The Shortlist: Five Beaded Bags Worth Crushing Over

If you’ve been spending some time perusing the profiles of the chicest Instagram It girls, then you might already know that the beaded bag is having a moment. Like, a big moment. And frankly, the trend took me by surprise, but I can see the reason behind the mania. Popularized, in large part, by British brand Shrimps, which took the blogosphere by storm with its faux-pearl boxy totes, the beaded bag is a playful addition to any outfit. It’s unfussy, a little childlike and just downright fun.

So either call up your grandmas to schedule a closet raiding session or treat yourself to one of these cool-kid handbags.
