Best of: Clutches for Day

To me, few things look more polished that a woman carrying all of her essentials in a clutch during the daytime. Truth be told, I'm usually the girl with everything spilling out of a giant bag, but I dream of being the woman that's streamlined things down to the essentials. These clutches are a little more casual and a little larger than your average night out with the girls clutch, so they can still hold your important things, but still have that super chic, pulled together look. 

1. Rebecca Minkoff, $330 If your style tends to lean more towards the rocker side, this bag is perfect for you, and if you don't, this clutch will add the right amount of edge to your look. The strap is detachable, which adds versatility- you can carry hands-free when you've got coffee in one hand, phone in the other.
2. Michael Kors, $250 I don't think daytime clutches come more classic than this one from Michael Kors. This gorgeous caramel color leather bag will be in your closet for years to come.
3. American Apparel, $50 Looking for something fun and funky? This American Apparel clutch comes in a rainbow of colors, and makes for the perfect canvas for a fun DIY project.
4. Asos, $36 Leopard may not fly in the office, but this leopard print clutch would be perfect for weekends. The gold hardware and slim shape make this a very streamlined, clean, bag.
5. Clare Vivier, $104 This clutch may be too small for some for day, but the envelope shape is perfect, and with all of the neon and neutral on the runways for Spring 2012, this clutch will be on-trend for several more seasons!

Do you love clutches during the day, or are they a for-night-only staple in your closet?
