15 Bags (And Reasons) To Go Completely Hands-Free This Party Season

If you foresee yourself spending most of the night by the buffet table, you'll be glad to have one of these ultra-slick yet surprisingly practical micros with you.

If you think about it, getting dressed for party season is something of an art that needs to be perfected. We want our lipsticks and we want to feast, so we need to find the perfect lip colour that will stay on until morning. We want to pile on the metallics and glitter on our eyes, but we don’t want to be held back by the transfers they leave under our eyes. We want to carry the tiniest of bags because nothing ruins a carefully selected party look than a big, clunky bag. Yet, we still want to be able to hold a canapé in one hand and champagne glass in the other – that means no clutches – and still have all our necessities on us. Ah, we always want our cake and eat it it too, don’t we?

As such, there truly is no party bag better than the hands-free bag, whether its something that allows you to hook your arm through at the very least, or better, wear it across your body. They have to be just right in size, look great and continue to be a part of your wardrobe after that New Year’s Eve party. Look, we’ve got nothing against clutch – if they come with a chain, you’re good – but unless your dinner party is a sit-down one, you’ll be grateful that you made a decision to go with a hands-free bag. We found the perfect one for the practical party goer, but in case you want something just a bit smaller, we’ve got 15 below – 15 reasons to go completely hands-free this par-tay season.
