The Box Clutch: Hot or Not?

Posted by Hafsa | Friday October 15, 20106 comments
Cute, small, practical and fashionable, the box clutch seems to be the new must-have for evening events.

For Chanel's Fall 2010 RTW fashion show, Karl Lagerfeld accessorized some of the runway models with this cute "ice box" clutch...

...and Hollywood's on board, too. Sweetly stylish and not weighed down by a bulky tote?  Win-win.
Ashley Greene, Salma Hayek, Vanessa Hudgens, Sienna Miller

We love the handle of this Alexander McQueen box clutch...but if you don't want to splurge, this River Island piece is a great bargain!
Alexander McQueen US$2,284, River Island Silver Ring Handle Box Clutch US$48

Check out the rest of these glam box clutches...many also come with a removable chain strap!
Franchi Judi Silk Clutch, US$168
Moyna Velvet Box Frame Clutch, US$162
Klutched Ko Lanta, US$289
River Island Black Corded Box Clutch, US$48
Topshop Small Fabric Box Bag, US$60
Halston Heritage Evening Frame Leather Box Clutch, US$58
Friis Company Snakeskin Box Clutch, US$53
Love Thy Bag Black Sequin Heart Box Clutch, US$24

What do you think about the trend? Is the box clutch on its way to becoming a fashion staple or just a passing fad?

Same. I carry my entire life with me in my bag! What makes it worse is that I always carry my purses on my right shoulder, which is causing some aches and pains.

BUT I can also stand to carry a tiny little clutch for a night :) I agree with Cathy, the finger holes make it so much easier!

I'm with mamaluv, I love them, but could never use one.
I carry way to much for a clutch.
My mom is always asking me if I have bricks in my bag it's that heavy.LOL

I love the look but the concept is very wrong for me. I just have too much I need to tote around, even if it's an evening out. Cell phone, lipstick, wallet (yes, I have to have the whole thing - not just a $20 bill and my ID), keys, contact lenses, emergency tampon - yeesh. Would never work for me :(

I want so many of these I don't even know where to start! I agree with Cathy about the finger holes. Makes it so much easier to hold on to.

Big fan of this look - it's definitely here to stay! I'm completely sold on the finger holes on the McQueen and River Island ones
