Give your shoulder a break! See the pattern here from the SS 2012 runways? Carry all types of handbags tucked under a forearm, grab it from underneath – the look is cool and chic. Not just clutch bags but varying shoulder bags, even a large tote.
The little built-in sleeve on the oversized clutch (Phillip Lim) is a smart touch. I also like the look of the metal strap wrapped around the wrist to double it up as a bracelet as seen on the Gucci runway.
Here are a few (of many…) bags I want to clutch right now – Striped Falabella Tote, Brahmin Vivian Polka Dot Dome, Big Buddha Prep, Printed Canvas & Leather Bag! What perfect arm candies for spring and summer. The Big Buddha Prep bag will make a cute daytime clutch with the top portion folded over.
