The daytime clutch for spring and summer 2012

The daytime clutch became hot in spring of 2011 when it graced the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris. As the year progressed, the trends hit the streets and by fall of 2011 Fashion-savvy women were spotted everywhere carrying medium-sized clutches in daytime fabrications. For the spring 2012 runway shows, the daytime clutch was dominant alongside the double handle satchel and showed the fashion world the trend would still be hot for 2012.

As spring 2012 arrives in stores, the daytime clutch is dominating the handbag department. Daytime clutches are being spotted in medium and small sizes in every fabrication imaginable. While the bulk of the handbags are made from leathers, there are also exotic skins, vegan faux leathers, cork and straw clutches for spring. The biggest trend among all fabrications is that are made in bright and bold colors, as well as being color blocked.

The easiest way to update one’s wardrobe this season is with a bright and bold daytime clutch. While a daytime clutch cannot hold everything and the kitchen sink, daytime versions of this formally evening-only style can easily carry a small wallet, smartphone, keys and lipstick. Look for bright colors such as orange, pink, yellow and cobalt blue. Some designers have even introduced neon shades of green, yellow, orange, pink and blue for the spring season; now that’s bright! Happy shopping, and stay fabulous
