Handbags don’t always have to be practical. In fact, sometimes they’re more fun when they’re all style and no storage space! As we all know, though, dresses, skirts, and pants for women rarely come with functional pockets. You still need a place to stash your phone and lipstick, right?
That’s why a good clutch is the perfect solution to the style/storage dilemma. They’re often the cherry on top of your outfit in terms of accessorizing but the perfect spot to keep the night-out essentials on standby.
There are lots of great clutches out there, so how do you choose the right one? Here are some of the most stylish clutches around to give you some inspiration.
Women’s Clutch Handbags: Most Stylish Options
From different materials to patterns and added detail, which is the best clutch for your style?
Got a little black dress or two in your closet? Accessories are an affordable and easy way to mix things up. By switching out your jewelry, heels, and handbag, you’ve got an entirely new outfit every time.
This velvet embroidered clutch is the perfect addition to a simple black dress or jumpsuit. It even comes with a gold chain so you can wear it crossbody when you need your hands free to make some moves toward the dancefloor or wear it more casually with some black jeans and a blazer.
If you’re after that easy-breezy boho chic look, embroidery and fringe combined is the way to go. Look out for pastel or neutral colors with a contrasting pattern and some fringe detail. You can mix and match a clutch like this with contrasting colors on a jumpsuit or pair it with pale jeans and a flowing top in the summer for a more casual look.
If you’re not into fringe but still want some texture to your clutch bag, a beaded option is always a winner. Beaded clutches can add some subtle style in a block color, but if you really want an eye-catching piece, look for a beaded clutch with stripe detailing to really spice things up.
Looking for a high-end classy addition to your outfit? You simply can’t go wrong with leather, especially when it comes to clutch bags. If you’ve got an outfit with lots of detail, a simple leather clutch in neutral tones works well. Leather doesn’t have to be plain; try a faux leather bag with a pattern detail or a tassel zip to add the finishing touch.
We love a good animal print, no matter whether it’s on accessories, dresses, or outerwear. So why not add it to a beaded clutch? If you’ve got a simple block color slip dress or jumpsuit, for example, a beaded leopard print clutch works with almost any color or neutral tone.
They also work for more casual outfits. Look out for an option with a crossbody chain so you can throw your leopard clutch over summer dresses or jeans and a graphic tee.
A Little Bit of Pink
Channel your inner Elle Woods with a little bit of pink in your clutch bag. You don’t have to go all-out pink, either. Try looking for options that combine pink as part of a pattern, for example.
You can also choose the shade of pink that best suits your personality and individual style. We love a nice pastel pink on an embroidered clutch to bring out that bohemian style. Incorporating color into your clutch options also makes them a little more versatile between formal or casual looks.
Metallic Beaded Fringe
Why choose only one type of detail for your clutch when you can show off multiple trends in one dazzling bag? Take this beaded metallic fringe clutch, for example. Is there a lot going on? Absolutely, but that’s what makes it a unique and eye-catching piece. Whether you pair a clutch like this with an edgy metal look or as the finishing touch on a relaxed bohemian maxi dress, you’re onto a winner. This particular clutch also comes with a detachable crossbody strap and a snap close on the envelope-style bag, and it is the perfect mid-size clutch at 11.5" X 7.5".
