Party Accessories

The top sassy evening bags

Christmas is less than six weeks away and Christmas parties are already getting into swing. City venues are full every Friday and the tinsel is going up. Come December, nearly every corporate entity and charity will be inviting people to merry it up for the season.

We are going to cover the top party dresses in our style section. But never forget the importance of the accessories. A well matched bag can add sparkle to a plain LBD (Little Black Dress) and even turn a work outfit into a party outfit for those who can’t change between the desk and the dance floor.

As ever we have looked at styles and prices for all Sassistas – keeping to the ‘keep it classy’ principle.


                          The Reiss Beau evening clutch bag in berry. Understated and classy and can be teamed with black, blue, grey, silver or multicolour evening wear.

Sparkly but subtle Lola Multi Glitter Suede Clutch/shoulder bag from LK Bennett. Has inner compartments for organising make-up and money. 


Bournie Grosgrain Hard Case Clutch Bag by Dune in red, black, khaki or navy. Makes a statement but also forces you to minimise what you carry and avoids the bulging bag look (not Sassy!)


Another hard case bag – the LOVIE woven satin clutch bag from Ted Baker with a retro look and tassels for fun. Also has a long shoulder strap for when you need two hands. The classy black means you could also use this for pepping up a classy suit.




Turquoise clutch bag by Jacques Vert. This has a shoulder strap and pretty good room for ‘stuff’. The sassistas see this as one for pepping up either the LBD or a black work suit. With such a vibrant colour – make it the outfit accent and not part of a colour scheme. Team with bold turquoise necklace.



Ted Baker Edena Jacquard Clutch in black available at John Lewis. Again this needs to be the accent, but pick up one of the colours (silver, grey, gold or strong peach) for your shoes and you will look soooo put together.


Beautiful ice blue beads – Alex beaded and sequined clutch bag by Costelloe & Costelloe. Also in red, khaki and mauve. 


If designer is your bag, then this flap style with unusual but subtle beading is pure Prada.


We have chosen just a few gorgeous clutches. But there are hundreds out there and you can pick up interesting accent evening clutches for very little money. Probably worth it as it is hard to assess the quality of the metal work under the dim lights of a party or evening venue. However, if you want to invest, there are plenty of purse bags to take your money as well as hold it.

A few places you can browse for the unusual are:

Try Shopbop for embellished clutch bags. Amazon are great for very cheap and amazing beaded bags and unusual shapes – but we worried about how such beaded beauties were created for such very low prices unless there is a sweatshop arrangement. We urge you to consider this.
