Envelope clutches have been a huge handbag trend over the past year. The envelope style clutch in particular has been gaining popularity both on the runway and on the street. This classic handbag style has taken on a modern and fresh look for the fall 2012 season.
For fall 2012 the envelope clutch is free of detachable shoulder straps and offers an ever-so-slightly-slouchy silhouette. The slouchiness of envelope clutches for the fall 2012 season offers a fine line between fall 2011’s ultra-soft and slouchy silhouettes and fall 2010’s structured, classic frames. The envelope clutch for fall 2012 is right in between the two styles and offers more versatility than one over the other.
Fall 2012’s envelope clutches can easily breeze from day into night; as well as from casual dress to dinner attire. Envelope clutches for fall are being shown in every fabrication imaginable including leather, exotic skins, nylon, faux leather and vegan fabrics.
The color palette is vast and offers something for everyone. Envelope clutches for fall are being shown in every color of the season including classic autumn hues such as mustard, orange, red, chocolate brown and black as well as on-trend shades of purple, fuchsia, Tangerine, cobalt and green.
The envelope clutch is a great investment handbag since the silhouette is classic and the lines are clean. Envelope clutches will not dominate an outfit and can easily blend into the background while complimenting an ensemble.
If the envelope clutch is a trend you just want to test out, then this is one trend to look for in the handbag departments at Target and affordable stores. If you LOVE clutches and know this is a style and trend you plan to rock daily this fall season, as well as into the future, then look for a high quality investment handbag from Lanvin, Balenciaga and Givenchy. Happy shopping and stay fabulous
