Sometimes during the summer, I want something over-the-top. I want some complicated, colorful, and statement-making. Other times, though, I just want something season-appropriate to carry my junk while my outfit does the talking (I am, after all, a big fan of patterned summer dresses). In those instances, something like the Zambos & Siega Brigitte Oversized Clutch is perfect. At 14 inches wide, it’s plenty large to hold everything you could need to put into it, and it’s got a convenient handle for carrying during the daytime.
Straw is one of those magical fabrics that, when carried during the correct time of year, matches whatever with which it is paired. A good straw clutch will get you a long way during warm weather and is essential for anyone that goes out often at night. A lot of bigger-name brands will charge you hundreds of dollars for one, but there’s really no reason to pay all that – this adorable one is available through ShopBop for a mere $130.
