Heading out with your girlfriends for some cocktails and dancing? Then you don’t want to have to lug around your full-sized handbag for the day. Instead, swap it out for one of these smaller-sized but no-less-practical clutches that will keep all your essentials safe and sound for the whole night.
Make sure you choose something not just flattering to your outfit, but well and truly practical. If you need something to carry just your phone and keys — go small. But if you’re someone who needs a few extras (makeup, tissue, a dozen lipsticks or so etc.) go big(ger).
