No-postage-required envelope

The clutch is no longer just an evening accessory and has already been a “regular” of day wear for some time. Of course while minis like small wristlets and tiny box clutches are still only appropriate for special occasions, their bigger relatives like the large flap-over is perfect for an elegant yet casual look.

In that sense the envelope clutch is definitely one of the most versatile shapes and one of the hottest ones too. Its trend continues from the current season into Fall and Holiday. Day time options are quite big and roomy so they can fit everything you need. Primarily in leather, envelope clutches come in a variety of colors from neutrals to very bold and bright hues; prints and unexpected hardware are also very in trend.

For a night out, opt for a miniature “envelope” in satin, metal mesh or reptile skins. Decorated with lace, crystals and even semi-precious stones a clutch like this will most certainly add a special fine touch to your ensemble.

  1. Hi, this look is stunning. I wonder which color is the BCBG envelope clutch? I'd like to find the same one. I didn't see it from the BCBG website. Could you please kindly comment? I will check your blog again later this week. Thank you!!!
