There are a few very clear things I like in a clutch: a low price, a versatile shape and genuine materials. Since clutches are the least often used of the bags in my collection, they need to be price-effective and functional, but I also don’t like to buy pleather just for the sake of my wallet. Luckily, the ASOS Oversized Portfolio Clutch fits all my criteria.
Most people assume that fast fashion stores don’t carry anything made out of real leather, but ASOS is something of an exception. The British retailer’s pieces range from very low to somewhat high-end, and their bags have a similar continuum of prices and materials. These generously proportioned bags in particular are made out of leather, and they’re big enough to carry day or night. The lines are just traditional enough to make everyone wonder where you picked them up, and they won’t go out of style for years, if ever. Buy through ASOS for $95.
