Every girl needs at least one good accessory (per outfit). More is always better, but we don't always have the time (or the options). I know some women are part of the 'Bigger is Better'-handbag-movement, and with everything we tend to carry with us, I fully understand. But I've always been a clutch person. A clutch has more impact, personality and is easier to play around with. You're not just slinging it over your shoulder, you're presenting it to the world in your hand.
Clutches can be boldly shaped, boldly coloured, boldly patterned or boldly textured. I love the idea of carrying a clutch in a contrasting colour to that of your outfit. Slightly oversized clutches give a sense of drama, and a slouchy one can add an element of casual chic. When carrying a clutch around, consider adding some interesting bangles or rings to your look or wearing an interesting shade of nail polish. This will only enhance the impact of your fabulous 'hand' bag. Here are some of my favourites:
