Necessity: The Clutch

{Tan: Asos, Topshop, JCrew}

The clutch is a bag that is often overlooked in my wardrobe, and many others. For the most part I like having as much space as I can in a bag so I turn to totes and other large bags. However, sometimes you don't want or need a lot in your bag and this is where having the perfect clutch is a great thing. 

Every girl should have (at least) three clutches, one in a neutral color, a bold color, and then a pouch of her choice. Yes, I know that two categories are colors and one is a style but I think a pouch is an important category. In the first two categories I would look for more structured clutches since a pouch is so simple. 

For spring some of my favorites in each category are tan/nude pouches! This neutral color goes with everything and can also be dressed up or down. When looking for a colored clutch I would pick a pastel one right now. Also look for colors that accent pieces in your wardrobe. I own a lot of blue pieces so the mint would work great in my wardrobe. 

Lastly, when looking for a pouch there are really two ways you can go, either a basic pouch or a fun patterned or beaded pouch. While a basic plain leather pouch will obviously go with a lot, a patterned pouch can also work really well. The beaded pouch above would be great dressed up or down and with so many different colors!

p.s. An extra plus is all these clutches are under $70 and many are under $40!
