Chic Oversized Clutches - When Size Matters

by Kerry Pieri/StyleCaster
07.23.2010

You've given us no choice but to fall into clichés: Sometimes ladies, bigger is just better. An oversize clutch, especially of the luxury sort, lends a particular level of chic that can't be denied.

In right-now python, buttery suede or summery raffia, a large clutch may be a bit of an investment, but when it's meant to replace your tired day bag, who can complain. Plus, a clutch with inches to spare just makes us look thinner in comparison. Consider it a perk.
