Clutches may be small in size, but they can be pretty big in their impact. Case in point: Cinderella star Lily James brought the fairy tale to life when she channeled her inner princess in a decadent Elie Saab gown, complete with a whimsical Charlotte Olympia clutch cloaked as a clock face, its hands at the stroke of midnight.
And Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams upped her spring-ready street style game when she accessorized her leafy print pieces with a darling Kate Spade wicker frog ($398; katespade.com). Finally, style savant Solange Knowles injected a dash of playful eccentricity with Stella McCartney's Lucha Libre purse.
Give your ordinary minaudieres a break and add elements of whimsy (or comically cute) to your closet of clutches. One thing's for sure: These novelty statement-makers put the purse in purse-onality.
