Their brass tone Annika clutch is the perfect example of that. Les Petit Jours also has some gorgeous structured, silver top handle bags, another bag trend for 2023.
For luxe for less, look no further than Lulu’s hot pink metallic mini handbag for under $40. Which checks off both the metallic bag trend and hot pink Barbiecore trend.

From the crystal bags to elevate any outfit, the oversized XL bags for toting my life and camera equipment around and these metallic bags just because they’re so darn pretty.
How to find the perfect metallic bag for you
Where do you even start on narrowing down the best metallic bags to get your hands on? I tend to start with the colors I’m missing in my closet or that I know I’ll get the most wear out of. For me that’s gold, silver or black. Then looking at shapes and designers I like. It’s also easier if you narrow down by how much you want to spend but when it comes to bags and shoes I tend to not be as restrained as when it comes to clothes as they get better cost per wear.
Shop the metallic bag trend
If ever a bag had the power to transform an outfit, its metallic and crystal bags. Suddenly a simple outfit takes on a whole new, glam life with anyone of these beauties.
I was torn between whether to get a metallic bag or crystal bag but ended up with a new silver crystal bag and pulling my gold Christian Louboutin bag and black sequin Tom Ford bag out of storage. So that I could jump on both of these 2022-2023 purse trends before the holiday season to get the most use out of them.
They’re both bags that can be worn to create a show-stopping look or add a glam touch to a minimalist outfit all Spring and Summer long. I know I’ll get the a ton of wear out of them over the holidays too.
