Style on a Budget: The All-Occasion Clutch

Jan 25 2013 • by Deanna

With the many clutch choices available, we sometimes get tempted to buy a new one every time the occasion calls for it. But if you’re penny-pinching and looking for a clutch that’s versatile enough to match any of your outfits, all you need is just one clutch.

Parisian style blogger Lydia of The Black Feather shows us how a red envelope clutch can be a practical choice. You really cannot go wrong with a red clutch as it adds a tinge of color when worn with even the simplest of ensembles. See how she styled her red envelope clutch to match her outfits:

One sleek and stylish clutch can truly go a long way, so it’s better to purchase one that’s made of quality materials. While red is a favorite color, black, beige and brown clutches are also practical pieces because they can be easily mixed and matched with any outfit.

We found some red clutches at different price points which you might like. If you don’t want to break the bank, this clutch is budget-friendly yet durable enough to last many outfit changes:
