So I realized I have written many advice articles on how to find the right dress, whether it is for a special occasion or just for your body type. And I speak an awful lot about accessories for special occasions. Well, Valentine’s Day is coming up, which I consider to be a very special occasion. Many women will be running around finding the right dress, shoes and accessories for that special night.
For dresses, I know you can reference all the material I’ve wrote about in the past, but I figured you’ll probably want to looks your best for V-day, so trade out that mommy bag and get your hands on that clutch! Below I’ll list several of my favorite styles of clutches for your day of love as well as a guide line to shrink your emergency bag into clutch form to take care of any miss haps that might occur!
Wristlet: A wristlet is great because it’s a clutch that has a loop that you can easily slip on to your wrist. It makes it the perfect clutch to go dancing with. You never really have to worry about holding it all the time because it dangles daintily on your wrist.
Envelope Clutch: Constructed to the appearance of a paper envelope with a flap and sleek slim shape. Sometimes this style has a thick band in the back that allows you to slip your hand through to make it easier to grip the clutch. This is a great piece for the theater, a romantic dinner or cocktail event.
Minaudiere: Typically an evening clutch with a hard shell, usually adorned. The great thing about this is it’s traditionally wider then all the other clutches and can often come with a small matching chain that can be tucked into the case itself when not being used on the shoulder.
Case: I consider the case to be a cross between a basic frame clutch and a Minaudiere. I like this clutch because you can fit more in it as opposed to the Minaudiere but still have the firmness and security of not having anything fall out. This clutch is typically adorned.
What to bring:
-Basics: Cell phone, ID any necessary cards.
-Lip gloss: of course to reapply between courses.
-Oil Blotter: when it’s too crowded in one room and you start to get shiny, you’ll thank me.
-2 safety pins and some double stick individuals. You just never know!
Now, you’ll have a great clutch to go with your amazing Valentine’s day look. Hope you All have an amazing one! And remember, stay fabulous!!!
