It’s official: beaded purses are the “it” bag of the year. From influencer social media feeds to fashion runways, the beaded bag trend has been making big waves — and we’re not mad about it!
After all, a beaded purse is the ultimate arm candy. They’re playful, eye-catching, and the perfect “little something” needed to elevate any outfit. Shop our favorite picks below.
Sweet As Can Be
Beaded bags were practically made to be paired with pastel hues and cute patterns like florals and hearts. Take this beaded crossbody bag: the pineapple print is quintessentially preppy, while the rainbow of pink, blue, yellow, and orange colors adds an extra dash of whimsy. Meanwhile, with this nifty beaded purse strap featuring colorful blooms, you can add a sweet retro touch to any bag you own.
Game Day Ready
You can never have enough clothing or accessories in your team’s colors — and that includes game day bags. This petite beaded pouch is the perfect size for stashing your essentials. Also available as a cute game day pouch with decorative stars! Choose from winning color combinations like purple and orange, red and black, and others. With these vibrant beaded bags, you can keep the rest of your outfit simple and let your accessories do the talking.
Beach days and beaded bags are a match made in heaven. A beaded coin purse featuring seashells, palms, lobsters, or other beachy motifs is the perfect way to bring some subtle seaside vibes to your look, no matter where in the world you may be. Similarly, this beach scene beaded pouch will have you dreaming of sandy shorelines and balmy breezes 24/7. These zippered bags are small enough to stash inside a larger purse, or you can carry them on their own to elevate your outfit. Either of these bags would look super cute styled with a white blouse and light denim shorts or jeans.
Western icons like cowboy hats, boots, and saguaros will always have a place in our hearts — especially when they come with a side of glitz and glam. This beaded pink “y’all” bag with rhinestones is the definition of iconic. And this rodeo hat beaded pouch would make such a fun gift for all the girls attending a bachelorette or birthday weekend getaway. Yee-haw!
Night On The Town
What’s the thing we love most about beaded bags? There truly is a bag to suit every style. While beaded purses often do feel playful and vibrant — making them perfect for casual outings and daytime wear — they can be just as appropriate for a night on the town. Take this beaded clutch bag: with the black and gold color scheme, it’s ready to be paired with a little black dress and a bold red lip. And we can’t get over this bubbly beaded crossbody by Mary Frances. You’ll be the life of the party when you walk through the door with this bag draped over your shoulder!
