Spring Trend Alert: Day Clutches

03/14/2007 at 03:00 PM ET

Ready to retire your overstuffed tote bag for something a little sleeker? Why not try a day clutch — still big enough to hold all your essentials but chic enough to take you from day-to-night.

We are even giving one away in our Stylewatch Steals (contest ends March 15 at midnight!). Tell us: Would you wear a clutch during the day, instead of a shoulder bag?

I think clutches are great for formal events since they look very classy and don’t distract from your outfit. However, they’re so impractical for everyday use. How are you supposed to carry around a clutch like that?

I don’t really care for her clutch..but where can I get a coat like hers. I absolutely love it! I wonder if its from her LAMB line.

erica on

ditto on the coat! clutch is ugly, coat is fabulous!!

Yes! Finally I have an excuse to use the Burberry flowered clutch I bought last summer…. A steal at $100 dollars (If there’s any Canadians here-check out Holt Renfrew Last Call in Toronto or Winnipeg- dirt cheap stuff :) )

The LAMB clutches are perfect because they convert to a tote bag as well….so you have the option of carrying a lot or a little.

I wish I could carry a clutch, but inbetween my stuff and lugging bay stuff its a no go for me :(

KT from Cda on

Gotta agree, it is ugly. I have a small purse myself b/c I don’t carry a lot in it but I wouldn’t use a clutch. Well, atleast it is better then the giant luggage bag she carries around. I’m a mom too and I leave the diapers and such for the diaper bag instead.

Bravo, Elda! Jam me ty. :-)
