You’re going to a gala with a black tie dress code. You’re wearing a glamorous maxi dress, but still need to carry your essentials such as your smartphone. So you need a bag. But a bulky thing with your evening dress, that's a no-go. That’s why there is the clutch. In other words, the mini bag that lets you quietly smuggle things in without disturbing the dress code.
Why you need a clutch Some events ask for a clutch. Galas or business meetings. Metallic, white, black or violet - it does not matter. Always good: black pants, white shirt, silver shoes, and a black clutch. Nice side effect, now you have a reason to get a nice cover for your tablet since it no longer fits in your bag.
Always the right choice Clutches from, for example, Love Moschino, Philipp Plein or Ralph Lauren Collection are always the right choice. Try it. A mini dress? Match. A jumpsuit? Bingo. A nice suit? Do it! Here's a practical tip: put a clutch in your tote. Always good for when there are drinks after work.
