Blame Miu Miu for the daytime sequin bag. Or if you love the concept as much as I personally do, give Miuccia some well-deserved credit! Her metallic messenger broke the mold of utilitarian bags, and now glam-genius duo Dolce & Gabbana have hopped on board the sequin train.
Their sequined leather tote, in a boxy, rectangular shape that is decidedly more grown-up than Miu Miu’s brighter crossbody, is similar to the house’s quintessential Miss Sicily bag. Smartly, the smaller shape and shoulder strap option lighten the mood. Chunky hardware and black leather also serve to juxtapose the high-shine finish of gunmetal glitz.
Sequins are known to pack a strong punch, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t ever see the sunshine. It’s best to keep your outfit simple, maybe even a little masculine, for day. But at night, go all out – this tote is the perfect glamour companion! On Net-a-Porter for $1,725.
Pair with: With a quick switch from flats to heels, your bag will carry you from day to night when it’s worn with Alice + Olivia‘s box pleated leather skirt. It’s in keeping with the spirit of the tote: sexy, flirty, fun, funky. On ShopBop for $396.
