Holiday Style Series: Pt. 1

By Abigail Padgett

Now that Halloween is over, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season and all of its glitz, glam, and fashion-forward thinking. From now until the end of the semester, I’ll be doing a series on how to stay stylishly well dressed throughout the holiday season, whether that be with a new pair of heels or even just a tasteful headpiece. Journey with me to the end of the semester (let’s hope we make it there), and by the time all of those fancy parties and dinners come around, you’ll be dressed to impress.

This week: small bag, big statement

Everyone loves a clutch that packs a punch. A little purse that pops or pulls the ensemble together. Not a bag that stands out in size, but in color or material. A bag that’s large enough to fit the essentials like a phone, a tube of lipstick and a wad of cash, but still small enough not to be bulky. So for those that are looking for some tote inspo, here ya go.
