Whether you’re having a low-key New Year’s or pulling out all the stops, chances are you’re going to be toting some around some much-needed essentials no matter what the location. Even on a normal night, “keys, phone, wallet and lip gloss” are a repeated mantra we chant to ourselves until we’re positive we have everything tucked away in our bag or clutch.
Seeing as NYE is a normal night out on crack, you’re going to need to sport everything from phone chargers to (gasp) even an extra pair of panties if that midnight kiss goes a little further than expected (naughty, naughty).
Cruise on through our slideshow of bags to get a handle on what you need to tote to ensure your last hurrah in 2011 looks just as stylish as your first walk of shame in 2012.
No matter where you're headed on Saturday, these bags will suit every outfit you could dream up!

We love the simple shape of this bag, but the awesome treatment to the leather makes it modern. Plus, it has a shoulder strap, which means you can twirl all you like.
