The official holiday party season is well behind us, but surely the occasion will arise in the next nine months where you'll be wishing you had a chic clutch in your fashion arsenal. Have one of those delightfully unexpected government refund checks heading your way? Invest it in a designer label without making a designer-sized dent; you'll be grateful when your first spring fling rolls around.
Fendi's trademark B buckles get miniaturized on this metallic orange clutch ($826, was $1,180). Zesty citrus hues are in for spring, and this tangerine dream with delicate chain handles is no exception.
Little black dresses never go out of style, so it goes without saying that little black bags are timeless, too. This sophisticated patent clutch from Roberto Cavalli ($945, was $1,350) gets a glam rock twist from its rap star-worthy gold chain handle and cluster of gold and diamond-encrusted charms.
Go for the gold standard with Miu Miu's satin mini clutch ($206.50, was $295). The springy take on gold has a hint of green tint for a dramatic jewel tone effect. Pair it with neutrals when you want your accessories to be your statement pieces, or match with other deep jewel-bright hues for an ultra-luxe look.
