Pair evening purses and clutches with your dress and shoes
Prom handbags are among the most important outfit accessories for this big night. An evening bag is highly advisable for every prom attendee. However, you’ll need to find the right evening bag, the one that fits perfectly with your evening dress for prom.
Nowadays, most people are opting for small prom purses and clutches that go well with the prom outfit. Luckily, the marketplace offers a wide range of prom handbags. Let’s take an eye to the newest arrivals.
Evening purses and clutches
Since you will be dancing the night away in your beautiful dress, you certainly won’t need a backpack. Opt for an evening bag that is a little more sophisticated and delicate. So, your prom bag doesn’t need to be a large purse.
Instead browse stores for cute evening purses and clutches. Opt for a cute wallet or small purse that will be big enough to carry your cell phone, your ID, a bit of money if desired, and a stick of lip balm, gloss, or lipstick.
A good example is the clutch bag featured above. It is a very trendy model that features a peacock style. The peacock wings are embellished with false diamonds, which provide the clutch with a sparkling appearence. The closure consists of a magnetic snap, which ensures that your enclosed treasures are safe. It also comes with a strap that can be removed and measures 8″ x 2″ x 4″. As you can see it is not a big prom clutch, yet you can store many different accessories in it.
The many adorable evening purses and clutches sold by stores are made out of leather, PU, hard materials for cases, velvet, satin, etc.
Silver prom clutches
Silver prom clutches are among the most popular evening bags out there. This is surely because they are available in many different models and can be assorted with any kind of dress style and, above all, any color. Silver prom clutches are elegant and sophisticated, which makes them favorite accessories for a fun night out. They also make the perfect formal clutch/purse to be paired with a formal evening gown.
Lovely prom handbags
Prom handbags are also a good choice. These are very small, sometimes with a very slim shoulder strap that can be removed if you wish. Other models feature a handle so that you can hold them on your hand. They’re generally sequined and beaded, embellished with artificial rhinestones and crystals, are beautifully embroidered or feature some artsy design.
Their design can be kept as simple as just prom handbags made of satin with a simple 3D flower on them. Most of them come with inside pockets to store your accessories. These prom handbags can be purchased in different colors, even though some are only available in just one color.
Essentially, the whole idea behind evening purses and clutches for prom is making sure that they blend well with your clothes.
Wrist bags for parties
Ultra small (6″ wide), ultra cute, ultra trendy, the evening wrist bags hold your goods safely with their zipped closure. These can be found in different models and styles. The one above is beaded and can be ordered in gold or silver. The secret stach pocket is also a great alternative and you’re not forced to hide in your bra but can hold it on your arm. It offers room for your credit card, identity card, and even some pieces of jewelry. It comes in a nice laced design and three different colors.
How to make a personalized wrist bag for prom
Even though the list of evening purses and clutches for prom is long, you might find out that none of them suits your needs. A friend of mine came up with the best idea out there when she received a wrist pouch. She isn’t a sportive person and wondered what to do with that pouch. She turned this sports armband into the cutest wrist corsage. Here’s what you’ll need if you opt fo this solution:
Using the ribbon, create a lovely bow (make as many loops as you want). Glue it on the pooch. Glue some beads and rhinestones on the ribbon and the pouch, then the silk flowers. Add as many beads and stones as you want – make sure the decor turns into a real looking corsage. Allow to dry. You’re all set. This personalized wrist bag can be worn in all kinds of occasions: prom, graduation, christenings, weddings, etc.
