I love clutches, but I can never get everything to fit! What are some key essentials to pack in a clutch for the night?
~ Maggie ~ Hi Maggie!
This has always been a challenge for me in the past, so I can definitely relate! As much as I love the look of a compact bag or bejeweled clutch for a night out, I have to be realistic about what I need, too. No matter how cute a clutch might be, it should have enough room to hold the following (and still be able to snap shut!):
- Phone (If space is really limited, consider taking your phone out of its case for the night.)
- License and credit card
- Mints or gum (Throw two or three sticks in there and keep the pack at home.)
- Tissues (Same deal as the gum.)
- Powder (if room allows) or blotting papers
The idea is that you have everything you need to get from A to B, resources for emergencies, and supplies for touch-ups. If a clutch can hold all of the above, you’re good to go! If not, let’s hope your date has pockets.
Thanks for writing to Style You, Maggie!
