Attention bag lovers: There’s a new purse in town. And it’s quickly becoming the latest cult accessory for spring and summer. The nostalgic ’90s beaded bag is back. And our favorite street style stars, influencers, and fashion muses have already been donning the cheery and unique jeweled bags all over our Insta-feed.
The shiny beads, once reserved for special evenings out, have now meandered their way into daytime attire. And while perhaps not so practical, they are, however, ridiculously chic and add pizzazz to even the simplest jean-and-tee ensemble.
The return of the beaded handbag is predominantly thanks to the British brand Shrimps that launched its pearl-adorned Antonia bag in 2016. The best seller was promptly seen dangling from the arms of the fashion set and a plethora designers and fast fashion retailers have swiftly followed suit with cool, quirky, and unique iterations.
