When it comes to maximum fun on a party night out you need a bag that can hold the essentials, not impede your moves on the dance floor and not change your look by going from sexy to school girl because you’ve had to sling your bag crossbody!
There is only one bag you can call upon to hold the bits to get you home at the end of the night and allow you to fling your arms in the air or in fact around someone’s neck;-) without being separated from your bag.
This bag is not for the faint hearted but the confident. If this bag was a person it would Claudia Winkleman – heaps of fun, smaller in size, fashion forward and no nonsense, all in one go. It is the clutch bag with a wrist strap. So for those of you who want to throw your arms in the air like you just don’t care, check out the selection below for this season’s parties…
Of course, the 15 bags below turn up the volume on a winter trend…but the best is left to last!
