These glamorous formal bags for evening wear are impressive! It’s taken me a while, and perhaps a lot of randomly browsed photos from awards shows, to come around to the idea that a good formal wear outfit looks great when paired with appropriate accessories. A piece of jewelry can be good but not everyone likes to wear earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, or some combination thereof. A handbag is much more essential if you carry keys, phone, but sadly lack pockets. We’ll address the pockets issue some other time, on to the glitz and glamour!
