Why you need to invest in a statement-clutch ASAP!

By 10:32 Sunday 20 May 2018 , , ,

I love wearing Indian clothes! I always go for separates as there are so many opportunities to mix and match. Repeating an entire outfit becomes super boring so I prefer going for a lehenga skirt that will go with the different crop tops or blouses I own or keeping a couple of dressy dupattas handy to change the look of an old anarkali. Another trick to giving a new feel to an old outfit is wearing it with different accessories. For example, a maang teeka can instantly jazz up any outfit and make it more dramatic. Alternatively, you could also opt for a statement clutch with lighter jewelry {maybe switch the heavy jhumkas you wore it with for a pair of gold ear studs} for an easy evening look. Over the years, I have realized that a good statement clutch can really add a great finishing touch to your ethnic look but it is often the most ignored accessory while shopping.

Most of the time, we end up spending all our shaadi-shopping budget on clothes, matching jewelry and shoes. In my case, clutches have always been an impulse buy and I’ve never consciously shopped designer bags online or offline . But I do admit that a good party clutch not only perks up any outfit but also comes with an important functionality since most of our ethnic outfits don’t have pockets! 

As someone who constantly needs to check my phone, party bags and clutches {especially the ones that come with strings} give me the freedom to fully let my hair down without worrying about misplacing my device or having to request my brother/guy-friends to keep it in their pockets! Also, I always need to carry some of my make up for retouching at the event, especially during the summers. So I cannot even think of stepping out without a clutch. But it’s wise to invest in a unique yet versatile piece that isn’t too specific to one outfit. I would probably prefer neutral tones for this very reason. I would also recommend pre-deciding the size, colour preferences and a budget when you buy clutches online as it will save you a lot of time. I am really feeling small box clutches with elaborate embroideries at the moment. Another cute AF option is an embellished ‘potli’-- lot of designers and websites are offering some really cute potli purses. Case in point, this beautiful zardosi number by Label Amara:

I’ll finish off the post by saying:

- Invest in a good party clutch as it is a glamourous add-on AND comes in handy to carry the essentials including money, phone and make-up.
- Set some design preferences and a budget before you start looking for your perfect clutch
- Go for the one that looks great with both ethnic and western outfits

I would love to show you all the clutches I own in an Instagram post if I am able to shoot them nicely. Until then, hope you enjoyed reading this one! 

See you in the next post.
