There are plenty of ‘90s fashion trends we’d rather not revisit (bucket hats and combat pants come to mind). Beaded handbags, on the other hand, we’re more than happy to give another shot. After seeing these babies on the arms of street-style stars and Instagram influencers, we decided we had to have one. Here are nine of the best options available now.
This '90s Bag Trend Is About to Be Everywhere
The Antonia style from super-cool British brand Shrimps really started the beaded bag renaissance. Available in lots of colorways, it’s got a dainty silhouette and quirky details.
Not looking to shell out $520 for an itty-bitty bead bag? Check out Zara’s version, which is a fraction of the price without sacrificing any of the aesthetic.
Even if you’re not totally into the multicolored look, this NYC-based brand has a next-level supply of beaded bags to consider.
Susan Alexandra ($315)
Does this little guy hold much more than your phone and some spare change? No. Does that matter when it’s so damn cute? Also no.
Worn with an LBD and heels, this cute little pouch is an excellent evening option.
Tuck the strap into the bag and carry it as a clutch for twice the fun.
We’re not over our bucket bag obsession, we’re just mixing up our collection with a beaded version.
Not Impressed ($345)
In eight different colors, you can find this swingy tophandle in the dictionary under “statement-maker.”
Sachin & Babi ($595)
Oh hey, grandma chic.
