A large shoulder bag would have killed the outfit pictured below. Certain outfits just call for a nice clutch. It looks more dainty and adds a bit of stylish elegance to an outfit. Though it should be noted, clutches can be worn with even the most casual of outfits. In fact, that is one of my favorite ways to wear them.
Please excuse the doofy look on my face!
So, if you're looking for an easy way to jazz up a casual button down with jeans, or need the perfect bag to go with your LBD, just grab a clutch, fill it with the essentials (lipstick, mirrored compact, money, license, keys... I think that covers it) and head out looking very chic and stylish!
