The festive season welcomes many a party on the agenda, but this time of the year also results in a lot of spending on entertainment and gifting. The last thing you need is to bring your night-out-on-the-town outfit down by not having a great bag to go with it.

A bag is one of those items that could make or break your look, especially if you’re keeping things simple elsewhere. In the same breath, it also need not be a splurge. Pick a standout colour, an interesting material or something with a hint of sparkle to seal the deal.

We’ve rounded up our edit of perfect party bags – from trending leopard print and neon, to mandatory sparkles and embellishments.
