ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Glitz Is In The Bag

Michael Kors once said, “I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” So, why not punctuate your outfit with a little bit of sparkle?

Despite what you may think, designers are going against the grain of norm-core in their ready-to-wear apparel with head-to-toe sequins. The fall 2015 collections of Rodarte, Loewe and others glimmer more than the ball in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Don’t worry, there is still room for your favorite white T-shirt, but next time you walk out the door, you may want to swap your black satchel for a sequined bucket tote.

This Fashionista dazzled like a starlet with her gold bucket tote carrying her teacup poodle.

“He’s my favorite accessory,” she said.

On a scale of Eva Chen to Liberace, this ensemble is a Taylor Swift—glitter every so often, but not to the point of excess. Her basic denim and nude ballet flats balanced the bag well for daytime, while her soft cream blouse fell beautifully next to the gold hue of the tote.

While we can all agree that her poodle sure is cute, we also want to know where she got that bag. Whether you will want to shimmer on Christmas Eve or balance the tote with some basics for a little daytime shopping, this accessory deserves a spot in your closet for those occasions when you want to twinkle.

How To: Are you ready to color outside the lines of norm-core dressing? If so, then a sequined handbag should be perfect for you. Model your next cool-weather look after this Fashionista with a cream blouse or sweater and a chic pair of skinny jeans. If anything, it will definitely earn you lots of complements during holiday parties
