When I was growing up, I loved purses. I had my Little Mermaid purse I just couldn’t get enough of. And of course, purses made out of jean material I wanted to carry everywhere. By the time I was a teenager, however, I was more inclined to just stuff cash and my ID in my back pocket and call it a day. I thought full-size purses were too cumbersome to carry and sometimes just got in the way. Now, I’m in between. I love my oversized hang bags when I know I won’t be home for awhile and want to make sure I have everything I need. But on the other hand, I absolutely adore my smaller clutches and I know I am not alone.

So why are clutches so popular these days? Gosh, I don’t even know where to start. In recent years, clutches have become both a great accessory piece and a practical way to carry the important items you need for a night out on the town. Clutches come in multiple sizes depending on the look you are going for and how much room you need. Smaller clutches may be perfect for a few hours out while a bigger clutch with pockets allows you to organize everything you need for that special night.

Clutches also come in multiple colors. If you have on a neutral colored outfit, a bright colored clutch may be the perfect way to accessorize. And to give you even more options, clutches not only come in multiple colors and sizes, but they also come in different styles. Some clutches include a wristlet so you can easily carry the clutch around your wrist, while other clutches include a shoulder strap perfect to complement any outfit you pair it with. Whether you choose a bright colored shoulder clutch or a neutral mini clutch, you really can’t go wrong with this great and useful accessory.
