Warm Weather Wicker
For warm spring and summer nights your bulky leather handbags that you toted around all winter simply won't do. Wicker, a material previously reserved for screen porch furniture is reinvented for the season in the guise of feather-weight clutches that come in a variety of colors and textures. Lighten up with one of these luxe straw clutch options from Kotur or Anya Hindmarch. The Bright Wicker Clutch by Kotur comes in a selection of beachy hues to match your sun dress or sarong, and the slightly fancier Purple Weave Clutch (that comes with a thin gold chain link strap attached in case you tend to leave your clutch on restaurant banquets like I do) will look gorgeous at any evening soiree in the city. Neutral colored yet undeniably elegant picks include Hindmarch's straw Five Stone Clutch inlaid with ocean-blue stones and Kotur's Lind Clutch with a striking jade and tiger's eye clasp. Vivre.com features a multitude of stunning clutch options (including the ones I mentioned above) in an array of materials, colors, and shapes, making it difficult to choose just one. Luckily, clutches don't take up too much closet space and conveniently you can store them in your big winter handbags.
