While there are some beautiful designer clutches for sale, I usually pay less than $50 for mine. There are so many inexpensive, stylish bags on the market that you can find anything you need in a budget friendly price point. And I get so many compliments on my $20 ASOS clutches, there is little reason to spend more.
Claire Vivier recently breathed new life into the foldover clutch, but this Urban Outfitters knock-off is a good alternative. I also like this bone leather clutch with matte pewter hardware. This oversize Forever21 clutch is also nice, and I like the tonal studs on this blush-pink clutch.
I would carry any one of these clutches on a random Tuesday to add a bit of vintage elegance to my work wardrobe. I have most of the essentials doubled at work, so what I “need” to carry is not too much for a decent-sized clutch.
If it’s smaller clutches you are after, I love this box clutch with a panther on the clasp. It’s very Studio 54. I also like this neutral canvas and snakeskin frame clutch. Andt this amazing minaudiere in opalescent white with a gold accent is just too good to miss.
P.S. The only clutch that I found while researching this post that would convince me to break my under-$50 rule is this gorgeous sting-ray embossed leather clutch with a lucite clasp. Seriously, to die.
