Having some set items for special occasions can come in handy. Here is a versatile formal clutch to save for those extra fancy events.
It is always useful to have some set parts of your wardrobe for specific things. Some things every closet should have are a little black dress, a universal interview outfit, and a few other staple pieces to keep your wardrobe fully stocked and at the ready no matter what. It is always smart to have some fancy things on hand. Even if you do not attend formal events very often, it is good to save pieces from past events to use in the future in the event that the occasion arises. One accessory fits that category and that is the elegant clutch. The clutch is the perfect handbag for more upscale events, and this one ring knuckle duster does the trick.
This elegant piece makes a classic statement. On it’s own, it is very bold and eye-catching, using large gold and rhinestone insets over a loud statement color. These primary-leaning jewel tones add a touch of old world elegance that is found in regalia and is reminiscent of royalty. Because this statement clutch is so bold on its own, it goes best with basics and more subtle dresses or pantsuits. For instance, a knuckle duster in any of these shades would go wonderfully with a little black dress. Its motif can be implemented simply by using other accent pieces that are the same shade as the bag, such as matching shoes and jewels or colored jewelry with the clutch itself.
You can also go with using the bag’s color to inspire a theme for your look. Wearing other blues in the same family as the blue used in the bag you can create an interesting, somewhat matching look that doesn’t look too matchy-matchy but is still well coordinated and complete. Accessorize with simple gold jewelry that only adds a hint of shimmer with some rhinestone or diamond earrings to balance the look. Alternatively, you can use the color of the bag as a means of offset. Pair this clutch with a dress in a complementary color to that used in the knuckle duster you choose. You can go with the option above of using it to accent a little black dress, but this clutch would stand out just as well against most other neutrals, especially whites or beiges. It all depends on the look you wish to achieve and the level of glam you’re going for. No matter what, it is always vital to have a staple formal bag on hand because you never know when you might need one in a pinch.
