Fall Trends: The Oversized Clutch

Prada fall 2011 runway

This season’s hottest bag trend is far from hands free, as clutches make a colourful comeback as a fall trend. Oversized clutches in a plethora of bright colours and exotic textures were seen all over the Prada fall runway. And if Prada approves, you know it’s going to be big.


Jak and Jil street style

The key to nailing this look is all in your attitude. Throw the bag under your arm, hold it in your hand, or hug it close. Whichever way you hold it, be sure it’s carried with a sense of nonchalant cool; you have important places to be with your acid bright bag and all the stylish secrets it contains. 


Jil Sander flower clutch

Fall Trends checklist? The bigger and brighter the better. Envelope clutches in bold colours and prints are winners. Inject some brights into sleek neutral outfits with a multi hued digital print zip top clutch. Our pick? This print perfect Jil Sander floral number. Not only does the oversized clutch need to be paired with a simple outfit, a similar minimalistic approach must be taken when packing your bag. Take only what you can carry- Mary Poppins bag ladies need not apply.


ASOS clutches

For the perfect soft rectangle that won’t break the bank try online mecca ASOS. Their range of bright envelope clutches in delicious supple turquoise or red leather are swoon worthy (and friendly on the wallet). For evening, try the slightly smaller, but no less attention grabbing, pink or yellow gold buckle envelope bag. Haven’t visited the new Sydney Zara store yet? Their oversized orange leather clutch might get you there. With a detachable chain (for when you need to be hands free) it’s as practical as it is on trend.


One by Comme des Garcons wallets

If the thought of reducing your bag to the bare essentials has you running for the hills, never fear, inject the colour pop into more practical items like your wallet or laptop cover. Keep your beloved belongings in their shouldered surroundings, and show off your electric blue purse instead. Our fall trends pick? These One by Comme des Garcons blue or orange rectangular zip up wallets.

So clutch yourself and hold on tight as this accessories fall trends works its way into stylish wardrobes the world over.
