Cutest Clutches Under $100 — and Money Left to Spend!
We’ve all been there. Splurge on a designer bag and then plunge yourself into fashion famine for a few months. While we love a good clutch (designer or not), it’s tough to justify spending on something that you might not use as often as a satchel or tote. So instead of splurging on a statement clutch, we suggest snagging one (or perhaps, two) of these cuties guilt free. So have your clutch and fill it, too!
For fans of: the Balenciaga City bags and Rebecca Minkoff Mac cross-body bags
It’s tough to carry a bag while you’re speeding on your motorcycle, so opt for the Zara Martin for Made Kips Whipstitch Clutch ($76.64). Produced in cooperation with British TV host Zara Martin and Made, an organization that teaches Kenyan women business skills as well as sustainable employment, this clutch is an all-around, feel-good staple.

For fans of: Tory Burch’s layered leather bags, Theysken’s Theory carryalls
Soft, supple leather has a tactile allure that’s yummy, but with layers of deep, oxblood leather, the Collina Strada Ricco Leather Pouch ($88) looks much more luxe than your average night-out clutch. The simple, straightforward design lets you keep your essentials in hand with a little room to spare for an extra lipstick or two. When you’re not using it on its own, it makes a great bag-in-bag for loose ends inside any of your bigger bags.

For fans of: Jimmy Choo’s structured minaudieres, DVF’s signature Lytton hard-sided clutches
The Betsey Johnson Neon Neon Gem Clutch ($82.99) is a huge statement contained in a tiny package. Our editor-in-chief, Michelle, loves structured minaudieres, so it’s no stretch to think she’d be seen around town sporting this candy-like confection of a bag.

If you need something that does double duty, the BCBG Max Azria Lula Python-effect Suede Clutch ($98) offers two looks in one bag.

For something sleek and classic, the Banana Republic Camilla Frame Clutch ($59.50) gives a major Mad Men meets luxe uptown lady vibe. Its classic shape looks vintage without being stuffy and its clean lines could be pulled from the latest collections. And while it might look a little plain, fall’s statement coats don’t need the competition of an attention-grabbing clutch.

For fans of: Herve Leger bags, Bottega Veneta’s woven leather
The Topshop Slashed Leather Clutch Bag ($76) gives a huge dash of badass to any outfit. It’s pristine meets punk, prim and improper all at once. The textural leather treatment gives the sometimes-prissy clutch an anything-but-ordinary look that’ll stand out from the crowd. (The included strap means this convertible clutch is perfect for music festivals and outdoor outings). Pair it with any of your chubby knits this fall and denim cutoffs when it warms up again next year. You don’t have to put this baby away after Labor Day!
