Milana from the ever-so-useful Fashion Style Advice is back, this time to give us her expert insight on that most feminine of handbags: the clutch. Read on for reasons why you should make this fashion element a staple in your wardrobe.
Handbags are to me what shoes are to Carrie Bradshaw; something you just can’t get enough of! When it comes to wardrobe, handbags are probably a girl’s best friend. They look good, can dress us up and can dress us down, and most importantly, they are the carrier of all of our essentials when we leave the house. They come in many different shapes, sizes, textures, and colors and that’s exactly what makes them fun – they are a feminine item that is both practical and pretty at the same time.
One of my favorite types of bags is a clutch. Why? They are very feminine and very edgy at the same time. They can be worn in many different ways; under your arm, in your hand, around your wrist, or just held with your fingers. You can look very feminine by holding it up in the palm of your hand with your arm stretched out, or very edgy and cool just holding the edge of the clutch in your fingers or under your arm.
The Alisha Distressed Clutch is perfect for both night and day. What I like about this clutch is its functionality – it’s not too small and not too big, either. There’s room for all your must-have beauty items like mascara, lip gloss, and blush, and it also has small pockets for your phone and other things you want to be able to find quickly.
The color of this clutch is very easy to mix with other colors, especially neutral colors like grey, black and white. It can make any neutral outfit look a lot more exciting and fun and a lot more feminine too.
What’s great about this clutch is that is looks great and is practical at the same, and this is not the case with many clutches. They’re all pretty and can make any outfit just a little more feminine, but usually they’re not practical and you can’t have a lot of things in them.
I would wear this clutch to a lunch, a movie or a night out. It’s not practical for going shopping because you have to hold it in your hand, but it’s perfect for a date! You don’t want to look too bulky going out – you want to look relaxed – and this clutch is great for that!
