With the current economy, we all can’t afford to overhaul our wardrobe each season. However, you can change up your look dramatically with the right handbag. If you can only buy one handbag this season, make it a patent leather clutch.
A clutch is a versatile bag that can go from daytime to night, if you pick the right one. Choose a clutch that isn’t oversized (that's too big for evening) but isn’t so small that you can’t carry your essentials.
Black is the obvious choice, but don’t be afraid to play with color. Purple is one of the hottest colors right now, and red patent bags are always a great choice. If smooth patent leather is too glossy for your taste, select a textured patent. Many patent leather bags have quilting, embossed snake, and other textures added for a different look.
