22 Party Bags That Carrie Bradshaw Would Be Proud to Own

Like shoes, and holidays and spa treatments, we believe that bags are something we can't have just one of. In fact, we find ourselves needing a "daytime" bag, a "nice" bag, an "I need to fit in my trainers, my entire makeup collection and a Kit Kat for emergencies" kind of bag, and, of course, a "going out" bag. It can often become a minefield. But what if we were to tell you those party bags you only purchase as the festive season draws closer can actually be incorporated into your everyday outfits, too? When autumn/winter 2018 has so many incredible bags on offer, there's no way we can justify saving them for last.

From Cult Gaia's new tasselled treat to the Shrimps showstopper that's been given the Midas touch, these are the 22 party bags you won't be able to save for the dance floor.

Offset a fancy bag with chunky trainers. 

Style sequins with sequins for a look that's anything but OTT. 

Finding a bag you forgot you had (and loved) the previous year or getting your hands on the one you've been saving up for are key moments. This is why we believe you should wear them with anything and at all times. That plain white T-shirt-and-mom-jeans combo you wear on repeat? Just add a sequin pouch bag. Opting for trainers and wide-leg trousers for off-duty style? Overhaul the whole look with a fancy feather number. See what we're saying is they work 24/7, so of course, they're suitable for nights out, festive season and anything Christmas party related, too.
