Almost every girl owns a huge purse. They will grab that purse, throw all kinds of unnecessary items in it and then complain all day about how heavy it is. I know this because I’ve done it definitely more than once. The solution? Pack only what you need: cell phone, money, keys and your favorite lipstick. Then, instead of the huge purse you have been lugging around, try a clutch!
Super simple, classic and sophisticated, clutches have made their way into the hands of a very famous crowd. From award shows to fashion events, celebrities everywhere have carried these easy-to-wear pieces when they need to look simpler and clean. Take Olivia Palermo for example — every girl wants to spend a night looking like Palermo and wearing a clutch might be the perfect touch to any outfit to add that classy flair.
Vintage shops and thrift stores are the perfect place to find these clutches. Though women in the past were huge fans of the clutch, they have taken a backseat to the oversized purse in the 2000s. So finding them in old shops or even in your grandmother’s closet might be the perfect place to purchase or borrow one of these fabulous clutches. If you aren’t a vintage person, you can find really adorable clutches at popular shops, such as Forever 21, Topshop and H&M.
This FIT Fashionista in particular rocked this vintage black clutch perfectly. She used the clutch to coordinate the black on her cheetah flats which clearly worked out in her favor. The pearl necklace definitely added some class. Overall, this outfit would be perfect for an internship, important lunch or a meeting!
Spotted: Hugely famous for their classic style and sophistication, Chanel featured amazing clutches on their fall 2013 ready-to-wear runway show. Even though we college students probably can’t afford Chanel, we can still dream.
