In the past I always relegated clutches to the “evening bag” category. But as I get more playful with fashion I am realizing that clutches are great at any time of day!
I got this clutch from Nastygal and it quickly sold out – note: Nastygal seems to be perpetually offering 50% off of everything on their site (using code GET50) – however, I thought I’d offer up some of my suggestions for affordable clutches. My picks are at the bottom of this pot.
As soon as I saw the pinky/gold snakeskin of this clutch I knew I needed it in my life. I looove the pop of color and the box shape. It’s also super cool that it came with a shoulder strap ’cause sometimes we just need to go hands free! I suppose if there’s any con it’s that the metal shows fingerprints. But in my mind that’s no big deal.
Since I tend to err on the matchy-matchy side, I had to pair this bag with my fav sweater (currently about half price!). I am obsessed with anything peachy/salmony/pink. With a bold colored sweater and an attention grabbing clutch I felt it was best to go pretty simple with the rest of my look.
My jeans are pretty old, but I think this pair (use code COUNTDOWN to get 20% off thru 12/19) is just as cute! I really dig the minimal distressing. This pair is also so stylish (also 20% off with code GIFTNOW) and this one is a steal for under $30.
I still reach for this pair of block heeled pumps all the time. The pointed toe and nude color are soo good for lengthening the legs, while also being comfortable. Always important! There’s a reason they have such great reviews 😉
While smaller handbags like clutches are great anytime, they’re especially well suited for this time of year. All the parties and events just beg for a handbag that pops – and holds just enough.
What’s your go-to purse style?
