How To Choose A Clutch Purse

FASHIONKim & Chloe

A clutch purse is this season's accessory of choice. From big and soft, to small and delicate, we are seeing them everywhere! We love an oversized clutch purse to kick any outfit up a notch. A small clutch purse seems to say "I'm just hanging out, wandering, not in a hurry, and don't need to carry much... and don't I look fab." In the past, we'd only seen simple small clutches, and they are definitely still in style. But the pièce de resistance this season is the extra-large, soft, oversized clutch. They add a sense of whimsy, but are practical since they fit just as much as a regular purse. big clutch for summer

Plus, accessories are a fun way to play with fashion, and can be inexpensive too. In fact, we recommend if you are wanting to try a new trend, such as boho or neons, try the trend through your accessories and with a new clutch purse -- since you don't have to make an style commitment! Just try a trend for a season and see how it goes. If you love it, you have a newfound style; and if not, pass on the "trend" and stick with what you love!

Clutch purses can add a pop of color, or even depth to your existing color scheme. We like them to also funkify a simple outfit - an embellished or fringe clutch can take a drab outfit to fab. And a striped clutch with plaids or more stripes show you are bold and aren't afraid to take fashion chances. When you want to play it safe, pick a color-blocked clutch purse for a punchy accent that still adds interest. Neon will up the ante of any outfit, especially if you are keeping a preppy aesthetic, but want to add a trendy vibe. Whatever your goal, it's easy to find a clutch purse perfect for this summer!
