Details Details: Statement Clutches & Serious Sparkle
Sure, the “little black dress” is to cocktail parties what SJP is to Hollywood – an icon so legendary the initials say it all. And while the LBD is a perennial favourite when holiday soirees roll around, dominating our early winter social calendars, the au courrant accessory du jour is the LBC—the little bold clutch. Whether you pair it with a raven-hued body-con mini, a black tie-worthy onesy, or on trend white monochrome dress, a statement clutch lets you stand out from the crowd no matter how understated the rest of your ensemble happens to be.
There’s no better way to take a subdued look to the next level than by rocking a LBC with serious sparkle factor. Even classic black, merlot, and navy clutches take on an added dose of glam when they’re covered rhinestones. While metallic pink gives a traditional cocktail clutch instant haute couture-meets-punk points, even hand purses in taupe can take on a rocker chic proportions when they glitter. Two and three toned handbags let you sparkle in more than just one bold hue, and while monochrome metallic clutches in golds and silvers have seen their fair-share of red carpets since the early days of Old Hollywood, a golden-hued LBD with the party greeting, “Cheers,” emblazoned on the front adds a cheeky element of surprise and playfulness to your look. For serious fashion daredevils, opt for a LBC shaped like a sexy perfume bottle – you’ll literally be holding your conversation starter in the palm of your hand.
