Currently Loving: Oversized Clutches

Clutches have typically been reserved for a night out and in years past were just big enough for one’s lipstick, credit card and cell phone. However, I am loving that clutches have been coming out to play in the daytime! Oversized clutches seem to be everywhere and though at first, I was a bit hesitant (a clutch that is too big is difficult to carry around comfortably), I eventually relented. It seems that softer leathers and fabrics are more manageable than structured styles when dealing with oversized clutches, but all of these styles are pretty darn fabulous. They are each the perfect complement to their respective ensembles.

{I love the color and detail, but at this size, I’d probably opt for a regular handbag. This can’t be easy to carry.}

{I love this fabulous, little ikat number. The pattern makes it quite versatile.}

{A little leopard goes a long way, so bags and shoes are the perfect way to add a little leopard to your outfit.}

{I must admit, I love a little sparkle!}

{I LOVE this look! The lines are classic, but the different textures make it modern and sexy.}

{Though not oversized, Olivia Palermo’s Lucite clutch is noteworthy, nonetheless.}

 

Are you into oversized clutches for day or do you prefer smaller versions for evening?

  1. I’m totally into the oversized clutches…perfect for day when I have to schlep around fabrics and samples along with my iPad to meet with clients…and transitions beautifully to night for a downtown vibe I love…Currently sporting a lot of vintage ones but American Apparel got some sweet stuff this season as well. Great shots!

  3. I think that really hot, but I would personally miss that strap when I’m juggling more than one thing at a time. Talking about that lucite one, did you see honestlywtf’s diy version??

  4. I love large cluthces ever since I saw a pic of my from the 80’s carry a large clutch that was more like the size of a tote I had been looking for a really cool one since I got hip to the trend. I found one that I’m really in love with the ones at http://www.chimaandrose.com.I‘m so excited about it that I wear it like every day! They are all different so you don’t have to worry about anyone have the same one you have.
