As a fashion blogger, one of my biggest peeves is with Bollywood’s (or rather Indian’s) obsession with Bottega Veneta’s The Knot clutch or Alexander McQueen’s Britannia version. Don’t get me wrong I think they both have great designs but there are plenty more options available. Designers such as Olympia Le-Tan and Charlotte Olympia have been pushing the envelope when it comes to design. Also, if you’re in the mood to switch things up from your boring envelope or box clutches, help is on hand. I’m listing some of the most unusual clutches to carry around, trust me they will start the conversation at any swanky soiree.
Looking to snap up one of these babies, just keep these things in mind:
Keep your outfit simple. Don’t overwhelm your look with too many prints or patterns. Keep things streamlined with a simple dress or solid hued separates. Let your clutch be the talking point or rather the centre point of your ensemble. You could experiment with your shoes by choosing a nice pop of colour.
