THE POLARISING CLUTCH TREND.

 

This was supposed to be a post about race wear and the standout trends we noticed sweeping the Melbourne Cup Carnival this year but to be honest this one goes way beyond trackside fashions. The humble clutch came back round the fashion merry go round and popped back on the style radar a little while ago now (like a decade or so) but lately, this little pocket rocket seems to be the chosen accessory for adding a solid punch of expression to any outfit. Whether the polarising clutch is paired with conservative lines to balance the bland or as the pièce de résistance on an equally expressive ensemble we are loving capturing this dynamite trend. Here is an homage to those we spied at Flemington this year. xx
