The humble clutch bag that you literally clutch in the crook of your armpit has had some reincarnations over the years. It was Jacquemus-level microscopic in the ‘20s (flapper girls only needed to tote out cigarettes and a lipstick) boxy-like in the ‘40s (when women really started to get out there) and supersized in the ‘80s when women started having power lunches of their own and wanted to emulate a men’s portfolio.

But in today’s context where women are constantly on the go, the best clutches look good and do good – they need to fit everything we need from day-to-night. From the fun to the fabulous, scroll through for our top 10 picks.
