Here’s Where To Get Those Beaded Bags You See On The ‘Gram

For the fun and quirky you

We have seen them left and right since last year. Beaded bags are trending and they are everywhere! There’s no doubt that they stole the spotlight in the ’90s, but they’re back on our favourite bloggers and celebrities’ ensembles. Its revival is credited by Vogue Paris to Susan Alexandra, whose eponymous brand features designs of jewellery and purses that will entice the kid in you, including the multicoloured beaded bags.

Whether these beaded bags come in technicolour or just simple huge white pearls that are sewn together, it’s difficult to not be tempted to get one or two for ourselves. Itching to know where to find them? Here are some of the brands to check out.
