A clutch doesn’t have to be all diamanté and satin, only for fancy occasions or wedding dinners. Think of it as a pouch that’s a hold-all for your belongings—an oversized version which may resemble a bottomless pit for all your odds and ends, or a small clutch with just enough space for the essentials. They’re also easy to throw into your work bag and can contain all you need for lunch—wallet, access card, packet of tissue, and your make-up must-haves. They’re also great for upping the style quotient: go for a bold colour or a quirky pattern to add some pop to an outfit, or play with textures in a neutral colour to seamlessly incorporate a clutch into your outfit. As an added bonus you’ll be ready for any spontaneous after work events, or an impromptu dinner date with the girlfriends.
