Forget minimalism.

High-street retailers like Zara and Mango are go-to destinations for pretty much all of your on-trend and budget friendly fashion needs. From flared jeans to fabulously ruffled tops and everything in between, these megastores have got it. It's easy to get lost on any popular retail giant's website, bookmarking item after item on your wish list as you make your way to the best-selling pieces before they sell out. It can become a stressful shopping situation, to say the least.

That's where we come in. As a team of fashion editors, we scour the sites of your favorite stores to find the Internet's hidden treasures to add to cart. Which is exactly what we were doing when we noticed a trend happening across the bags section of various online shopping platforms. While we're forever grateful to brands like Zara for being on-the-button with what's happening now, this selection of purses stood out because for an entirely different reason: they look like they could've come out of Josephine Baker's closet rather than off the latest runway. 

This resurgence of an early-20th-Century-era trend is not new. We've been seeing feather trims on party dresses that are fit for a flapper, '50s style circle skirts and retro cat-eye style sunglasses à la Audrey Hepburn, and we're thrilled to see this detailed, heavily-embellished style being added to the mix. Plus, with the blogosphere becoming saturated with basket bags, this eye-catching trend is one sure-fire way to help you stand out. Accessorize your way to a unique look by opting for a vintage-inspired, beaded handbag that's as delicate as it is unique. It may just barely fit your cell, but hey: we'd sacrifice the tech for the pearls, any day.
