Clutch situation
The season's most versatile accessory, perfectly paired for any occasion

By JORDAN DECHAMBRE

June 2012

Itís all about the details. And this seasonís go-to fashion accessory is the simple ó yet glamourous ó clutch. Day or night, the shrunken handbag fits all your "canít leave home without it" essentials, and comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, fabrications and colors. This summerís clutches are freshest in glossy neutrals (playing off a chic, colorful wardrobe), posh color-blocking, classic prints (polka dots, stripes and chevron, anyone?), and luxe beading and sequins. Mix and match colors and prints for a fashion-forward summer look.
