Clutch 2013 is, first of all, a practical and comfortable thing that you can wear not only with an evening gown. Moreover, women's clutches from the actual collections can be quite capacious in size, which makes them even more suitable for everyday use.

Rectangular and translucent variants are found in the collections of Charlotte Olympia and Burberry. Chanel women's clutch bags are also rectangular in shape, but opaque and bright colors, with a large house logo.

Snake or crocodile skin is another option, actively used on the catwalks in the collections of 2013. Women's clutches with such finishing were presented by Stella McCartney, Jean Paul Gaultier and Oscar de la Renta.
