The Statement Accessory For Summer & WIWT

Morning ladies, today I wanted to talk about a real game changer in terms of an accessory that in my book is an absolute must for summer & can really make the simplest of outfits & that's a statement clutch.  Something that doesn't necessarily have to cost a fortune but that will add a much needed pop of colour & interest to your outfit.  

Now the statement clutch is something I've really come to appreciate over the last couple of years & have slowly been building up my collection.  For regular readers you may recall that when packing for holidays & the necessary capsule wardrobe I'm a huge devotee of taking dresses/jumpsuits as I find it so much easier to take one pieces.  It makes packing a lot quicker, allows me to travel light & most importantly means that instead of having to waste time thinking about what tops to go with skirts/trousers/shorts etc I just need to decide on the number of day & evening dresses I need to take & pick the ones I most want to wear.  And this is where the statement clutch comes into it's own as a simple change of accessories with a different bag can make the same dress look totally different.  You can see how I've used accessories to update my looks whilst away here & here.

So without further ado here's my picks from what's out there on the high street at the moment (please click on image for price & details).

Back to today & I'm going for a bit of full on 'Bet' magic!

So ladies are you a fan of the embroidered/ethnic clutch for summer?  If so are you an avid devotee like myself & constantly looking to add to your collection?  Or perhaps you're still unsure & wonder what all the fuss is about.  If you haven't already tried a statement clutch I can highly recommend them, not only are they a great game changer, they're brilliant for updating your wardrobe & breathing new life into an existing look.  I'll certainly be packing a few to take away this summer & in the meantime bringing them out to play on nights out.

As always I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Enjoy your day & I'll see you in the morning.
