No matter the occasion, a white clutch bag is the perfect accessory to see you through the summer season in 2023. Whether you’re heading to brunch with your girlfriends, a garden party, a wedding, or rooftop cocktails, there’s nothing like a crisp white handbag to complete your look. Keep reading to find out how to style it to perfection this summer.
Why did you choose a white bag in summer?
When it comes to the warmer seasons, a white bag is always our first choice for accessorizing. Our summer wardrobes tend to revolve around a lighter color palette of pastels and bright shades which white pops wonderfully against. We tend to avoid black bags in the summertime as they can really weigh down a summer outfit, as well as attract heat. White is a clean, pure color that is well suited to events like weddings and wedding parties that are popular in the summer season too.
How to choose a white clutch?
When it comes to choosing a white clutch bag, there are a few things to consider here we are discussing:
- Size: For a bag that can be multipurpose, we suggest something small to medium sized. This way you will be able to go from brunch to the beach, or office to the bar with ease.
- Style: Consider a bag that has an optional shoulder strap for more multi wear options. For formal events, you can tuck the strap away, and for brunch or office where you can use the shoulder chain.
- Material: Consider an acrylic of faux leather material that will suit most occasions from daytime events to formal events. Whilst beading and sequins might work well for weddings, they are a little over the top for brunch or office wear.
