All that’s old is new again and you can’t get much more retro than a structured box clutch. Also known as the minaudière, the box clutch is no longer solely for Hollywood’s elite and the red carpet. In fact, the box clutch is perfect for a even a casual night on the town. Yes, we are even saying to carry one while wearing your favorite jeans! For fall 2012, just worry about the essentials because that’s all you will be able to fit in this hard as rock little bag. If you want to wait to find one on sale, do so. The box clutch trend continues into the spring/summer 2013 season as well. Here are 10 box clutches we are coveting now:

    They all look great! My favorites are number 1 and 3, my only problem with clutches like these is that you can’t fit much in them, almost no makeup at all 🙁

  2. This is a keeper! Good info! You put a nice twist to it. Congratulations again on a good job Lauren.
