We would never go so far to recommend you become a slave to fashion. However, oversized clutches are a snazzy way to punch up your look for winter. Our cell phones are getting bigger after all; what else should be expected of us? Take a look at our favorite outfits for work and play and see how easily a new handbag fits into the mix.

Oversized Clutches in Robin’s Egg Blue

Who needs a little blue box for Christmas when a purse will do? Look for oversized clutches in bright colors to offset winter neutrals. A leather clutch in a contrasting color is a very pretty winter accessory for dresses in satin or silk. Purses in red, blue, and green are just as versatile as your usual brown or black. So change it up!

Girl Gang

Bottega Veneta placed these bags on trend and they are flying into carts near and far. Oversized clutches are the perfect balance of casual and chic. They tell your party of five that you have arrived! Hold one effortlessly in the crook of your arm and tell the paparazzi, “no thanks”. Add a little filtration to this season’s preppy outfits.

Slouchy Neutrals

If you’re the business causal kind of girl that likes to match your bag to your boots, we’ve got you covered. This year’s slouchy, oversize clutches come in buttery neutrals, too. They work in tandem with your knee-high boots and oversized blazer in a practical fashion. We know you need your stuff on hand and purses of this size just make sense.

Weaving Into Winter

There are a few basic styles to choose from besides the slouchy guys. Oversized clutches in soft woven leather are a little more outside of the box. We love them in classic colors like eggshell white and bone. Totally hip to mix in with trench coats and plaid.

Quick + Quilted

You can also rock these in extra exaggerated sizes, depending on how much of a fashion maven you are. Go for large, quilted, oversized clutches as a cool way to play with big and small. Working with neutrals makes this an easy way to create some juxtapositions with your outfit. Since you tend to carry these bags low, we recommend matching them to the color of your slacks or skirt.

Needing a Little Structure

Another way to play with yin and yang is to add a more structured style to an otherwise casual outfit. A black clutch with a wide leather weave adds some lady-like sensibility to a masculine outfit. Also, structured clutches that are larger in size can also double as holders for your tablet. These are perfect for working girls and creative types.

Hang On To One

No need to worry about being hand-free all the time. We like oversized clutches for work and for easy gatherings where you don’t have to keep a close watch on your stuff. They are a fun trend to explore and help add a little light-heartedness to any winter outfit. Just grab it and go!
