Cuckooland is all aboard the clutch bag express, and we have a few tips to share with you this clutch bag season!
Reflect your personality
The clutch bag’s explosion back into the world of women’s fashion has brought with it a whole host of different colours, patterns, materials, shapes and sizes, so be sure to choose carefully! Throughout time, we’ve always chosen – whether consciously or not – a handbag that is an outward reflection of who we are on the inside. Whether you’re a colourful, cosmopolitan and vibrant person with a big, bright primary-coloured clutch; or a cautious conservative preferring easy-on-the-eye shades and tones, make sure your clutch bag reflects you – after all, you’re going to be carrying it around with you everywhere, so you want to give people a good impression! On the subject of shapes and sizes – so chic is the clutch bag, that famed perfume company Chanel Paris have even brought out a clutch bag shaped like one of their famous perfume bottles! So no, this isn’t just an obscure, passing fashion fad – it looks like the clutch bag’s here for the long-run!
Plan for the occasion
You’d be forgiven for thinking that a clutch purse – what with all its connotations of 1920s flapper girl going to the casinos – is a fashion accessory reserved purely for a night on the town; for wining and dining on a weekend at fancy restaurants in the city. While this may be the case, it’s actually no longer uncommon to carry a clutch during the day. Though many may be put off this idea by the traditional “inconvenience” problems clutch bags brought about in only having one spare hand, modern clutch bags are actually much better designed for modern, metropolitan convenience! Not to mention, you no longer have to worry about those unsightly red marks on your neck and shoulders! So be sure to plan your bags – you might consider a sexy snakeskin or a classy-yet-conservative black leather clutch for the night, and a bright, modern number for daytime shopping and coffee with the girls!
The Mighty Purse
And here we have it – a century of zig-zagging in and out of the world of popular ladies’ fashion, and we’ve finally perfected the clutch bag for the 21st century. Behold, the Mighty Purse. We mentioned before that the clutch bag’s revival might be down to just how much technology we carry around with us nowadays, but that doesn’t change the fact that there’s nothing more anxiety-inducing than the bleeping death-rattle of a phone that’s low on battery. Suddenly, your night on the town or lunch with the girls is called into question, as you’re torn between staying out and risking being caught out without any means of contact, or going home and cancelling all of your plans while your phone charges. The Mighty Purse solves this problem. Not only is it a good size, great value for money, and available in a wide variety of colours and textures, the Mighty Purse comes with an in-built lithium battery with a phone charger attached! This charge works with all phones and devices with a USB connection – including Blackberry, Samsung Galaxy and eReaders – Its the perfect gift for her! Not only that, but with the help of a handy, little accessory, the Mighty Purse also becomes adaptable with iPhone and other Apple products! It’s these in-built essentials that make the Mighty Purse and absolute must-have for the modern woman-on-the-go!
So there we have it – the clutch bag is back and it looks like it’s here to stay! But we hope that, with our help, you’ve seen that there’s nothing to fear, and that you’re ready to embrace the clutch bag re-revolution, as well as having picked up a few tips along the way!
