Every band that goes for the gusto when it comes to sequins makes a misstep here and there; the line between chic and tacky is so precarious when it comes to a material as shiny and in-your-face as sequins, and the statistical probability of an occasional screw-up is high when you make as many paillette-covered bags as Coach does. Luckily for all of us, the Coach Poppy Sequin Mini Field Bag isn’t a mistake at all.
The best part of this bag is obvious: the subtle color is much more interesting and delicate than what we usually see when sequins are involved, and that makes all the difference. It shifts between light silver and baby blue seamlessly, and I’m sure it would be even more impressive in the light. Silver leather trim and dark hardware keep the bag grounded and useable as a casual piece, and for someone with an eccentric personal style, I could see this bag working on both a casual weekend and a night out. Buy through Nordstrom for $228.
