Japan-Ready Styles For Any Edgy Look


Planning a trendy outfit lineup? Don’t take off without these designer novelty bags. Fun, playful, and certainly unlike the others, these simple accessories make the biggest impacts on any look. For example, the Paco Rabanne fringe shoulder bag is not your usual bag. However, its edgy style is just as practical as any other shoulder bag. With the simple added touch of fringe, you can take any look from 0 to 100. Plus, these bags always set the tone for unique ensembles like the Chloé Rebecca sandals and Max Mara Faro denim midi dress.


However, if you find this too edgy, you can still rock fringe with the Dôen Pascalle pink purse. As one of the next bag trends, fringe adds a touch of texture to any basic look. So, if you’re on your trip and aren’t sure what to wear, reach for this one. While it may be pink, it sure does make a stylish statement. You can even pair it with the Christian Louboutin Mariza metallic mules and Self-Portrait boucle mini dress for a more feminine look. Although, you can rock these designer novelty bags day or night with pretty much anything.

Statement Designer Novelty Bags


If you’re in search of the more statement-making designer novelty bags, don’t go anywhere just yet. Fringe may be the next hit trend, but so are metallics and prints. We all know Balenciaga is known for their edge take on bags, and the Balenciaga Le Cagole metallic shoulder bag offers much more than edge. With its bright pink hue and cool-girl metallic touch, you really can’t go wrong with an accessory like this. Style it with the Blumarine jersey mini dress and Jimmy Choo Didi pointed pumps or throw it on at night—both work.


On the other hand, leopard isn’t going anywhere anytime soon with the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily leopard shoulder bag. This fun Kim Kardashian collab is worth your while—adding a touch of fierceness to any look. Plus, it’s a more practical approach to tackling the novelty trend. This statement bag looks best with the Reformation Elva leopard mini dress and Paris Texas croc slingback sandals. But again, these designer novelty bags really do go with everything and anything.
