Anything that holds your iphone, credit card and lipstick should be treated with the utmost adoration, since, let’s face it, they are your life. That’s why, in addition to a killer tan (spray tan, we hope), fashionistas ought to arm themselves with a cute little clutch to complement an adorable manicure this fall. From the uber luxe embellished variety to styles adorned in funky patterns that draw the eye, clutches can and always will be a fashionable and functional complement to any look you’re rocking, no matter the season. These five stylish clutches will serve as the proverbial cherry on top of a fabulous outfit as you make the fashion transition from summer to fall.
Add a studded clutch or miniaudiere into the mix for an outfit exuding edge. A basic T-shirt paired with distressed skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans is made exponentially more stylish when worn with a leather clutch adorned in tough-as-nails hardware. To keep true to the rock n’ roll vibe of this effortless look, rock studded clutches with rich burgundy, black or white nails to nail the look to perfection. For a glam-meets-edgy contrast that’s always irresistible, sport a bright pink, coral or fierce orange mani to offset the severity of spiked and studded arm candy.
A printed clutch adds an instant dose of interest to monochromatic outfits or those lacking pizazz. If you’re sporting a bright, bold dress during winter, opt for a floral or abstract printed clutch for that perfect punch of prettiness. When toting around a loud clutch, keep your mani on the low-maintenance side. Shades like beige, pale pink and soft metallics like rose gold are ideal for sporting with loud handbags. Nude hues and clean-cut French tips keep the attention where it needs to be – a fabulous accessory.
While blinding neon shades are best left to summer, that’s not to say they don’t belong anywhere near fall. Psychedelic prints are a hot trend for the season and when rocking these, the occasion might call for a neutral clutch to tone things down. If so, opt for a beautifully bold mani to lend a hand to the look. A little burst of a highlighter shade like neon pink, yellow and orange have the power to bring out the gorgeous shades found in a far-out psychedelic print. Combine this with an ultra rich, pigmented shade to take the wow factor ten steps further.
