Yes, we know that the weather is less than spring like, but there are a couple of very important things to bear in mind. Firstly, it’s good that there is so much rain because it justifies all the money you spent on coats and fleece-lined leggings a couple of months ago. Secondly, all those drought warnings suddenly don’t seem so scary. Thirdly, the weather can’t stay like this forever. So why not dream of drowsy sunlit days and choose your perfect clutch for Spring, whenever it decides to return?
1. Alexander McQueen, De-Manta Leopard Clutch; £315, Motilo.com
This sexy badboy is one of those clutches which is sure to get you noticed. The characteristic McQueen shape will be spotted a mile off, and the oversized leopard print makes it glamorous for the evening as well as practical for the day.
2. Stella McCartney, Pembridge woven wicker-effect satchel; £735, Motilo.com
You can take this tangerine dream pretty much anywhere, thanks to a handy little shoulder strap. With McCartney working her usual sports luxe look, the bright orange wicker stylings can fit into a minimal white outfit or a busy warm floral.
3. Serpui Marie, Marrakesh Minaudiere; £119, Motilo.com
Even if you’re not lucky enough to be witnessing a tropical sunset in real life, thanks to this stunning dyed straw clutch, you can take one around with you. The vibrant colours and bold tassel make it a great statement to go with your LBD.
4. Carven, Tribal jacquard clutch; £340, Motilo.com
Carven, Carven, Carven. Do they ever get it wrong? The warm berry and lemon shades in the tribal print can make this bag the focal point of a casual outfit. Are you popping out for a quick lunch in jeans and a blouse? Forget the handbag, just pop your phone, cards and keys in this clutch and away you go.
5. Angel Jackson, Foldover clutch; £259, Motilo.com
There’s something about the delicious, vibrant texture of this foldover clutch that makes us think of cocktails and key lime pie. It’s roomy enough to keep all your essentials, and yet begs to be taken out on the town. The bold colour and lack of hardware make it perfect for colour-blocking, so wear it with a clashing outfit.
6. Anya Hindmarch, Ipanema straw and raffia oversized clutch; £495, Motilo.com
If you’re going to a garden party there’s only one clutch choice this season. The straw and raffia details on this Anya Hindmarch are amazingly Americana. With wedges, a floaty maxi, and tousled locks you can totally channel some ’70s chic.
7. Muzungu Sisters, Vera clutch; £180, Motilo.com
Now we move onto the chilled out beach party. As well as looking super cool, this silk straw Muzungu Sisters bag is amazingly sturdy, and no amount of sand or sea can make it look shabby. The interior cotton lining also protects your contents from spilled drinks and all the other fun/irresponsible behaviour that ensues at a soiree.
8. Charlotte Olympia, Pandora feather perspex box clutch; £525, Motilo.com
This Charlotte Olympia is a little more red carpet. Firstly, the nature of perspex means that even if you drop it down 60 flights of stairs, your iPhone will remain intact. Perfect for those who are planning on drinking more than one glass of champagne at an event. Also, the delicate peachy feathers are a subtle way to bring another dimension to a statement dress, or to enhance something more minimal.
9. Versus, Vinyl and Leather clutch; £370, Motilo.com
Hello retro! This is for all the chic hipsters out there with a bit of cash to spend. The fastening has some stylish hiking connotations with the click-in buckle and chunky toggle zip but the bubblegum pink vinyl ensures that this is strictly a fashion accessory.
10. Calvin Klein, Python document holder; £755, Motilo.com
Finally but not frumpily, the ultra sleek Calvin Klein. This oversized clutch is actually a document holder. Are you the girl who runs into a meeting with papers flying or an old folder that has been relabelled so many times that the original colour can no longer be seen? Maybe it’s time to invest in something more respectable. This A4 sized python clutch will garner a new kind of respect. In the parlance of our times: like a boss.
