partywear, no dress is complete without the right evening bag to finish the look. This season we're all about making a big statement, but in a very small way. You may have noticed that there are so many eye-catching styles around at the moment from satin pouches to sequined chain-mail shoulder bags to tortoise shell trinkets. The one thing they all have in common is that they are mini.
If you’re planning to splurge and are looking for an investment piece, there are lots of new brands that you won't see anyone else with at your office party. Ca&lou, Carolina Santo Domingo and Wai Wai all have intricate detailing and special vintage-style elements, with abstract silhouettes.
Then around the £200-£300 mark, contemporary names such as Simon Miller, Ganni and Rejina Pyo are offering fun, playful evening bags. Ganni's beaded pouch has been an Instagram favourite this year.
