In these last few weeks before Christmas, I’m not only gathering recipe ideas, Christmas wishlists but also already planning my outfits for 4 dinner parties (when Christmas is only 2 days… ), 2 Christmas brunches and 1 after-Christmas chill day! But there is also the question… What type of Christmas bags do I need this year? Well, there is one for every occasion of course. I’ve listed them below so that’s one thing ticked of your Christmas preparations list!
The long weekend Christmas bags
Christmas is a family thing! That is one thing for sure. No matter how big or small your family is, whether they truly are your relatives or just a family of friends, with Christmas you always want to celebrate it together whenever you can. In my case, it will be a long weekend away to visit my family, friends and in-laws. Therefore I have chosen for the weekend bag! Perfect for all your Christmas dresses, heels, smaller Christmas bags, presents and some make-up…
The chic-dinner Christmas bags
What do you really need when you’re invited to a very fancy restaurant or at someone’s home for a chic Christmas dinner? Truly? I think I only need my keys and ID. You don’t have to worry about your phone, alright maybe just for some Instagram photos of beautiful plating and desserts. But apart from that, it is a time to put your phone away and spend some quality time with your fellow-guests! So think in terms of the size of the bag about a clutch; the DIY Chanel clutch or the DIY croco Christmas clutch of last years’ Christmas! Besides the carrier of your keys, it will also be a stylish addition to your outfit.
The home dinner Christmas bags
In my family, we’ve got the tradition everyone will make something for the diner. One year, you’re responsible for the amuses, the next for the starters, the main course and eventually for the desserts. The year after we start all over again… Since a whole turkey won’t fit in the Christmas clutch, the leather shopper is the bag to choose! Plenty of room for trays with sauces etcetera but still stylish compared to the big and bright coloured plastic shoppers, and reusable for the rest of your life.
The Swinging Shoulder Christmas bags
Besides Christmas, this one is the one also to keep in mind for the new year parties; the swinging shoulder bag. It’s a little bag the size of a clutch, but one you could wear over your shoulder. The perfect bag, you won’t leave behind on the bar while ordering the “next” round of drinks, in the coat check room or at the ladies room. Or am I the only one to whom this happens…?
So… after these options, do you already know which type of bag you will need this Christmas? Or do you maybe need all of them? I will continue with my Christmas preparations, but of course, stay tuned for much more Leather & Style posts.
