Giving a whole new meaning to the word “clutch,” hand-strap bags are made for grabbing tight. A chic strap across the front of the regular bag means extra security, which makes each one perfect for a night on the town. The end result? Fewer journeys to the booze-soaked ground, and no more slippery shoulder straps as you wiggle across the dance floor.
Just like a regular clutch, styles range from studded to sweet, and are often decked out with chain details to bring a little extra attention to a well-placed logo. Hand-strap clutches have been featured for the past two seasons in both Diane von Furstenberg and Valentino collections, and are slowly making their way mainstream. Because we like to get you ahead of the curve, here are some hot styles you can shop right now. Now get ready to slide your hand into one of these babies — and mean it when you say you’ll never let go (we’ll never forgive you for that one, Rose).
