We won't blame you if you've started to live-Polyvore your holiday outfits for the socially-packed season that is Christmas, and being the sartorial enablers that we are, we say: throw in a bag for good measure. Here we threw in three purses to take with you through this season's influx of company parties, dress-up dinners with friends, afternoon barbeques, and maybe even a December wedding in the mix. Holiday outfit-wise, the devil is in the details and we're hardpressed to think anything more season-ready than a chic bag to complete your look.
A Purse You'll Love Taking Out
FURLA Club Zip Around, price available upon request
Let's all accept that you'll be taking your purse out more than you want to when Christmas rolls around, whether it's for gift-shopping, picking up the tab on your nth cocktail binge, or showering your godchildren with cash money. Well, if you're gonna spend a lot, then might as well make the painful act look as pretty as possible. Store the crisp bills you've been keeping all year in a classic purse in nude.
We'd wear this with a solid white frock on Christmas eve.
A Gorgeous Shoulder Bag for All The Days of Christmas
FURLA Club Crossbody, price available upon request
If there's anything that can keep your holiday outfits looking interesting, it's with a good, versatile "It" bag—so while you busily switch from shindig to shinding checking off all the fashion personalities you wanna pull off (Glam Queen! Sexy Elf! Mrs. Santa in Vintage!), make your carry on the chic constant in your whirlwind of a Christmas wardrobe. As far as versatile bags are concerned, nothing beats a structured piece with its own statement look.
We'd wear this baby across the chest with a sequined top and frayed high-waist denim cutoffs from mom's closet.
Bonus: A Tiny Card Case As A Chic Gift Idea
If you're in to spread the love—and your impeccable taste in bags—to others, then a luxe credit card case is a noncommital yet equally useful addition to your loves ones' Christmas gift haul. Get one in a textured black finish, a novel shape, and gold hardware that ups the ante from the standard card organizer.
We'd bring it everywhere, inside a statement "It" bag.
