On Trend: Envelope Clutches


ClutchesThis year, envelope clutches have become a first class accessory.  Who knew that the U.S. Postal Service would provide inspiration for the latest bag trend?  Fortunately, the envelope clutches that designers have been hawking are sleek, chic, and devoid of bubble wrap.

I am lusting after the clean symmetry of Celine’s envelope clutch precisely constructed of white leather and camel suede.  However, my lack of insufficient funds has forced me to look elsewhere and I have found plenty of affordable options to satiate my desire for this trend.  For a mere $118, JCrew’s Invitation clutch is available in gorgeous suede jewel tones of tropical green and dark peony.  The Invitation comes with a golden chain that can be tucked away into the clutch.

The ASOS leather embossed ostrich clutch, pictured above, is at an even more attractive price point and currently on sale.  I love the slimness of this clutch and the neutral tan color is perfectly suited for day or night.  Whatever you choose, envelope clutches should be given a priority stamp in your fashion book.
