13 Dress-Up Clutches: Because You Can't Carry Your Lipstick In Your Bouquet

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Whether you're a guest, a bridesmaid, or the one actually doing the knot-tying, there are very few weddings for which an over-the-shoulder bag is going to work. Which is fine, considering the array of amazing clutches out there. The perfect LBD you found for the BFF's wedding, for example, gets that much more interesting when you add a pop of color or sculptural element from Betsey Johnson or DVF. The bag can also function like jewelry when it's bedecked with shiny stones, like an ultra-glam splurge from Lanvin, or a vintage-y pouch from David's Bridal. For all your iPhone-stashing needs, we present 13 of our favorite clutches in the gallery above.—Julie Chen
