I love when fashion takes conventional “rules” and turns them on their head. Example: white after Labor Day used to be thought of as a faux pas; now winter white is all the fashion world can talk about. A big trend for Fashionistas as of late has been daytime clutches. Once reserved only for evening wear, trendsetters are seeing the light of day by rocking oversized clutches for errands, lunch dates and even classes.
Now Fashionistos are getting in on this accessory trend by rocking man clutches (or as I call them, “mutches”) of their own during the day. A clutch for guys? To be worn during the day? That seems so contradictory, right? Wrong!
This Fashionisto shows us that even the chicest of men can rock a clutch as good as their female counterparts. The key is picking the right style. A classic black envelope, like this Fashionisto’s, is the perfect choice. It is minimalistic, modern and subtle. The envelope shape is simple yet strong. Plus, it is large enough to fit his laptop in, a major plus for a Fashionisto heading between class and internships. Check a few more of our favorite styles in the “Shop The Look” section of this post.
So be a fashion rule breaker, like this Fashionisto, and turn convention on its head by rocking a mutch of your own as you head back on campus.
Spotted: Jil Sander created quite a stir in the fashion world when the designer sent male models rocking high-end leather paper bags as clutches down the runway during the label’s fall 2012 runway show.
