Lately I have found myself drawn to embellished handbags. Jewels, pearls, and stud embellishments on handbags are a fun and easy way to add a touch of flair to any outfit. I must admit I have been wearing leggings and jeans with simple tee-shirts a lot more often than I have before, and wearing an embellished bag makes it appear that I have put a lot more thought into my look than I actually have. Real talk: my wardrobe has taken a backseat in 2020.
I have always had a soft spot for jewel adorned handbags, but I’ve been newly converted to loving pearl and studded bags as well. Embellished bags are my favorite way to add a punch of personality to my bags, and they look more elevated than some of my brighter printed handbags. Don't get me wrong, I still love bright and bold printed bags, but embellishments are accessories for your accessories, so naturally I am a major fan.
Dabbling in the world of embellished handbags can be tricky because it’s easy to go too far overboard and look garish. Although I like my handbags to stand out and be the main focus of what I’m wearing, I still want to look sophisticated rather than gauche. Below I've compiled my favorite handbags that I believe strike the ideal balance of embellished, yet tasteful.
Do you have a favorite embellished handbag?
