Who doesn’t like a good statement bag? They liven up an outfit, are a great (mostly functional) accessory, and add that little boost to your confidence.
Statement bags come in all shapes and sizes; even some that look like milk boxes, shaped as elephants or a huge pair of glittered lips!
But, we are looking more for something classy that can be worn out in public, something that you’d be proud to show off at a social event.
Here are 5 statement bags that would be an incredible addition to your closet, and a few ideas on how to build your look around them.
