20 On-Trend Clutches to Add to Your Handbag Collection

Any fashion-conscious woman knows what a major role accessories can play in an outfit. For everyday use, we might grab the same goes-with-everything handbag, but when we’re headed somewhere special—a wedding or black-tie event, say—or even a casual event that you just don’t want to lug a giant tote to, clutches can be key.

Whether you’re more of a classic gal and go with a striped or textured clutch, or you’re ready to try something over-the-top or extra-fancy, there is an on-trend clutch that will perfectly compliment your outfit.
