Designer bags aren’t the only accessory people flock to, there are other trendy pieces that catch their attention. Over the summer, woven pieces took over from bags to hats, and shoes. But when the summer heat was replaced by gloomy clouds, another accessory emerged: beaded bags.
Whether you’re scrolling through social media or window shopping, you are sure to come across one. And they come in so many different styles too like small options and others that are larger with top handles.
There’s something about these bags that will remind you of being a kid again and carrying a toy bag. But, this time, it’s more sophisticated and chic. If you want one of your own, here are our picks.
Circle Lolita Bag
Add a cuteness factor to your outfit with this beaded bag from Circle. It has a white base with cherries hanging on it. It has two top handles that are long enough so you can carry it on your shoulder. The leaves are attached to the bag but the cherries aren’t so they will be swinging as you walk. Available online.
M&M by Ken Samudio Cherrie Clutch
