Clutch Girl: our favorite clutches of the season
A New Yorker’s style evolves from necessity: this is a city of pedestrians and train commuters, of transitioning from day-to-night without a moment to spare. Layering is our truest art.
- Reconsider what’s inside - do you really need three mascaras, two mobile chargers and Fashion City Survival kit at all times? Truth is, you probably only need half of what’s inside – pull it all out & keep what’s necessary.
- Take Baby Steps - a clutch does not minauderie make. So if you’re considering the clutch conversion, start with something bigger like Bottega Veneta’s Woven Snakeskin/Cervo Clutch Bag or an Alexander McQueen De-Manta style before stocking up on the teeny-tinys. Some clutches are large enough to hold your wallet, iPad & sunnies.
- Think Day - Surprise! Clutches aren’t just for night; opt for a larger size with a thin messenger strap for day then conceal it in your interior pocket when you go out at night.
- Think Night – As New York’s days get shorter and our night’s evolve into a glittering stream of champagne toasts and kiss kiss on the cheek, our wardrobe naturally darkens in hue. Add spark to your look with a candy-colored clutch for instant energy and sophistication.
