The chicest clutch bags for daytime dressing

Not just reserved for evening, the clutch bag has become a daytime option, too, with added practicality. GRACE COOK highlights the styles to get your hands on this season…

It was first designed as the perfect accessory to 1920s party dresses, complementing the elegant evening silhouettes with its sleek, handle-free design. But the clutch bag is no longer confined to the party closet. Today’s spacious iterations, crafted from buttery soft leathers reminiscent of a cloud or a sumptuous squashy pillow, have become an everyday staple in modern wardrobes thanks to their ability to smarten up even the most casual outfits – model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley regularly pairs her Bottega Veneta ‘Pouch’ with jeans and a crisp white tee.

These new clutches have easy appeal; they offer the impression of hyper put-togetherness but remain a simple grab-and-go style due to their sizeable dimensions that ensure they fit all manner of daily essentials. Loewe’s Jonathan Anderson offers his contemporary take with the ‘Flamenco’ clutch – a slouchy style with a natty drawstring fastening that feels simultaneously sporty and sleek. New York label Khaite’s Catherine Holstein had on-the-go women in mind when she designed the ‘Alma’ clutch – the pencil-case design is equipped with a wrist strap that allows you to travel hands-free.

Of course, it’s Daniel Lee at Bottega Veneta who has really made the clutch his own in recent seasons. The large gathered ‘Pouch’ has become a staple on stylish women the world over for understated luxe and practicality – the winter-white version will add a fresh lift to new-season wardrobes.
