Let’s say you’ve got a big party coming up. You spend days, maybe even weeks, looking for the perfect cocktail dress or black tie gown to wear, you try on all different high heeled shoes to figure out which ones are the most comfortable to dance in, and you contemplate the necessity of a jacket, cardigan, or pashmina. However, usually the bag ends up being the last thing you think about, and it’s arguably one of the most important parts of any look.
These are our 16 favorite evening bags on the internet. You want your evening bag to be useful enough to actually hold your things, which is harder to find than you’d think.

Whatever you fancy, we’ve done the research to find it. We’re loving some classic black bags, fun sparkly pieces, and uniquely shaped bags. There’s also a clutch that’s been embroidered to look like a book, and our inner literature lovers are swooning. Keep on reading to shop our top styles, so you never get caught without an evening bag again.
