Clutches have been increasing in popularity for decades. From the dawn of Hollywood starlets walking down the Red Carpet, to Midwestern proms – ladies love clutches! Even if only for one special night, a clutch can redefine a look. A huge handbag will look awkward against that little black dress, and you don’t want to be carrying around a huge sack of your belongings when you are dancing and drinking cocktails anyway. You just need a basic clutch to keep a few essentials, like a credit card and your house keys.

You don’t want a basic wallet tied around your wrist. You want every part of your outfit to look chic and stylish. Here are a few hot evening clutches you should try this season.

Evening Clutches

Anya Hindmarch Metallic Clutch
Metallic looks great with just about any dress. No matter the color, no matter the cut, and no matter the occasion, you can’t go wrong with a metallic clutch. This clutch from Anya Hindmarch is smaller than two hand widths, but it has a spacious pouch for keeping more than just a few cards and a lipstick. The metallic has a true shine that goes beyond what you get from basic sequins or flimsy material. This clutch has a brilliant design that will add a pop to any outfit.

Reece Hudson Gold Clutch
Metallics are as hot as ever and this year, they are a must! If you like gold instead of silver, this clutch is the perfect choice. It has a hard case that snaps together like a wallet, but it has a spacious interior that will fit keys, makeup tubes, and even a small brush. The gold finish is elegant, not overwhelming. It has a mesh pattern that creates interesting texture and detracts from the shine.

Diego Zuko Fringe Clutch
You can wear this clutch during the day or night. It has a fun design with boho fringe that hangs down to your thigh. This isn’t a clutch that you’ll want to wear to a formal event, but it’s perfect for a night out or for a work party. Think of it this way: This is a clutch for the MTV awards, not the Oscars.

Miu Miu Red Satin Clutch
This beautiful clutch is elegant yet stylish. It has a little more going on for it than the typical clutch, including top stitching in multiple patterns that create lines and cross hatching across the front and back. This clutch has a soft exterior that will look beautiful against a wider variety of dress designs.

Victoria Beckham Leather and Suede Clutch
For a classic look with a twist, go with this black clutch from Posh Spice herself. It has a leather and suede exterior that includes interesting texture and pattern. The zipper ensures that the contents don’t spill out, and the soft side provides some give.

Choose any of these evening clutches, and you’ll create a beautiful look that will help you feel more put together and confident.
