Summer Must Have Eye Popping Clutches-FAB Trend Spotlight

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Summer is all about beach side lounging, Shakespeare in the park, outdoor concerts, and bottomless mimosa brunches. These action packed albeit inherently laid back activities require the accompaniment of an equally action packed and eye popping summer clutch. Here are some of my favorite styles that will take you from day to those endless summer nights in a clutch!

Neon Yellow is my current color obsession. The pop of "all eyes on me" color in a clutch gives an outfit, no matter how simple, instant fashion cred. It's oh-so chic paired with a crisp palette of whites and blues. Adoration awaits.

Animal Print clutches brings a level of untamed sophistication to any outfit. Contrary to popular belief, a flash of animal print can be worn with almost any color combination. But definitely try it with scarlet shades of red as the layered effect will create drama and international intrigue.

Tribal Print hits it out of the ballpark for me. The geometric shapes and imaginative color schemes redefine the clutch category. Because it attracts so much attention on its own, it naturally serves as the color centerpiece to an outfit. However, if you're in a ballsy mood, try pairing a tribal print clutch with patterned pieces like deep florals, laser prints, or stripes. If executed strategically, the seemingly mismatching of prints and colors will make for a knockout outfit worthy of sartorial analysis.
