It really surprises me how many young women don’t have a staple clutch or small crossbody in their closet. Listen here ladies, small bags are fantastic! Firstly, as I’m getting older I’m finding that I have more dressy social events on my calendar. My friends are getting married, I have charity events to attend, and yes, I still like to party. For these types of events, I don’t want to be carrying a large bag. And in some cases, a large bag is just not appropriate. Enter my best friend the clutch.
I have a couple that are my go-to’s, but I’m starting quite the collection of colors and textures. My navy Saint Laurent crossbody is obviously my favorite, but I have a neutral gold, a hot pink velvet, a classic black, and I love my leopard calf-hair folder clutch!
And here’s the thing… clutches just aren’t for formal events. They’re chic and playful for any time you just want to carry the essentials. I say go for it and give that tote or shoulder bag a rest. Check out some of my favorite small bags on the market right now!
