Clutch bags: they’re not just for night time any more, and here at Fashion Police HQ, we’re very pleased to hear it. Clutch bags rock our world: as well as being elegant to look at themselves, they force you to carry yourself more elegantly too, rather than hunching up under a heavy shoulder bag. True, they may not be as practical as other styles for daytime use, but for those days when you don’t have to lug around the kitchen sink with you, an oversized, daytime clutch will instantly smarten up your outfit. (Plus, if we cared about being practical, we’d be walking around in Crocs right now…)
Here’s Ashlee Simpson at the Cloverfield premiere last night, with a new hairdo, a chic pink coat and … and oversized clutch! On the right of the picture, meanwhile, we have Topshop’s Patent oversized clutch bag, £35, Fendi’s ‘Love Letter‘ oversized clucth, £560, and Steven by Steve Madden‘s oversized clutch, $125.06.
