When it comes to breaking down bag styles, the clutch is where the fun happens. It seems the smaller the bag, the bigger the impact – and the more you can let loose. But often times, the bummer that comes with spending too much on something fun kills the joy in the process. These clutches here will give you ample reason to party, while hitting all the current trends, from lively embellishments to alluring textures, to keep you at the top of your game, as always.
1. Graphic Fun: Tomas Maier Palm Tree Embroidered Clutch
Alright, this goes over the $100 mark, but it’s Tomas Maier so for the price, it’s a total steal. Besides, that little purple palm tree detail is beyond cute. On Farfetch for $144 (from $288).
2. Ethnic: Star Mela Estee Embroidered Canvas Clutch
Earthy embellishments will add whimsy to any look, and we can all use a little more whimsy in our lives. Intricately-stitched canvas and tassels will make them think you picked this up on vacation. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $91.
