A Clutch for Every Occasion - A Trend You Must Grab!
12 th Nov 2015

We all love big bags. Roomy enough to even fit in a small pet, big bags give us the freedom to stuff just about anything in them while stepping out.

But as practical as they may be, have you ever considered how they look with say, a festive outfit or a glamorous party gown?

Big bags do not blend in easily with all outfits. On wearing them with certain outfits, big bags can stick out like a sore thumb and turn out to be complete deal-breakers! This is where Indian clutch bags come into picture. They come in a variety of materials with myriad embellishments and are compact enough to be held in the hand. Dainty and elegant, they look classy when paired with dressy outfits. Clutches with embellishments can also be worn with simple outfits in order to dress them up and have been a favourite with fashionistas season after season. So what makes them tick?

They are extremely versatile   

Depending on the material they are made out of and the embellishments they sport, Indian clutch bags can be paired with both traditional and western outfits and worn for just about any occasion. The same clutch can be worn with different outfits with varying impact.

A black clutch bag in silk or linen with minimal embellishments can be used for work or formal occasions. A multicolour beaded clutch bag can add a pop of colour to any plain outfit or complement a colourful outfit as well. A golden clutch bag with sequins can enhance the extravagance of your wedding outfit. The same clutch can be worn with a simple tunic to dress it up with some bling! So you see, whether it is skinny jeans or a gorgeous evening gown, the clutch will work its magic.

They transform the way you look

Picture a woman in a gorgeous gown and a handbag and contrast her with another woman in the same gown and a clutch bag? No prizes for guessing as to who looks more sophisticated and elegant!

They are handy

At parties and gatherings when all that you need is your phone, some cash and your keys, why spoil your style with a big handbag? Simply carry a beaded clutch bag that will take care of both utility and style!

They come in a variety of styles and shapes 

The first thing that we look for while buying anything is the number of options that we have to choose from. Ranging from small box clutches to larger envelope clutches in materials like cotton, silk and brocade with embellishments like zari, zardosi or sequin work, the options in Indian clutch bags are aplenty. You can choose a clutch that works best for you depending on the occasion that you need the clutch for and the dress you are wearing.

Having seen as to why clutches are so popular, let us show you some popular styles and tell you how you can incorporate them in to your day to day look. We will take you through some gorgeous clutches by The Purple Sack that we have on offer. 

Styling Tips

Before we delve into the Indian clutch bags that we have on offer, here are a few pointers to remember while styling them:

  • Don’t look at matching your clutch with your outfit all the time. Contrast works well too!
  • A nude clutch bag and a black clutch bag are basics that every woman must have in her collection. Choose them in styles that will make them suitable for both work and casual outings all year round.
  • Beaded clutch bags and Indian clutch bags with sequins are just what you need to make your festive outfits more special. But if your outfit already has an overdose of colours or sequins, then a similar clutch will end up making the look too loud. So know where to draw the line when it comes to styling with Indian clutch bags.
  • Clutches look good only when they hold items appropriate to their size. There is nothing more unsightly than an overstuffed clutch. So if you are looking to buy one, then consider the contents that it will hold and pick a size that fits your requirements.
  • A clutch with a sling is a lifesaver during occasions when you can’t hold the clutch. If wearing a sling is not your personal style, then you can even detach the sling or stuff it into the clutch and hold the bag in your hand. 

Now allow us to tempt you with these beautiful Indian clutch bags by The Purple Sack.
