A jewel-toned dress demands an equally luxe-looking combo for your digits. This woven gold leather bag twinkles like a treasure and looks so rich with an amethyst polish. With this duo, you don’t need too much else for accessories.
Plan for a debaucherous night with a clutch that makes your intentions clear. Olympia Le-Tan’s book-based bag shows that you have literary leanings, even if the content is salacious. Pair it with Louboutin’s signature red nail color and a slinky black dress.
A sophisticated soirée calls for more subdued accessories. This sleek leather clutch from Saint Laurent is an exaggerated classic that’s sure to attract eyes and go with nearly everything in your closet. Pair it with a pretty shell nail varnish for a fancy dinner date.
Black-tie affairs call for elevated accessories, and this Gucci bag is royally stunning. With its jeweled bee clasp and quilted leather, the Queen Margaret is ready for any red carpet. Exude that regalness to your fingertips with Guerlain’s gorgeous crimson nail color.
Headed to a concert this New Year’s Eve? You’ll want a handbag with a crossbody option—and probably some rockin’ embellishments like fringe and studs. This Rebecca Minkoff bag has it all covered. Finalize your look with an on-trend black polish, and perhaps a gold stripe for a bit more flair.
Even a casual New Year’s Eve requires a bit of sparkle to make it official. This KARA wristlet is a genius way to add some unique fun to an outfit. The bracelet handle allows it to dangle from your wrist, keeping your hands free for grabbing a round of drinks at the bar for your girls. A sweet pink nail leaves your look laid-back but flirty, if need be.
Elegance can also be fun. If anyone knows how to make it so, it’s Victoria Beckham. This ruby pouch encapsulates the posh British designer’s modern luxe aesthetic. Pair it with a lush teal nail color, and your hands will be a contemporary fashion statement all night long.
Going to a glitzy ball drop? You’ll want to carry something equally dazzling. This Whiting & Davis mesh and fringe bag checks all the party accessory boxes. Spruce up your tips with this amazing shade by JINSoon for a doubly fun finishing touch.
If champagne and ballgowns are on the agenda for NYE, go for glamour straight-up. This minaudière (pronounced me-noh-dee-yair) is a crystal-encrusted case for your essentials. Clasp it with fingers topped in Bubbles, the perfect shade for holding champagne.
If there was one fashion trend that dominated 2017, it was white accessories, especially shoes and handbags. Based on the spring 2018 runways, the white-out won’t be coming to an end anytime soon—and definitely not at midnight on December 31. Start 2018 with a clean slate, like this handy white clutch matched with this Naked nail polish.
