Whether you are getting ready for an elegant daytime event, a fancy dinner party, or just a day out with the girls, the right designer clutch bag can be your ultimate accessory. That’s right, designer clutches are no longer reserved just for special occasions. Quite the opposite actually – they are meant to be worn everywhere and with everything. For this, thank Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, as well as other designer houses that have been pushing clutches as everyday handbags lately. From your classic envelope-style clutches to supersized wonders, the options for designer clutches these days are truly endless. Hence why I am bringing you the list of the 10 best designer clutch bags.
1. Saint Laurent Monogram Clutch
Starting up with the bag that has been a personal favorite of mine for quite some time now – the Saint Laurent (YSL) Monogram Clutch. Modeled after Saint Laurent’s classic Wallet on Chain, this stunning clutch bag features the house’s signature chevron quilting with the iconic YSL logo on the front. It also comes with a detachable wristlet strap. However, I prefer wearing mine either as a clutch, or a shoulder bag (you can easily attach a strap by using a conversion kit, like this one).
2. Chanel 19 Clutch With Chain
Did you know that the Chanel 19 Bag now also comes in a clutch form? Dubbed Chanel 19 Clutch With Chain, this compact handbag features all the hallmarks of its larger sister, incl. the interwoven CC logo, as well as a chain that’s made from the mix of gold, silver and ruthenium hardware.
3. Louis Vuitton Petite Malle
Inspired by Louis Vuitton’s rich trunk-making heritage, The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle (a.k.a “little trunk”) resembles a miniature trunk, complete with gold-tone hardware and the iconic LV monogram. Carry yours either as a clutch, or attach the adjustable strap for crossbody wear.
4. Hermès Jige Elan Clutch
A classic from Hermès, the Jige Elan Clutch is a flat, envelope-style clutch adorned with the brand’s iconic “H”. Arriving in a large array of colors, from classic hues to vibrant pops of color, it is an excellent option to consider if you are looking for a stylish and versatile everyday clutch.
5. Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Pouch Clutch
The bag that has topped the lists of the best designer clutch bags for multiple seasons in the row – the Bottega Veneta Pouch Clutch is an icon that needs no introduction. Now arriving in the brand’s signature intrecciato weave, as well as multiple sizes incl. versatile “Teen”.

Valentino bags are known for their edgy and sophisticated aesthetic. And the brand’s Envelope Clutch is no exception. Set in a timeless envelope-style silhouette with Valentino’s signature studs decorating the edges of the bag, this clutch bag is as chic as it is edgy. Carry yours from day to night.
7. Alexander McQueen Four Ring Clutch
