I know it is January (A.K.A. the dead of winter). Spring and summer are the farthest things from most people’s minds. Yet, many designers are already releasing (or will very soon) their collections for those warmer weather months. That means bright colors and summer-ready materials like canvas and straw. Although these pieces are strictly seasonal, they can still be a lot of fun to own. The trick is to look for more affordable pieces. Right now I am really liking the Rebecca Minkoff Billy Woven Straw Clutch ($295)! Not only is it affordable, it’s really cute too!
What I find most appealing about this clutch is the fact that it is sturdy. The straw is tightly woven around a structured frame featuring two halves that are hinged together. Securing this clutch closed is a leather flap with a round metal snap. The look is very simple, but also very chic. That is what I love about this clutch. You get the benefit of a fun, seasonal accessory without feeling too over-the-top or trendy. The colors available are really nice too (turquoise and persimmon). They are summery, but still a little subdued. That makes this clutch much more versatile, allowing it to fit in nicely with the rest of your wardrobe.
