Finding the perfect clutch bag that is big enough to hold all the debs night essentials while still remaining compact and elegant is a difficult task.

There is a huge array of styles on the high street stretching from finishes like plush leather quilting or a box-like hard shell that won’t weigh you down on the dance floor.

Functional clutches that come furnished with a handy wrist strap are an added bonus to ensure that the night doesn’t end with a broken camera or phone. 

The design of your clutch bag can completely transform your look and act as a major statement piece.

Clusters of embellishments, beading and sequins can make for an eye-catching accessory.

Your clutch can match the shade of your dress if you want a more coordinated look or go for a completely different tone for a bolt of colour.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different prints and snake-skins, especially if your gown is minimalist and elegantly simple.

Mini-envelope and hard-case box clutches are the perfect lightweight pieces for a formal debs night.

We have found some pocket-friendly but glamorous clutch bags from the usual suspects on the high street.
