The Chicastic Guide to CLUTCH PURSES


A clutch is, simply speaking, a small purse. It is usually built around a frame opening at the top, held closed by a kissing lock. The clutch has evolved from this simple design and now includes the envelope, fold over, minaudière (box), frame, and wristlet.

The clutch was designed to hold only the necessities, such as a cell phone, driver’s license, lipstick and car keys. There are an infinite number of designs and styles, and they range in price from $10 to the thousands. The clutch went out of fashion in the early 19th century, but came back to popularity during World War II. They’ve remained popular to this day, mostly as evening and formal bags but there are plenty of women who use them for daily use.

Here are a few of the most popular styles of clutches.

1. Envelope Clutch

Though it is designed with a more casual look, don’t let this little envelope fool you! It can be used for formal wear as well! Depending on the materials used, an envelope clutch can transition from work to an evening out!

2. Flap

Similar to the envelope clutch, the flap closure clutch is the most popular style for bridesmaid accessories.


3. Fold Over

The Fold Over clutch is almost exclusively a casual bag. It has a zipper top that folds down to half its size when closed.

4. Minaudière

Also known as a box clutch, this bag is the most popular for very formal events as they can be decorated with a myriad of objects such as knuckle duster handles, crystals, faux flowers, pearls, beads, leather…anything you can think of!

5. Frame

The frame usually has a hinge opening with a clasp or kissing lock, and the body is usually made of fabric in a pouch or rectangular shape. Sometimes the body is reinforced with a flexible yet sturdy lining.

6. Wristlet

All frame clutches can be wristlets, but not all wristlets can be frame clutches. It is basically a small bag or wallet with a small strap that fits around your wrist. This bag is a favorite for running errands or tossing in a bigger bag to use later.

We are big fans of Lucille Ball!  She had such great style, having been fashion model early in her career.  We’ve put together an updated and cheeky version of her outfit in the infamous “Vitameatavegamin” episode.  The gingham dress, bottle necklace and fascinator may hint at Lucy, but it’s the   Red Rhinestone Studded Heart Shaped Mini Hard Clutch Purse that really puts the stamp on her signature look.  Take a dose of inspiration from America’s favorite redhead with the Red Rhinestone Studded Heart Shaped Mini Hard Clutch Purse.
