Pouch bags for women are popular accessories right now. Pouches are simple and sleek, but can still pack a punch in the style stakes. Ditch the oversized handbag and streamline your essentials to fit in a compact and oh-so-stylish pouch. Take a look at a few stylish pouch bags for women, below.
Basic black pouch bags for women are a very versatile option. This sleek and structured pouch by Alexander Wang has a very contemporary design and can be worn during the day or dressed up at night. It is quite pricey at around $350, but you can find similar, more affordable metal-tipped pouches and clutches at stores like ASOS.
Polka dot patterns seem to be everywhere right now so why not add one to your outfit in the form of a cute pouch? Comme des Garçons do a fantastic polka dot pouch that is available in either a grey or black colourway. They’ll set you back around $160 so if you’re on a budget, check out Fossil and The Limited for some super cute polka dot pouches.
A simple way to add some colour to your look is with a brightly coloured pouch. Choose one in any colour of the rainbow - the choice is entirely up to you. You can find block coloured pouches from designers such as Comme des Garçons to stores like American Apparel and ASOS (pictured here).
Will the fashion world ever tire of stud embellishments? It doesn’t seem like it. If you like your accessories on the edgy side of things, then a studded pouch might just be for you. This Valentino pouch is definitely at the higher end of the price range but you can find more affordable versions by Rebecca Minkoff and Steve Madden.
Two tone pouches and bags are quite fashionable at the moment. If you don’t have the money to fork out for a Prada pouch (and let’s face it, not many of us do), this Steve Madden number is a fresh and funky alternative. Team it with something as simple as jeans and a shirt during the daytime and a LBD at night.
Want to add a little glamour to your look? This season you can’t go wrong with crystal or bead embellishments. When it comes to pouches, it doesn’t have to be anything too over the top either. This pouch by 3.1 Phillip Lim features crystal embellishments that form a cute polka dot pattern. For something a bit more extravagant, check out Mawi for some glitter and crystal pouches.
Can’t get enough of graphic prints? Then add more to your wardrobe in the form of a printed pouch. This one by Mary Katrantzou features a colourful ‘sterling’ print. If you’re on a budget, look to stores like Urban Outfitters and Madewell for equally stylish printed pouches.
Glitter accessories seem to be everywhere right now! Add some glitz and glamour to your look with a glitter pouch. While most people would leave it strictly for the evening, try adding a glitter pouch to your everyday look for something a bit different. This one is by Cole Haan but there are a range of other glitter pouches from Nine West and Kate Spade that you could check out.
If you’re thinking of downsizing your handbag, then definitely give pouches a go. Whether you prefer compact and minimal designs or something a bit more eye-catching, there are pouches to suit all tastes. What do you think of these pouch bags?
