Mid-Fall Must-Haves: Why it’s Not Hard to Fall for These Clutches

Oct 9 2012 • by Deanna

Fall is far from over and we still can’t enough of the season’s fab color trend: oxblood! This deep and dramatic dark red hue is great to wear day or night and has graced the runways in a gorgeous array of dresses, skirts, and pants. Also in season are the colors wine and burgundy which are  in the same palette as oxblood. But if you think you can’t pull off an oxblood ensemble or just want to accessorize, we have some clutch bag suggestions you’ll definitely fall for this year:

Z Spoke Zac Posen Clutch II, $250

We fancy this Zac Posen clutch for its trapezoidal structure and crocodile-embossed leather that speaks of quality and functionality. Opt for this clutch when you’re going for an edgy look.

 Nicole Miller Rumer Clutch in Oxblood Patent Tundra, $149.95

What’s nice about this clutch is that it’s great for those who want a simple, sleek and polished look. It complements evening wear or casual outfits and stores all your essentials easily with its fold-over flap.

Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Clutch, $195

If you’re a Jill of all trades, this clutch is perfect for you. We love this Rebecca Minkoff bag for its soft leather make and its utilitarian style. Its five zippered pockets (yes, five!) holds your small valuables in each individual pocket. The detachable strap also transforms your clutch into a shoulder bag.

Angela-Franchi Handbag in Wine, $94

Smooth satin and rosebud detail at the center are what make this Franchi clutch a great accessory for evening wear. Wine is another fall color and what better way to highlight this trend by gracing your arm or shoulder with this romantic statement piece.

Ombre Concave Side Rectangle Clutch, Overture Judith Leiber, $395

A show-stopping piece, this luxury clutch by Judith Leiber features beautifully-crafted snake-embossed leather with an ombré treatment. The faceted resin bow at the top of the clutch is hard to miss as well as the sparkling band that joins the two crystals.

Whatever your mood, need or even budget, these fall clutches are definite staples in your wardrobe. Go ahead and choose your arm candy now.
