I particularly like the trend this summer of the bejewelled clutch bag – no more deliberating over jewellery – Can I wear these bangles with earrings?? – Is my jewellery too heavy for my summer dress??
Just grab your favourite jewel encrusted clutch bag and go. It allows you to look care free and free-spirited through the summer months; more about lightness and spontaneity than well thought out grooming.
Don’t clutter your look with an array of necklaces, earrings and scarves but merely enhance with a well chosen clutch. There are plenty of heirloom examples around, ones that will stay in your wardrobe for seasons to come. Take a look in particular at www.chanel.com and ultimately www.couturelab.com. They have some amazing little clutches of all shapes and sizes. Some are quite a price! But stroll through the web site and gather ideas.
My favourite is a silver toned, studded clutch by Anndra Neen as it is luxurious but a little understated; subtle. It rolls in at £530. Maybe I coul convince myself that it would never date as it is a subtle piece and would be a part of my wardrobe forever…………….. or maybe I will keep it in my minds eye and find a bargain substitute.
As much as I love to drool over such gorgeous items I eventually put my ‘money head on’ and look for a cheaper but just as effective option and I have found some very pretty, chic, inexpensive clutches. Take a look at www.coast-stores.com.
The Marion weave clutch bag hits the spot for me at £55.00 and I also adore the little daisy pearl clutch bag at £60.00 for a very feminine look.
If you move quickly coast have a most gorgeous silver sequin clutch in their sale at a mere £29.00.
