Nothing infuses your look with a touch of glamour quite like a minaudiere. A box clutch is destined for a night out—you know, those nights when all you need to carry is a tube of lip gloss and a credit card. What's nice about minaudieres is that they tend to come in basic colors like silver and gold, which matches with everything in your closet. When accessorizing your look, forget that old rule about not mixing your metals---that's an old taboo.

What's more, this handbag silhouette is more versatile than you may think. There is also something incredibly chic about carrying a box clutch for a more casual occasion. Picture this: boyfriend jeans, statement pumps, a crisp white tee, a mini box clutch. Perfection. The combo packs just the right amount of unexpectedness to your look---and you'll be the envy of all your friends slugging handbags over their shoulders. Plus, you'll get more use out of your buy!
