Spring (Bag) Cleaning: 19 Bold Clutches to Try


Look through any set of street-style photos and you’ll notice most fashionable ladies tend to ditch the oversize purse in favor of a small, graphic clutch that contains just the essentials. And while you may not be jetting to shows and preening for the cameras, swapping out a heavy bag for a smaller pouch is still sound advice as the days warm. Consider it a form of spring cleaning, paring down all of the junk that accumulates in a large tote in favor of tightly edited collection of just the essentials. Take advantage of the sunny days and balmy temperatures by skipping heat-absorbing black in favor of bold hues, clean and crisp white, or reflective metallics. ASOS and Proenza Schouler both offer up silver folios that add shine to any outfit, seamlessly transitioning from work to cocktails. If you’re considering a splurge, a classic red pouch like the ones by Saint Laurent and Fendi will work year-round, justifying the investment. And for a cool conversation-starter, take Alexander Wang’s sleek white clutch from day into night and watch it glow in the dark. Click ahead to consider all of these and more.
