Clutches used to be more of an evening thing, but we love the idea of wearing them during the day as well. When we don't feel like lugging around our gigantic bags, we're leaning toward a more polished touch via foldover clutches. Thanks to oversized silhouettes and casual chic design, foldover clutches can easily hold all of your essentials and maybe even an extra lip gloss or two. Click the slideshow to see and shop our top 10 picks — like this amazingly luxe red Lanvin clutch — for the Fall season and why we love them in the slideshow.
Just in time for the impending holiday season, we've taken note of the influx of metallic clutches on the red carpet. Case in point: Hollywood cuties Jenna Dewan, Camila Alves, and Nicole Richie were all recently spotted holding their own shimmery renditions at various red carpet events. Jenna matched her gold box clutch with an equally sparkly Edition by Georges Chakra at Elle magazine's 18th Annual Women in Hollywood tribute. Camila Alves took the vintage route and held a diminutive silver chain clutch paired with a cute polka-dot dress. Meanwhile, Nicole contrasted her metallic pewter leather clutch with a dark brown floral maxidress from Douglas Hannant. If you're looking to maximize your metallic clutch investment, we suggest you wear them with jeans, a tee, and a tweed blazer for a chic daytime look.

The start of a new year brings a great opportunity to reflect — we can look back on what we accomplished, and make resolutions for the coming 12 months. I always look forward to cleaning out the old closet and making room for fresh new pieces.

We all know a gal — or, ahem, happen to be a gal — with expensive taste. She's fancy, traipsing around town in Louboutins, partying in Prada, and always with her eye on the high-priced prize.

Jessica Szohr left for the night with more than sweetie Ed Westwick in tow. What caught my eye is her super slick architectural envelope clutch. We introduced you to the envelope clutch a while back, but the architectural variety is a little more exaggerated. The style's just as elegant and sleek, and we love the look of it with embellishment (à la Jess) or in prints and pops of color. It's like toting a little love note to style.
