Crushed Velvet Mini Shopper

Velvet tops, dresses, and jumpsuits are all the rage, so why not top off your collection with this velvet mini shopper? Give your clutch the night off, because this bag was made for flashy parties and special events. It's large enough to fit your wallet, phone, and lip gloss, yet small enough that it won't look bulky at your side. Instead of a zip or button closure, simply cross one handle over the other and your items will stay put inside. ($490; shopbop.com)

The fanny pack has come out of retirement and is back with a modern twist—enter the leather belt bag. It's a mix between a fanny pack and a crossbody to create a convenient bag that looks stylish with any outfit and won't get in the way. It comes in four colors (brown, taupe, black, and blue) and can be worn around your waist or over your shoulder. ($48; freepeople.com)

Reversible Faux Leather Tote & Wristlet

Instead of buying the same handbag in two different colors (we've all done it), treat yourself to this reversible faux leather tote and matching wristlet. It's available in three color combos, but we are loving this mustard shade that transforms into a neutral taupe. It can fit a 15-inch laptop, making it perfect for the office, or you can use it as your everyday handbag and wallet to complete almost any look. ($49; nordstrom.com)
