Novelty Handbags – it’s a thing!

What’s that you’re carrying around? A unicorn? A cat? A gingerbread man?! Novelty handbags are officially a ‘thing’ and we are blaming loving New Look for this trend!

If you want to create an instant conversation when you walk into the pub this weekend, then carry one of these talking points! New Look is the place to head for the wackiest novelty handbags around. As well as the burgers, milkshakes and donuts that have been there since the summer, there are a whole load more heading your way for Christmas!

If full-on unicorn is really not your thing, but you still want novelty handbags, perhaps a glittery love heart from Floozie by FrostFrench might be more your thing?

We do love Louche at JOY’s clever Wuthering Heights high heels bag, don’t you? And if repetition is your thing, then Dorothy Perkins’ Going Out Out bag comes in two colourways.

As well as crazy Christmas bauble, snowmen and chocolate coin shapes, there are a few less, well, crazy novelty handbags out there; more slogan bags, which are nothing new.

Not entirely sure we’re overly in love with H&M’s Bad Girl bag – but if that’s what floats your boat. If not, there’s another cat – not as bonkers as the New Look fluffy cat clutch we featured in last week’s Weekly Wishlist, H&M’s cat face shoulder bag is kind of cute.

So, we’ll see you a bottle of champagne clutch, and raise you a chocolate bar with a bite out! What’s your favourite of our novelty handbags pick?
