Get the best of both worlds with a clutch handbag
Any fashionista would love to own accessories that serve a dual purpose. And for me handbags like the foldover convertible clutch handbag are one of the best buys. A friend was carrying this cute Miu Miu bag that moves from being a relatively simple purse to shoulder bag with the mere addition of a strap.
Clutches can be restrictive to formal events, so the addition of a strap or crossover belt gives it an instant makeover. You can use these clutch handbags as a clutch when you go to a formal event, but you can also you it as a small purse for a casual lunch.
Here are some different outfits to go with convertible clutch handbags to add that wow factor to your overall look:
Urban-chic and fashion-forward
If you are going for a formal cocktail or dinner party, then pair your clutch with a LBD or a neutral cocktail dress. But add that much needed pizzazz by picking a bold color for your clutch. Think contrasts like metallic gold, red or purple. Of course you can also reverse the look by going for bold and vibrant hued outfits paired with classic black clutch bags.
Casual and trendy
Flap soft leather purses make a sensible pick for casual wear. These trendy hobo bags can be carried on the shoulder or on the wrist like Vanessa Hudgens or Jessica Alba. It goes well with jeans, leggings and even flirty lace dresses.
If you want to carry clutch bags for casual events, go for matte colors with funky motifs or embellishments. Keep it classy and chic for formal occasions or you will end up looking like a fashion victim who’s trying too hard.
A clutch is an accessory that you can rarely go wrong with. Just follow the above tips and make a style statement!
