Next week is a big week for classical music aficionados: It's when both the SF Symphony and the SF Opera are hosting their opening nights galas. (September 3 for the former, and September 5 for the latter.) Whether you're going to the fancy soiree or later in the season, it's an opportune time to consider your evening bag lineup. Clutches and hideaway shoulder straps work best for evenings, but the parameters really stop there. Choose a pop of color or a clever shape to draw all eyes to you. Or, if understated elegance is more your speed, there are plenty of black options, too.
