When you go out this winter look around you, everyone (with any sense that is) will be carrying a clutch. The clutch is no longer something you have to literally clutch, thank goodness, but usually comes with a chain so you can sling it over your shoulder or dangle it from your wrist. Not only that but most modern clutches can be slipped into your tote during the day, to be brought out in the evening.
All you need to put in your clutch is your credit card, notes, lippy and tissues with enough room left over for your phone. This is the perfect well behaved evening bag, light enough to take everywhere with you, capacious enough to take everything you need on an evening out.
Unsurprisingly the most popular colours are black, embellished, beaded, quilted or otherwise, closely followed by gold and leopard prints. Choose red if you want to add a pop of colour to a little black dress, or play it safe with something that will go with absolutely everything. In any case, a black or metallic clutch has to be your first choice and the one you can take away with you because you don’t have to think twice about what it will go with.
Those that are disappearing extremely fast from the stores right now are Whistles stingray leather clutch, Reiss black beaded clutch and Coast’s embellished clutch. Grab those while you still can….. The others might just still be around at Christmas.
