Just exactly how many of you feel lost if you aren’t carrying your basic essentials while going for a fun night out. How many of you wish that you could fit in more in those beautiful but very small clutches. Sometimes I wonder if the day bags that we carry are our mini suitcases. You have to take a peek inside my bag to see what all I carry. From my phone to my I pod, to my make up to my cheque books to my diary, everything has to fit in my bag or I will be so lost.
Therefore I am not very big on small dainty bags. For me the Bigger, the Better!!
Looks like my prayers are answered when I saw the oversized clutches or Maxi clutches as some call them are making a huge comeback this season. Ah! its such a welcome and utilitarian piece of accessory for people like me. Imagine trying to fit it my lipstick, gloss, phone, keys & not to forget my camera in a small clutch for the evening. Crazy huh!!
These clutches are so high on glam that be it day or night you can just use them to enhance your style and do away with those big shoulder bags once in a while and give those shoulders a break.
They fall under 3 categories
Victoria Beckham structured day clutch
Balenciaga large envelope outreamer 1000$
BCBGeneration Charlie envelope 78$
|ASOS Metallic envelope clutch 78$

2. Flat clutches
These do not have a flap or anything. Just a zipper. Imagine a pouch but only bigger and beautiful. They lean more towards the casual side but they look cool. Team it with a jeans & T and see how it works wonder with your style. Leopard prints are totally in and look super cool.

My Tip : If you don’t have a single oversized clutch go for the envelope clutch. It goes with a casual wear like a floral dress or jeans or shorts and it also goes with your evening wear like an LBD or trousers or anything. Get a big & bright one to make a statement.
Again there might be a whole lot available in various brands. Please look for these clutches when you go shopping next time and if you already possess one, its time to take them out and flaunt them.

Leaving you with this thought and lots of wishes for Holi.
Have a super and safe Holi my girls and yeah Happy Women’s day. Celebrate with style!!
