Formal and evening affairs are not the only times that a clutch can come in handy. As you will see below, treat it as a fashion accessory, and it can spice up a boring outfit. Personally, we like a clutch that can become a handbag. When you are tired of holding it in your hand (it happens!), then having the option to add a strap can be a relief. There's a lot of choices available now but here are some of our favorites.
Caterina Shell Clutch, Aranaz This gorgeous shell clutch provides just the right amount of oomph. It will go well with the silk satin number and old Hollywood vibe that Jolina Magdangal is sporting below. Be bold, and team it up with your jeans!
Sweet Like Sugar Sling, February Lifestyle Now who would have thought that black ants can be so pretty on a clutch, proudly handmade in Cebu, by the way. Made of Egyptian leather, Japanese straw, and Philippine Saguran, it is perfect for day gatherings that require a boost of chic-ness! The brand has become a must-have for many local fashion bloggers such as Lissa Kahayon (see below).
Puso wristlet, Fino You want uniquely Pinoy? This wristlet is inspired by Cebu's hanging rice they call puso because of the rice's triangular casing made of woven coconut leaves. It's an eye catching piece that will be the perfect accessory to a stunning formal wear ootd like what Bianca Gonzalez-Intal’ is wearing below.
Wristlet, Costal Bags Toss the heavy office bag, and go for a handy clutch wristlet on weekends. It's spacious enough to stuff in your mobile phone, credit cards, and powder and lip balm. It looks perfect with this ultra femme look by Kelly Misa Fernandez (below).
