When you hear the phrase “less is more” as it relates to accessories in fashion, what ideas come to mind? Common adjectives to describe bags and shoes — minimal, modern, clean — are the typical buzz words you probably attach to your favorite accessories that keep things simple.

Then again, there’s another way of thinking about the notion of presenting “less” to the world, by considering that sometimes only “less” is needed. Truth be told, the perfect fashion statement can be made with an accessory that’s miniature in size.

Following this logic, every woman should have one item in constant rotation through their wardrobe: the perfect clutch.

Whether carried alone or paired with a handbag that’s by default a little larger, the perfect clutch carries what’s essential to our lives during any given outing, and for that reason it’s deeply personal. In this way, it can instantly take on the identity of an heirloom in the making. It becomes the item we carry on first dates and at tailgates and during quiet moments, when a quick jaunt to grab coffee is what’s needed most in life.

For an option that’s contemporary and classic all the same, check out our Saffiano Continental Clutch. The Pebble Grain Zip Clutch is an option for carriers who cherish a textured leather finish.

And at Dooney & Bourke, we’ve placed a value not only on what’s considered a clutch in the classic sense, but also on women's wristlets and wallets, which carry a similar appeal. Our Florentine Large Zip Around Wristlet is one of our best selling items, known for its versatility and functionality all the same.

The perfect clutch shouldn’t be hard to stumble upon. We want to help you make memories, holding something that you love in your hands.
