Wardrobe Essentials: The Clutch

Is it MONDAY already!!!  Is anybody else wondering where the weekend went??  Mondays aren’t my best day…what about you?  If you agree with me, I hope I can bring a little fun into your Monday with this post!

What are the classic items that you can add to your wardrobe that will never go out of style?  What are timeless pieces that add style and class after fashion fades?  That’s right…it’s time to talk about another essential piece you should add to your wardrobe.  The clutch.  I just LOVE clutches and can’t get enough of them!  What’s that you say?  You’re afraid to add a clutch to your wardrobe because you’ll lay it down somewhere and then forget it?  Never fear…there are a lot of clutches these days that are made in the wristlet style, so they have a strap to wear around your wrist.  Problem solved!  Now you have no more excuses.

I don’t know about you but I think a woman with a clutch on a night out just looks so classy…and a little sassy!  A clutch gives the illusion that you’ve got it all together.  There are so many different styles of clutches to choose from.  Don’t assume that a clutch is just a small bag with no straps on it.  The clutch has evolved to become so many different things.  You have small, medium and large clutches-so you can easily find a size to accommodate  all of your personal items.  I also suggest taking an inventory of what you’re putting into your clutch to make sure you’re not stuffing it with unnecessary items.  Here are the items I recommend when carrying a clutch:

  • Lipstick or lip gloss
  • A SMALL mirror (I’ve actually seen clutches that had a small mirror inside-FABULOUS!)
  • Your key to your home and/or car key (don’t carry a lot of unnecessary keys!)
  • Your driver’s license and debit card/cash/credit card
  • Your medical insurance card (You never know what the future holds…best to be prepared!)
  • Cell phone
  • Possibly a thin comb if it’s windy and you know your hair won’t survive by the time you get to where you’re going.
  • One band-aid (SO embarrassing to be out and discover you’re bleeding everywhere-and kind of gross to use the restaurant napkin-just carry a band-aid and excuse yourself to the bathroom!)
  • Two pain relievers (Don’t let a headache or other ache ruin your night out!)
