As every woman knows only too well, the accessories you choose to complement your perfect outfit can negatively or positively impact on your enjoyment of the social occasion. Selecting uncomfortable shoes is just as unfortunate as going for the wrong style and size of evening bag.
To look and feel your party-ready best, choose the perfect clutch to match and complement your attire. The versatile, handy sized clutch is functional, practical and the ideal stylish bag for evening use. The compact clutch is perfectly contoured to provide all the room you need to stash your personal essentials like lippy, cash and keys. All you have to do is decide which style and design best suits your occasion and outfit.
For formal evenings and social occasions you’ll have less need to cart around the entire contents of your day bag. Something a little more petite and compact is all that you require. An oval, box or classic envelope
shaped clutch is perfectly proportioned to accommodate the bare essentials. Choose a clutch that perfectly complements your evening dress by considering colour, shape, size and embellishments.
When choosing a clutch bag it is not essential to exactly match the colour of the evening bag to the colour of your dress. In fact, choosing a decorative clutch bag design highlights the glamour of your outfit and creates a confident style statement. Therefore avoid choosing a chic black clutch if you are attending an event wearing a LBD
. Opt for a clutch that features embellishing sparkles, a glitter accent or contrasting bold and bright colour.
Bold & Dramatic
If your dress flaunts an eye-catching print or pattern a solid colour perfectly accentuates and complements the outfit. Choose a vibrant shade that matches one of the colours of the fabric of your dress, and select a clutch to polish off your look.
Shape & Size
The most popular and basic evening bag shape is rectangular or envelope
. This versatile shape offers the most generous compact size to stash your essentials. When it comes to choosing shape and size, exercise your personal preferences and select a clutch that displays personality, style and glamour. With so many shapes and designs to choose from you’ll easily find a clutch to perfectly complement every outfit in your wardrobe!
Materials & Embellishments
Unlike functional day bags, evening clutch bags are usually made from luxurious materials and decorated with gorgeous embellishments. Satin, silk, velvet and soft leather can be quilted, beaded, embroidered and encrusted with sequins, crystal diamantes, beads and glitter. If your outfit features sparkles or glitter choose a clutch that is adorned with similar shimmering detail.
Most clutch bags feature a removable strap that neatly tucks inside the bag when not in use. Although a strapless
clutch always looks the height of class and sophistication, the delicate chain strap is ideal for hands free use. Another option to consider is the versatile wristlet clutch, or bag. This slips over the wrist so that you don’t accidently leave your bag on the dance floor.
