From wood to metallic, beaded bags of a Sixties vibe are everywhere this season…
At first glance, a beaded bag may seem slightly impractical. They’re usually quite small and built with a structure that gives no room for a bulky book on the commute. But, practicalities aside, they’re so cool that they can’t fail to enhance any ensemble.
Not only do they give a sartorial nod to the swinging Sixties, but they come in an array of designs, a playful colour palette and a long-lasting vintage appeal.
Here are some of the best beaded bags out there right now, that’ll act as the ideal accompaniment to any outfit from this season into the next.
