The little black clutch needs no introduction. It's the ultimate go-to piece: reliable, sleek, classic and chic, with the ability to look right at home with everything from denim to a sexy evening dress. We've rounded up four that we love, all with a hint of a twist - something to break them out of their molds and give them that little extra something.
Michael Kors always delivers the goods! From his MICHAEL collection, the Jet Set Berkley Clutch ($198) is made from extra-soft, textured, python-embossed leather for a fierce look. Finished with a silver cut-out handle that almost seems stamped on, it's the ultimate in inarguable chic.
Combining simple pebbled black leather with crackle-effect gold and black leather, this Cole Haan Zoe Haircalf Clutch ($247.50) is a worthwhile investment. Not only is it beautiful, it also features practical details, including multiple card slots and a spacious interior to hold the day's essentials with ease.
Gentle pleats on each side transform this Kate Spade Evening Belles April Clutch ($228) into a real work of art. The epitome of effortless sophistication, April is that go-to evening bag you'll reach for time and time again.
If your tastes are more edgy than refined, you'll appreciate the toughened up vibe this DKNY Croco Leather Clutch ($155) offers. The embossed leather immediately gives it a little edge in that department, but it's the little gilded door-knocker detail and slinky chain that really sets it apart from the rest.
