Clutch purses are every girl’s favorite because of their style quotient. They look gorgeous and carrying the right one that suits your personality the best makes you look more elegant. They come in all shapes and sizes in a variety of material and style. Just like any other accessory, a clutch purse can make or break the entire look. Following few style tips you should be able to choose the right one for yourself.
1. Opt for clutch purses that suit your body type and personality
Just like your clothes, your accessories should also suit your personality type. Even when you are buying a clutch, do not simply just follow trends. Instead opt for the style that compliments your body type and personality. The general rule is that petite girls should opt for a small sized clutches and tall girls should opt for elongated shaped or larger clutches. Thin females should look for softer and rounded clutches, while girls with heavier frames should stick to more structured clutches. The basic idea is to avoid the shape of a clutch similar to your own body shape. Carrying too big or too small sizes as compared to your proportions would visibly make your size more obvious. So if you have soft body features or flab, choosing a style that will sharpen the edges is a safe bet. Likewise, if you have stronger and defined body features like collarbones, shoulder blades and skinny legs, then a style that softens those features is a better choice.
2. Secure the versatile styles first
It makes sense to first stock at least a couple of clutches that are versatile and can be used blindly with almost everything. Classic clutches in neutral and one solid color like black, beige or brown go well with every attire and can be used during day time as well as later in the evening. These clutches should be of minimalist design and uncomplicated shapes and patterns. These are timeless classic pieces that will last you for years to come.
3. Opt for a clutch with strap inside
Many clutches come with an attached strap that can be pulled out of the clutch to convert it into a small handbag. Even though clutches look stylish and cool when held in your hand but it can be bothersome to carry them for longer period of time. With a strap attached, it becomes easier and also safer to hold the clutch close to your body for longer duration. Thus a clutch with a strap is a smart choice because of its multiple utility benefits.
4. Stuffs that you want to carry in your purse
You should always keep in mind what all you need to stuff in your clutch before making the final purchase. An overstuffed clutch is unsightly and can ruin the whole look. If you need to carry way too many things with you all the time, you are better off with handbags or bigger sized clutches.
