These bags are a quick, one-accessory way to make your outfit pop. Add minimal (or no) jewelry, and make sure to master the under-arm hold so you can manage a champagne and communicative it’s-too-loud-I-can’t-hear-you hand gestures, too.
This Abas clutch ($198) looks vintage-inspired, and has lots of inner compartments for coins, cards and your ID.
