The Best Designer Clutches and Evening Bags
There are multiple reasons for why one must add a clutch bag to their collection. First of all, it’s a must-have bag to have for attending formal events. Second of all, clutches come in a variety of forms. They are very functional and versatile. Those models that come with chains can easily be transformed into chic crossbody bags. Why, I, in particular, love clutches so much, is that their price point isn’t always too extreme. Often times, a designer clutch would cost way less than a crossbody bag from the same designer, unless it’s some exotic design. The clutch is one of the staples to have in any women’s closet! This is why in this blog post I’ve decided to break down the list of my favorite designer clutches. Are you on a search for a perfect designer clutch bag? If yes, carry on reading!
YSL Uptown Pouch Clutch
Starting up the list of my absolute favorite designer clutch bags is the Saint Laurent (YSL) Uptown Pouch Clutch. It is a classic envelope-style clutch made of 100% calfskin leather. The Uptown Pouch Clutch has gained a popularity and received a lot of social media attention in late 2019. Multiple influencers refer to the Uptown Pouch Clutch as to the most affordable designer clutch bag. And it is true. For the price that The Uptown Pouch Clutch retails for ($475 in the United States), it is absolutely a steal. The bag has it all. Classic design and gorgeous quality with an unbeatable price tag.
Chanel Quilted Small Clutch with Chain
Next in the list of my favorite clutches comes Chanel’s Quilted Small Clutch with Chain. You cannot deny that most of the bags by Chanel are timeless classics. You can never go wrong with Chanel. Out of all clutches that the fashion house has ever released, the Quilted Small Clutch with Chain is my favorite. It is compact, yet very chic. This clutch features a gold leather threaded chain-link strap and a gold CC logo in the front. The strap is long enough that allows to wear the clutch as a crossbody. So, not only the bag can be used during the evening, but it would also effortlessly blend with daytime looks.
Alexander McQueen Knucklebox Four-Ring Clutch
When I was just getting into the designer fashion, one of the first items that I fell in love with was the Knucklebox Clutch by Alexander McQueen. Throughout the years, it has maintained its spot as one of the most popular designer clutches of all time. The Knucklebox Clutch is also one of the most recognized items from Alexander McQueen. You will never stay unnoticed at an event with the Knucklebox Clutch in your hand! The clutch is perfect to hold all your evening essentials and it is effortless to carry through four finger loops. The Knuckebox clutch comes in a variety of finishes. I, especially, like the nappa studded leather finish. Not only is this clutch perfect for more formal evening events, but also fits well with more casual party looks.
Louis Vuitton Pallas Clutch
One of my personal favorite items from Louis Vuitton is the Pallas Clutch bag. Not only the Pallas Clutch looks classy, but it’s also really functional. It goes well with both day and evening looks. The strap is long enough to wear the bag crossbody, which gives that extra versatility. Moreover, even though the bag, at first, looks kind of small, it’s not entirely accurate. It effortlessly fits in all of the essentials, which makes it a perfect little bag to own.
Louis Vuitton Petite Malle
We have all first seen the Petite Malle on the Louis Vuitton runway back in 2014. I, personally, still admire how beautiful this bag is. The design of the Petite Malle pays homage to the rich history of Louis Vuitton. Do you actually remember, that initially the fashion house was known for its trunks?! The Petite Malle bag is like a piece of art. It’s a bag you pretty much must-own if you are a true fan of Louis Vuitton. The bag can be carried both as handheld clutch, or as a crossbody (the bag comes with a detachable strap). The only downside is that the Petite Malle is quite tiny. It does not fit too many essentials, so this bag is definitely more suitable for the evening wear.
Hermes Jige Clutch
One of the timeless pieces from Hermes is their Jige Clutch. The bag boasts a compact silhouette, as well as an H Logo closure with a cross-over leather flap. I, personally, find the Jige Clutch being one of the most practical and versatile designer items out there. Bag’s sleek, yet very beautiful design, allows to wear it both day and night. Casual, office and evening looks – there are multiple possibilities of how one could style the bag. Furthermore, The Jige Clutch comes in 5 sizes: Mini, PM, GM, Elan 29 and Elan 35. Moreover, if you choose to get this clutch in Hermes Epsom Leather, which is known for its durability, this clutch will definitely serve you a lifetime!
