The Perfect Clutch Bag | And How You Can Win One!

Every girl needs a clutch bag. Cocktail functions, weddings, formal parties, dinner get-togethers – all occasions where it’s perfect to give your handbag a rest and reach for a little clutch bag.

Over the years, I’ve collected my fair share of clutches – big and small, I’ve had them all – however I do find there is a perfect sweet spot when it comes to clutches. The one that can easily fit your phone, cards, cash, keys and lippy, and preferably a few extras too – mints/tissues/greeting card. Well, I have come across a little clutch that suits all of these needs – and I’ve found it in a season-perfect metallic shade (and it also comes in navy).  This clutch has the Goldilocks seal of approval from me – its’s not too big, not too small, it’s just right!

Say hello to the You’ve Got This clutch by Caramel & Co. You might remember Caramel & Co from our collaboration last year which saw a lucky Pretty Chuffed reader win a Monaco hobo bag. Well this time, we’re talking about the perfect clutch, and yes, you’ve the chance to win one of them, too!

Metallics are big news this season, but I think a silver clutch is a wardrobe staple.

The You’ve Got This clutch is a zip top, rectangular clutch that – just like the other bags in the Caramel & Co range – is super high quality. It’s a soft Aniline leather-look with contrasting silver hardware, and its minimalist style certainly appeals to me – it’ll go with everything.

What I love most about this clutch is it perfectly straddles ‘dressy’ and ‘casual’ – you can just as easily pair this clutch back with a formal dress for a wedding or your jeans and a top for a dinner out.

And, my top tip for getting more use out of your clutches (if occasions are few and far between – I see you, mums of little ones!), is to use them as a wallet – pop your cards, cash and phone in them and then pop them into a bigger bag which holds all of your other goodies. Then if you do happen to go out on your own, and don’t need the extra ‘stuff’ (for me it’s nappies, wipes, snacks and a change of clothes for the girls) you can just grab the clutch and go. It’s also fab for holding the essentials if you quite often swap handbags (as I do!).

The clutch itself features a wristlet which means you can go hands-free (PERFECT for cocktail events), and the internal card holders and a note section means your cash and cards won’t be just floating about inside. See what I mean? It really is the perfect clutch!

Internal card compartments and plenty of room.

The You’ve Got This clutch passes the greeting card clutch test!

Luxurious detailing I just adore.

So, do you want to get your hot little hands on one of these gorgeous clutches? Of course you do!

    OMG The navy is exactly what I have been looking for! It is perfect. It is not a ‘want’…it is a ‘NEED’
    I would take her everywhere. But her first outing would be to dinner and drinks with my girlfriend for her birthday 💚💛💙💜

    Love these! I would love the navy (shows up less dirt from my toddlers sticky fingers I would imagine!) I would pop it in the backpack I take everywhere with us and use it as a wallet..with a lipstick in there too of course because even a trip to the park is an outing these days 😂

    Love love LOVE the Navy “You got this Clutch” – My late Grandma had a beautiful navy bag. Every time I see navy bags/wallets/clutches, I think of her. So my new Caramel and CO’s clutches first outing would have to include Devonshire tea, with scones, jam and cream (of course!) xx

    Ok as boring as this sounds I would take the silver clutch to school pickups. I only ever take my keys, phone and a little bit of cash. So the Carmel and co clutch ticks all those boxes. But the clincher for me is the wrist strap. I am able to hang the clutch on my wrist and have two free hands to push the stroller and then still have a free hand to take all the bags, notes, artwork , etc that is inevitably dumped on me when I pick up my two school age kids.

    I would love to take the silver clutch on my trip to QLD with my husband for our first wedding anniversary in April! Then it’d be perfect to keep in my work bag and stock it with extra cash and cards, but also stickers and bubbles as I’m a paediatric nurse and these things come in handy when helping little kiddies who need something to brighten up their day 🙂

    I would love the silver please and it would become the home of my wallet, keys and phone and go everywhere with me in all my larger kiddy bags. My husbands always tells me to put a smaller bag with the essentials in my bigger bags as he’s a bit sick of me losing everything

    Silver would be my fave, so easy to pair with different colours and styles. I’m heading off on a long anticipated child-free holiday soon, and how perfect would it be to use this lovely clutch for an evening outing, once the daily tourist backpack has retired for the day.

    Oh wow!! I’d love the silver, the perfect accessory for a night out and would fit in seamlessly with the rest of my wardrobe.

    I would be so grateful for the silver clutch! I own and wear too much black, and I think this would be the perfect way to start incorporating more colour into my life! First outing would definitely be to an annual catchup with my college girls!

    Silver would be lovely ! But hard to choose over the navy …. I have a wedding in London in June – my first child free break in 4years. Would be lovely to take a bag that didn’t have the crumbs vegemite toast, or half a rusk or 15 half used tissues in it! If I won the clutch it might then help me put together an outfit to match!

    Oh the silver is gorgeous! I’m about to embark on a solo trip of 30+ hours with my 20 month old. Out of the mountain of ‘stuff’ we need for the plane, this little clutch would fit everything for mum. Little miss on the other hand needs a shipping container – got those in silver?

    I would love a navy one. I would take it on a date night with my husband. Always nice not to have to take everything but the kitchen sink out when the kids are at home. What better way then doing that with this gorgeous clutch

    I’d love the navy clutch! I think it would be perfect to keep in my handbag and take our when I duck out of the office for lunch and only need the essentials! Best part would be that I can lock my larger bag in my work locker and take the clutch to play when we go for after-work drinks! Perfect for the day and evening, the Navy clutch would not get dirty quickly and would match corporate wear, denim and party wear!

    What a divine little clutch I’d love the navy that would become my new everyday go to bag. Perfect for running to and from meetings, however she deserves a first outing to remember so I think it would make its debut on an upcoming trip to Milan. The slick stylish look will fit right in!
