My calendar has said December for a full week now, which means that there’s no more hiding – holiday parties are upon us. For some of you, they might have already started, but the truly glitzy stuff usually occurs closer to Christmas and New Year’s. Luckily for you, that means there’s still time to find the perfect little bag to carry to those parties if you don’t already have something appropriate in your closet.

Often, I find that a good party clutch is something to which women don’t treat themselves because they see it as impractical. Not every sparkly little evening bag has to break the bank, though, which is why we’ve chosen the product category for our latest edition of Save, Spend, Splurge.

Save


Stingray-embossed leather gives this bag a little bit of glimmer without going for a full-on sparkle. ASOS Faux Stingray Clutch, $118 via ASOS.

Spend


For those who want gobs of seasonal glitter without sacrificing quality, this sparkly clutch is all leather underneath. Anya Hindmarch Valerie Glitter Finish Leather Clutch, $595 via Net-a-Porter.

Splurge


Of course, when it comes to a sparkly evening bag, the ultimate will always be Judith Leiber. Judith Leiber Houston Pave Deco Clutch, $4995 via Neiman Marcus.

    Judging by the photo, the first one looks more expensive than its price. There are lots of little clutches out there that reasonably priced and can really make an evening or party outfit. I have a number of clutches and love them all.

    Very nice!

    The ASOS is very nice indeed! The Anya Hindmarch looks a bit too much like ‘Christmas’ – JMHO. The Judith Leiber is very classy. It is expensive, but you could carry it for many years.

    They’re all beautiful, but the Judith Leiber is gorgeous!

    The JL is very .. busy yet classy in a certain way and at that price I would be afraid to carry it out anywhere. For parties / nights out I prefer something nice but not too nice because sometimes… one has just a few too many martini’s and oops.

  • Sally

    Beautiful clutch options! Everyone needs one (or two or three!) for those upcoming holiday parties!

  • Lizzy

    I am in love with the Anya Hindmarch! It might be my Christmas present to myself…

    clutches are so beautiful but I’m afraid of losing them so I never get one. However, these might just change my mind. They’re too pretty
