It’s imperative to have a good clutch or two in your wardrobe arsenal. They are easy to grab on the go and load up with a few essentials for a night (or an afternoon) on the town.
Clare V. is the queen of the clutch. Hers are often foldover, and the high-quality leathers and suedes are smooth as butter and smell divine. Seriously.
Rebecca Minkoff knows a thing or two about designing a great clutch, as well. Hers tend to favor an envelope shape, and I love the zipper detailing. Check out this Valentine’s Day special!
Looking for a “hybrid” clutch, that will do double duty as a shoulder bag if necessary? Vince Camuto has you covered. The chain can be seamlessly tucked into the bag when not in use and it can act as a true clutch.
Those looking for something unique and fun should appreciate the Instagram cult-favorite Cult Gaia. Made of bamboo and acrylic respectively, these see-thru clutches are constructed beautifully and come in many colors, and come with a dust bag that can serve as a liner.
