You wouldn't be able to fit all of the criticisms against evening bags into one; they're too small, too pricey, too impractical... I've heard all this before from guys who are comepletely bemused by the accessory's appeal, but I still love the clutch bag all the same.
So here's a sneaky peak at my favourite four...
Clockwise from top left:
Pewter fabric clutch with oversized crystal clasp -
An absolute treat to find under the tree last Christmas
Plain black patent clutch -
A trusty favourite bought years ago for a few quid in Peacocks
Vintage cream leather clutch with gold clasp -
Inherited from a stylish era gone by
Chainmail clutch -
Actually intended as a make-up bag but perfect with black nails for more of a glam-rock look
