Every outfit needs a pretty bag to complete its look, and these #gorgeous bags are absolutely perfect for blowing away the relatives during Chinese New Year

The Spring Summer 2017 season gave us some beautiful bags just in time for Chinese New Year! Once again, we're being faced with the annual challenge of impressing out relatives during visiting, and we have a few #perfectoutfit ideas.

We've noticed that there are a few big bag trends this spring, and you need to take advantage of as many of them as possible. Will you bling it up with #trendy crystal embellishments, or go sweet and #oldschool with embroidery in traditional cultural patterns? There are a multitude of different bags to choose from, so here are our favourite bags to blow away the relatives.


One of our #favourites is the knapsack-flap bag from Gucci that kind of assaults the eyes at first, but it's truly a work of art. It's almost as if this bag was crafted specifically for Chinese New Year 2017; the striking gold, green and red embroidery and artful tiger buckle is super chic. When folded out, it's an ultra stylish knapsack! Wear this statement bag with something a little more simple, because it will certainly steal the show.

The first bag we featured in the video from Roger Vivier highlights embroidery crafted in a way that resembles lace. The effect is delicate and feminine. The metallic thread elevates this simple piece into something that will turn heads wherever you go.

Choose an embroidered bag when you feel like being bold yet subtle. Also, be sure to make sure that the colours match well with the rest of your outfit.

Fashionable and functional

Our next bag is the simple but beautiful sky blue piece from Valentino in the above video, which also comes in two other spring shades; pale yellow and pink. The new metallic microstuds add a little funk to an other feminine bag, and we think that the concertino accordion-esque pockets when opened are perfect for stashing any hong baos you may have. Once CNY is over, though, it's still perfect for those of us who have a hard time being organised #lol.

I have to admit that the Valentino lipstick cases stole the show show for us. They are so cute and functional, and it's especially exciting because it heralds Valentino's first foray into makeup. The case opens into a mirror, while the lipstick itself is pulled out of the cylindrical casing. While they haven't revealed the lipstick itself yet, they are only planning to produce one shade. We cannot wait to see what they'll come up with; this is one of the cutest ways we've seen a fashion house tastefully marry fashion and beauty. The cases will come in 25 different designs, but my personal favourite is the yellow case with Valentino's 60s panther motif.

Sparkly embellishments

It's time to shine and sparkle because this season is gonna #glow. Valentino's latest loveblade prints featuring heart and dagger motifs are so alluring, and its luxe levels go through the roof with those crystal and metallic embellishments.

Without a doubt, the pearl and crystal embellished clutch from Roger Vivier was the classiest bag we've seen. The simple style of the embellished buckle and the dangling pearl drops were elegant and tasteful. This particular bag is what you need to complete a classy and graceful evening outfit.

When you want to make a statement, crystal-embellished bags are the way to go. It's advisable to keep your outfit simple when toting extravagantly embellished bags. Try wearing less than two colours so as to not be a visual overload.
