Go Big, Or Go Home! 10 Oversized Clutches Perfect for Day or Night

For an evening out on the town, it’s only natural to reach for your favorite clutch to complete your look. Yet, this spring, sporting an oversized clutch during the daytime has gained popularity and in turn, has transitioned into becoming the new “it” bag for evening as well. This big trend forces us to rethink our traditional views on the clutch’s usual compact style. In fact – at least for most of us – a compact daytime bag is counterproductive. The oversized clutch is roomy enough for those important files you need for work and chic enough to carry while grabbing drinks with friends. With an oversized clutch you can literally carry-all!

Choose your favorite oversized clutch from our picks of varying design and budget.

Slot Through Portfolio Clutch, ASOS – $35.81

A pop of turquoise is always welcomed! This clutch is great for work thanks to its portfolio resemblance. A chiffon blouse and cotton trousers would be so haute when paired with this clutch! Add a bold necklace and you and your clutch are ready for dinner!

Big Mike Clutch, Nasty Gal – $78

Different shades of pink and purple are lovely on this fabric clutch. It has a very laid back feel, but is still unique in its pattern. It’s cute with jeans or try ‘print on print’ with a printed maxi dress.

Muze Oversized Stripe Clutch, Nordstrom – $148

Stripes are huge for spring! A clutch in classic black and white stripes will amp up any outfit! The gold grommets are a nice detail as well. This one is nautical and gives us a preppy vibe. Love it!

Zipped Colorblock Clutch, Nasty Gal – $40.60

This is for the patent leather lovers out there! The color-blocking is so modern and the silver and neon pink play off of each other nicely. A touch of color and shine is just what your outfit is missing!

Large Envelope Clutch in Yellow Boa, Revolve Clothing – $129

You will definitely make a statement with this bright yellow clutch by J.J. Winters! The boa print adds texture and interest to an already eye-catching color. Be bold and wear with a bright red dress or let this clutch be the main attraction and keep the rest of the outfit muted.

Daytime Clutch Bag, Zara – $49.90

This bag is actually color-blocked (see here). The coral is bright and looks great with the brown. The thin strap gives you the option to let the clutch hang from your wrist. Versatile and cute!

‘Mega Parcel Oversized’ Metallic Clutch, Nordstrom – $136

Add a little shine to your outfit with this Foley + Corinna clutch. It’s structured and glamourous at the same time, which makes it perfect for work. Dress up your office attire and head to happy hour right after!

Black/Stone Side Bar Clutch, Dorothy Perkins – $27

This luxe clutch will go with everything! The faux black leather and stone snakeskin flap are neutral, but still pop! Jeans or a little black dress would both work with this one.

Weave Metal Bar Clutch, Asos – $53.72

The weave detail of this clutch really makes it stand out. Plus, the pretty purple shade just SCREAMS spring! This one will look gorgeous paired with other pastel colors. We’re thinking a mint sundress and brown sandals. Cute!
