Ditch Your Bulky Bucket Bag and Pick Up A Cute Clutch

Looking fabulous in a city as fast-paced as New York requires effort. Some days, a big handbag is needed to hold all of our supplies (think flats, makeup, perfume… the list could go on and on). But other times, all we need is a credit card and a tube of lipstick and we’re good to go. For those days when less is more, there’s no need to carry a bulky purse—a simple, sleek clutch will suffice. Check out our chic picks below!

Add a punky statement to any outfit with this camo-inspired clutch—trimmed with cobalt-hued pyramid studs—by Valentino. Constructed from supple French leather and textural canvas panels, the pint-sized purse also features a detachable wrist strap and front handle so you can wear it without worry.
