Best Bets: In Your Clutches


If the spring fashion shows proved anything, it was that clutches are the new must-have bag shape. This tan suede envelope version has two rows of simple gold studs and a slim yet expandable body that holds more tubes of lip gloss than you'd imagine. The most convenient feature is the removable thin gold-chain strap that turns the clutch into a long shoulder bag. The light-brown color has a cool, vintage look that pairs perfectly with either denim shorts or a sexy minidress. Now, if we can just remember to keep the bag tucked safely under our arm when we go out at night!
