Spring's Supreme Clutch Bags 2013

The clutch bag has become so much more than just a mobile-and-lipstick carrying commodity on the red carpet. Accessible to a wider style-loving audience, a clutch polishes off any outfit, whether it's daytime casual or ritzy evening wear. This season, playing along to Spring 2013's fashion trends, clutch bags can be seen in monochromes, animal prints, glossy metallics, tri-tones and neon hues. 

Geometric bags take centre stage, with rectangular and boxy shapes, illustrating modernism and chic functionality. Get yours embellished with gold and silver hardware - if it has zips, spikes, studs and chains...you're an instant trendsetter. Exotic leather and sparkling beadwork add texture, while bold prints yield a sense of fun and whimsicality. Spring 2013 also sees a series of sugary pastels, fold-over pouches and see-through perspex bags. Here are some of my favourite picks for the upcoming season.

Black & White


Fluoro Pop

Dressed Up Metallics

Sugar Candy

Everyday Neutrals

Tropical Tones





































Which would your ideal Spring/Summer 2013 clutch be?

I love the way you have put these into neat categories. Having always been a fan of the clutch, there are so many here that I would like in my wardrobe! I especially like the colour combination of the Victoria Beckham one, the classic Saint Laurent and Tory Burch for a pop of colour. I really enjoy my visits to your lovely blog!

hi Sam! i hope you're doing well with school and everything else:) so sorry for not commenting the last days... i love to add cute clutches to outfits. i don't have that many though because i barely use them... just for partying hihi. my favorite here is the black studded clutch by valentino. the fluoro pop and tropical tones ones are so beautiful! those colors are perfect for summer!

I actually prefer clutch bags to big handbags. I know that's weird. But I always look online for designer clutch bags - they're more beautiful in my eyes.
Lovely post! :)

Bravoe Runway said...

Love the idea of these clutches but for the working person, it is definitely a stretch to carry something like this when you are off the work.

Gina said...

Gorgeous clutches!! I love that TB bright coral one. I love the way a clutch added to a daytime casual look just amps up the chicness instantly. They are also a fabulous way to add some brightness to your look if you tend to stick to neutrals most of the time.

Katie Q. said...

I love how pretty clutches are but I hardly ever carry one. I'm terribly forgetful and if I set my purse down, I almost always forget about. (So I'm more of a crossbody bag girl, but clutches are so pretty!) All of these are so gorgeous, but i think the Manish Arora one is my very favorite, the colors and the pattern are so pretty and eye catching! (Argh, I saw a Balmain clutch at the thrift store once and I'm still kicking myself for not grabbing it.)
