Clutches aren’t the most practical bag, but they certainly are the most fun to shop for. This little purse is not designed to be super practical. As long as it can hold your phone, your credit cards and some makeup for touch-ups, it’s GTG. It’s not like the backpack that you use to lug your laptop to and from work, which has to be big enough, durable enough and be in a color that you’re comfortable bringing everywhere. Because an evening clutch doesn’t have a long set of boxes to tick, your clutch can be impractical, loud and look ridiculously luxe. Have fun with it.
We rounded up the best fancy clutches for you, so you and your little bag can stun at the next wedding or formal event that’s on your calendar. We picked out awe-worthy accessories that you’re bound to love. From velvet exteriors to marble clasps, we got a little extravagant with these clutches. They won’t break the bank, though, don’t worry.
