The New Twofer: Would You Carry Your Tote as a Clutch?

If there's any surefire way to pinpoint the birth (or resurgence) of a cool-girl fashion trend, it's when we spot it on countless street stylers and A-listers alike. So, what's the latest styling cue on our radar? Totes and shoulder bags being carried as oversize clutches. We've seen everything from a classic quilted Chanel bag to a must-have Proenza Schouler iteration being turned into handheld staples. Why do we love it so much? It's a quick way to punch up an outfit, it adds more versatility to your bag's shelf life, and it offers up a different approach to statement arm candy. While this twofer craze may have started with medium-sized fare (look to Joanna Hillman, at far right, for edgier proof), leave it to Victoria Beckham to supersize the look. On a recent London outing, Victoria turned out one of her most dramatic tote-to-clutch moments yet. You couldn't miss her carrying her oversize colorblock Victoria Beckham bag — as a clutch — in London. And we have a feeling this won't be the last time she takes the look for a spin. In fact, here she is working the look on another recent occasion. With a stylish crew behind the twofer look, we turn it over to you now: would you carry your tote as a clutch?
