One of my faithful followers (thanks, Jenny!) asked me to help her find a new, reasonably priced clutch for date night/girls' night out purposes.  You want a purse?  Lord knows, I can find you a purse!  I happen to know this reader well, so I found one for her, and she bought it!  But, I thought there were probably others out there who could use a spring/summer update to their going out bag, so I've found a few good, versatile, and affordable options.

If I were in the market for a new springtime clutch, I would get something colorful and fun, with a tribal this:

Banjara Clutch by Moomal on Etsy - $60

Or this:

Loft Oversize Clutch Pouch - $40

Another colorful, but more streamlined option:

J. Crew Leather Pouch from Net-a-Porter - $50

If you need something more neutral that will go with everything, casual or dressy, you know I love a good metallic:

J. Crew Factory Leather Envelope Clutch - $58

Or the one Jenny got from Neiman Marcus Last Call (where they always have some sort of sale going on -- today it's an additional 40% off of one item, with plenty of fine print):

Hobo Millie Mosaic Clutch - $52.50

And if you want something really simple and classic, I am having a color crush on cognac right now.  This one is gorgeous:

Cognac Leather Clutch by Loka Studio on Etsy - $66

Which is your favorite?  Should I know about others?  

As a personal stylist in Richmond, VA, I strive to make wardrobe choices clear and easy for women who are short on time, overwhelmed by their closets, or transitioning from one period of life to another.  Let's connect! 


  1. As much as we love bags we don't own many clutches at all. Our fave is the gold one from JCrew. Mendi has a cute leopard folder over one that she got at GAP last year.
