trend alert | the envelope clutch

En route to the wedding last weekend I ducked into Accessorize to buy a new clutch bag, since a stock-take of my others had suggested that they had seen one too many renditions of ‘Oops upside your head’. The shop was one of the tiny varieties you get at train stations with minimal items on display, and just as I was leaving due to the couldn’t-swing-a-cat conditions I spotted this number. Perfect. Obviously the colour (or lack of) dictates it will go with anything, but I also liked its zip detail and envelope shape. Envelope clutches are currently hot in the bag world, and as shown below can look chic in all sizes:

Here are some examples that won’t break the bank… as well as one, shall we say, first class (see what I did there) option:

{1. ASOS portfolio envelope clutch – £20 / 2. Marc B envelope clutch bag – £40 / 3. ASOS pyramid metal tip clutch – £18 / 4. Dorothy Perkins animal clutch bag – £25 / 5. Evans raspberry croc bag – £10 / 6. Jimmy Choo envelope clutch – £349 / 7. ASOS portfolio clutch – £55}
