Oversize Clutches

Oversize Clutches
April 2013
Three handbag designers weigh in

Mary Norton
Owner, recreation
“Choose one with a detachable shoulder strap. Gals can often get much more use of their investments if they can be worn as an over-the-shoulder or cross-body bag as well.”

Libby Ganong
Owner, Add Libb Designs
“Use one as a ‘satellite clutch’: place essentials like your phone and wallet inside. Put it in your day purse, and when you head to happy hour, grab the clutch for a more stylish evening-out look.”

Alesya Opelt
Founder, Alesya Bags
“Oversize does not mean you can overstuff. Use this bag to carry your iPad, notebook, or favorite fashion mag. Don’t cram in your makeup bag and disrupt the chicness!”
