Those of you who are serious about their vintage attire just know that a vintage clutch is an absolute must have. It doesn't matter what the occasion, vintage clutch bags will enhance your retro clothing and complete the desired look.

Fortunately there is no shortage of glamorous or casual vintage clutch bags available online- the only difficulty is deciding which ones to choose. Take at look at these beautiful accessories. I challenge you to choose just one!

Wear a Vintage Clutch Anyway you Choose.

Vintage clutches and purses have to be the most versatile of accessories. Not only do they come in a range of styles which are appropriate for the most glamorous of occasions, or low key events, they can also be worn in a number of different ways. 

A vintage purse can be worn under the arm, used with a small, discreet handle or chain, or held casually in one's hand. Nevertheless, whichever way you decide to wear your much loved vintage accessory, it will always lend that touch to class to the occasion.

Vintage Evening Clutch.

Soft Exterior.

Jewels and beads are often featured on our favourite vintage clutch bags, they really add that red carpet look and show the world that you have chosen a vintage inspired style for the event. But, clearly, they are also functional. You may not have much to carry around; money, keys and perhaps a lipstick, but small as they are a clutch can hold a surprising amount. You might want to opt for a purse which has a soft exterior, however, if holding your cell phone or other breakable items you can choose a purse with a hard exterior to protect your belongings, and the good news is, they still look fabulous. 

Stylish and sophisticated sum up this stunning purse made by My Gift. Rhinestones, beads and sequins are used to create a lovely rose design on the front of the clutch which is also made from satin and fully lined. Although the purse has a clasp closure, there is a detachable chain which means that it can be worn in a number of ways, including across the body. There is a small pocket on the inside of the purse which is suitable for holding cash or credit cards and the clutch is available in two colours; rich emerald green or a deep purple.

If it's bling that you're looking for then the Vintage Flare bag by J. Furmani has it all. The bag is available in a gold or silver fabric which, when catches the light, gives off a wonderful sparkle. The top of the bag is framed by an attractive, jeweled closure and then a clip fastening completes the look. The purse is available with two detachable chain lengths of 7 and 22 inch drop, which makes the clutch extremely versatile. A small slip pocket can be found inside the purse which also contains a satin lining.

if you're looking for the 'wow' factor and are prepared to spend a little more, then the vintage crystal rhinestone clutch, pictured below left, simply cannot be overlooked. The purse is entirely covered with shiny, bright crystal rhinestones which are certain to catch an onlookers eye and prompt many a compliment. This purse is ideal for special occasions or where glamour and sophistication are demanded. The accessory is finished with a beautifully crafted jeweled closure, and the purse features an interior pocket and satin lining. Beautiful! 

Less expensive but equally as stunning is the small evening clutch bag with Swarovski crystals by Blingsoul pictured above right. This petite little clutch is chic, elegant and highly unusual, perfect for creating an impression on a special or high occasion. The purse is a semi circular shape and embellished with multi-coloured crystals. An optional shoulder chain is included with the bag and the interior is lined with velvet. 

Vintage Evening Clutches with Firm Handle or Wristlet.

Some women prefer a bag to have a firmer handle, or even wristlet handle, or prefer to have that option when it comes to evening clutch bags. If that's the case, you may want to check out some of the stunning purses pictured below. All have a soft exterior and are more than suitable for evening occasions or to jazz up a casual outfit. Some are also available in a range of colours and designs.

Hard Exterior Vintage Evening Clutch Bags.

You may or may not want to carry breakable items in your new evening clutch, or it might be that you're carrying items which could be crushed leading to leaking or damage, such as foundation, moisturiser or lip gloss.

If that's the case, a hard shelled evening purse will protect any items that you are carrying and will ensure that you can avoid any damage or spills. 

Hard exterior evening clutches are available in a range of materials, designs and colours. From crocodile skin to rose quartz, leather to metal- the choice is endless.

All have the same thing in common, however, they ooze the glamour and sophistication of bygone decades. 

Vintage Clutch bags for Daytime or Casual Occasions.

If you're looking for a clutch to accessorise daytime or casual wear, or perhaps you have a more conservative taste and prefer to opt for understated evening accessories, then there are a plethora of vintage clutch bags just waiting to be chosen..

The array of styles, designs, fabrics and sizes recreate a look belonging to other eras and certainly make a statement. You may just want to carry a few items in which case a number of designs will be suitable. Or, on the other hand, you might need a clutch which is large enough to hold a notebook and other essential items for work.

They are arn't they. To be honest, I have my eye on a few of them. :)

Lovely bags that will stand out wherever they go. I wouldn't mind one myself.

Hi Sheilamarie,

I definitely have my favourites, some lucky person may get one of these bags for Valentine's. Won't be me I'm afraid, but then I wouldn't mind getting one for Easter. :)

sheilamarie on 01/30/2013

I am also an admirer of these bags. Great Valentine's gift idea.

Hi katie,

They are lovely arn't they. I agree that a really nice clutch can be worn with jeans or a casual outfit to jazz it up a bit. And they also look great with more formal dress too. I think every woman should own at least one clutch bag! :)

Stunning clutch bags. I love these types of bags. I wear them when dressed up or paired with a semi dress outfit with jeans while out with friends or on a date. :)K

Hi Bethany,

Thank you! I just *knew* it would be too difficult for a lover of bags to choose just one! :)

Hi Jean,

That beaded bag is really eye catching isn't it? I have large bags too, but the problem I find is that I end up filling them with stuff that I don't even need to carry around me. The kitchen sink sometimes! Whereas, if I use a smaller bag I only take what I actually need, which is better all round, especially if it's causing pain and joint problems.

Thanks for stopping by both of you. :)

I am a self confessed handbag addict, but never carried clutches. I saw the lovely picture of the blue, beaded one you chose, and I know what bag I'll be buying next! I've been getting tendonitis for carrying large handbags anyway (also from being on the computer too much :)

Guest on 01/22/2013

These clutch bags are lovely! I think I should invest in one... Or 5 of these! Really awesome article :)

Hi 2uesday,

I think they're a great way to dress up an outfit too, especially like you say if the outfit is plain but classical. Actually, I was thinking when I was writing this page that I'd better there will be lots of women who'd prefer some of these lovely bags to chocolates or flowers on Valentine's Day. :)
