Lauren Conrad's Shopping Picks For Clutches

Accessory Report: Daytime Clutch

We are thrilled to share this story from Lauren Conrad! The TV personality, writer, designer, and style maven has started, a social networking site that features daily posts by Lauren on all of our favorite topics — fashion, beauty, food, party planning — and Lauren will be sharing her latest fashion finds with Fab every month. This week, she's giving us an accessory report on daytime clutches to shop now.

While bags and satchels are lovely, there is another carryall that I'm loving as of late: the daytime clutch. Whether I'm off to an afternoon event, a lunch meeting, or even running a few errands, an oversize clutch is a simple way to give a basic look a major dose of fashionable allure. When using a clutch during daylight hours, I prefer bags in neutral tones with some texture. I especially love to carry a clutch when I know that I am going to be out all day and into the night. Clutches transition well into evening settings since they are a bit more dressed up and streamlined. They also tend to have less exposed hardware making them easy to mix and match with various outfits.

When I was in Bali I found the perfect envelope clutch. Super simple with clean lines and great texture. Perfection. I loved the clutch so much that I took my own advice and bought it in every color available (which was a total of 4 colors). I use these clutches all the time. They are a nice size, they're comfortable to hold, and they're especially great for traveling since they take up barely any space. That said I don't expect all of you to travel overseas to find your perfect clutch. There are plenty of lovely options online or even lurking in the back of your closet!
