The Must-Have Styles of Designer Clutches

Women’s designer clutch handbags have been in vogue since the 1930s, and have come a long way from being simple boxes crafted in silver or gold. Today a designer clutch bag is an essential in every woman’s wardrobe and is no longer just a bag to use on special occasions or at formal events. Styles now range from the Saint Laurent Love Bag Box through to the Bottega Veneta BV Twist Bag.

The beauty of designer clutch bags is how easily they can double as other items, giving you more bang for your buck. The Gucci 1955 Horsebit Pouch is a vintage-inspired clutch bag that can easily be used as a toiletry bag for traveling. The Versace Virtus Clutch, with its delicate gold chain, can be worn as a crossbody bag for everyday wear to give a tailored edge to any look.

Bottega Veneta’s revival in the luxury fashion world has been due in large part to their cult-favorite designer clutch bags, including The Pouch Clutch which is available both in miniature and oversized options. Saint Laurent also dominates the designer clutch bag market, with entry-level bags such as their signature Monogram Envelope Clutch and the fan-favorite Kate Tassel Chain Bag. Elsewhere, Alexander McQueen is synonymous with its Four Ring Clutch Bag, allowing you to add a touch of gothic romanticism to any formal event.

Whether you want to save your designer clutch bags for special occasions or use them every day as functional pieces, they are a great investment item that can stay on rotation in your closet for seasons on end.
