The beaded bag is still this year’s must-have accessory.
You’d be forgiven to thinking that they’d been done to death. They re-emerged in 2018, when Shrimps brought back the beaded bag in the form of the Antonia and suddenly they exploded, dubbed as the year’s ‘it bag’.
Every high street brand from Zara to ASOS followed suit, backing the style as one of the key bags to be seen wearing.
If you thought they were over, I’ve got some good news for you; they’re going no where. Designer brands including Ganni, Cult Gaia and Vanina Le Cosmos are pushing their own iterations of the beaded bag, updating them for 2022.
From the runways of Paris to your Instagram feed, you can’t deny the eye-catching styles of beaded bags. You can find different finishes and designs, so there’s always a bag that fits your style.
They’re a playful touch to any outfit. You can go for bright pops of colour or sleek black beads, depending on your style. When picking a bag, the design can instantly transform a subdued outfit—the beads make a statement.
It’s also worth mentioning that regardless of trends, you should always wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and confident – so if you were wondering whether to go for it or not, take this as a sign to wear the bag.
Below, you’ll find our pick of the best beaded bags for your wardrobe. From designer options from Ganni, Cult Gaia and Staud, to more affordable high street styles at Zara, ASOS and Charles & Keith, there’s a beaded bag for every budget.
