Guide to Evening Bags

Evening Bag : What is it?

Evening Bags

Evening bags are great for cocktail parties, weddings, balls, and proms. Usually made of delicate textiles such as felt, satin, silk, leather, crepe, and fawn, they come with fancy embellishments like crystals, beads, and precious stones. Evening bags are usually very compact -- just enough to accommodate small items like lipsticks, compacts, bills and loose change, credit cards, and keys.

Choosing Evening Bags (Buying tips)

Length: Choose an evening bag with a long strap for dancing or clubbing, so you can fling it over your shoulder while dancing. For cocktail parties, choose a clutch evening bag or one with a short shoulder strap.

Size: Look for an evening bag not larger than 8 x 8 inches. This size can already store a compact, a lipstick, credit cards, loose change, and keys. Anything bigger may look too bulky for formal occasions or parties.

Shape: Choose an evening bag in the traditional rectangular or round shape for formal functions. For fun evening parties, look for a bag with an unusual shape. Poof bags are acceptable.
