If you’re like most of us, you probably don’t have an extensive stash of sparkly little party clutches and evening bags at the ready. During 11 months of the year, that’s not such a big tragedy, but then December comes around and hits us like a ton of bricks with its seemingly endless stream of evening get-togethers. Office parties, family gatherings, that invitation from your weird neighbor that you accept because you think there will be good liquor. That’s not to mention the things you actually want to do with your friends, and all of this calls for party bag options. A girl’s gotta have options.

As we are wont to do, we did the dirty work of scouring Internet retailers for their best fete-ready handheld handbags, and we came up with 20 that will elevate outfits of all kinds. These bags start at $45 and range from traditional party options to the decidedly non-traditional, so there’s sure to be something below that will fit both your budget and personal style. Now you just have to get to work on those RSVPs.
