We keep saying that these are the times to shop smart… Fashion excess and signature trends have subsided and classic looks are on the front cover. That’s how any fashionable girl should be thinking right now… and that’s why we searched for this season must-have item that will carry you from fall to winter and beyond. The essential Little Black Clutch is the passe-partout a girl needs to smarten up every outfit and any occasion. From splurge to steal, we have included: the knuckleduster Alexander McQueen clutch for the die-hard fashion fans – you can consider it an art investment in memory of the great designer – to the always classics knotty Bottega Veneta and satin Lanvin, to the romantic pleated clutch by Valentino Garavani. Our final pick is the our steal of the day and the edgier with Jimmy Choo‘s Nini, if you’re looking for a bolder or rockier look.
