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