Just yesterday, a reader emailed me to ask if I had looked into the fact that Kate Middleton, Fashion Icon, always seems to be carrying a clutch.
Then today, I got my daily email from Who What Wear, spotlighting, of all things: THE COLORFUL CLUTCH.
I think not!
While the clutch is decidedly not mom-friendly, it is good to have one in your closet for very special, very child-free occasions.
And with that in mind, I present to you some affordable and cute clutches ... after the jump.
I love this bright green Sasha patent clutch (Banana Republic, $79.99 on sale), which also comes in yellow.
This Minaudiere Clutch (Nordstrom, $58) will give your look a nice pop of color as well.
On a budget? This Paco Menia de Bolonia Clutch (Endless, $31.72) is simple, stylish, and comes in a wide range of colors.
And I can't leave out this Mar Y Sol Raffia Clutch (Endless, $75.05).
This Carly Crocodile Clutch (Kitson, $48) is a chic option for those of you who are more fashion-forward.
Finally, I'm a little in love with this Marc Jacobs clutch (Shopbop, $82). So, so cute, and it looks designery and expensive.
Do you have a clutch? Do you carry it often or does it end up just sitting in your closet?
