16 Sparkling Statement Bags You’ll Want to Wear With Everything

If the Barbie movie taught us anything, it’s that a bag covered in glitter, sequins, or embellishments isn’t a special occasion accessory. It’s actually something worthy of your everyday wardrobe.

NYC-based stylist Kara Erwin tells us that a sparkly bag “really just adds a lot of positive energy to a look. Sparkles are always uplifting and spark creativity—a key element to making any outfit more fun.” But a sparkly bag isn’t just fun, it’s also powerful. Maybe you don’t want to be seen wearing your standard jeans and T-shirt after running errands. Just add a bag with a bedazzled handle, and suddenly, the casual look is dressed up enough for happy hour with friends.

Don’t worry if you lean more minimalist than maximalist, either.

“Pairing a minimalist look with a maximalist bag is like adding the special topping to an already favorite flavor of ice cream,” says Erwin.

Adding a bold statement bag is a great way to infuse personality into a look that’s otherwise fairly classic. If you’re unsure where to start your search for the perfect option, Erwin recommends looking to Paco Rabanne, Cult Gaia, or Marc Jacobs first. All you need to do is find a sparkling statement your inner child would be proud of, and we guarantee you’ll soon find yourself looking for excuses to wear it with everything.
