Though the box clutch ( aka minaudieres, if you want to get technical) may be small in size they make a big and chic fashion statement. This year’s award show red carpets were sprinkled with all different sorts of box clutches from ultra-embellished to sleek and simple.  Celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Kerry Washington, Emily Blunt, Kate Beckinsale, Emma Stone, Julianne Hough and Emma Roberts have all recently rocked adorable box clutches both on and off the red carpet.  We are totally on the box clutch bandwagon, and though you may be a little fearful of tossing aside your giant carry-all, the box clutch is perfect for those date nights when you don’t need to carry everything but the kitchen sink with you, as well as for those quick errands when you only need your phone and wallet.

If you want to rock the trendy box clutch with a casual outfit then we suggest pairing a light wash pair of cuffed jeans with a pair of nude sandals and a simple white t-shirt, and then add a neon box clutch to the mix for the perfect pop of color. For a more festive box clutch look we suggest opting for one that has some sort of metallic embellishment, like studs, metal side panels or even the super cool brass knuckle handles that have become super popular recently.

Try The Trend Tips

The box clutch trend is a super fun alternative to the massive tote that us ladies carry around some times and to make sure you master this trend here are a few tips.

You can opt to make your clutch “pop” or allow it to blend in with the rest of your outfit, if you decided to wear an understated outfit than go for a super bold statement clutch. However, if you are already wearing a bold print or bright color than opt to keep the clutch super simple.

Some clutches can be a little awkward to hold all night long, so make sure to fiddle around with it a little before you buy it.
