Holiday party season has finally arrived. As we scramble to find the perfect dress to wear to each of the parties, we must also keep in mind that the accessories we choose are just as essential to perfecting our look. A fun pair of heels, jewelry that sparkles—sure, we all have those somewhere in our closet. But the perfect holiday party clutch? That’s where it gets tough.
When it comes to picking a bag to wear to a fancy holiday soiree, we have to begrudgingly declutter our everyday handbags and scale down our necessities to a mere smartphone, lipstick, and maybe a stick of chewing gum. As daunting of a task as it may seem, thankfully, there are some freakin’ adorable party clutches out there to make up for it. We rounded up 18 of our festive favorites that are guaranteed to get the party started and step up your outfit to a whole new level.
