Trend Alert: An oh-so-simple clutch 

Hands up who’s tired of carrying an overflowing tote? Or who suffers from sore arms after carrying your bag around in the crook of your arm? (C’mon, we all know it happens).

Chic and minimal, nothing says “fashion editor” quite like a pochette stocked with only the essentials – phone, cards, lipstick and perfume. It’s always designer, always black, and always simple. And there’s definitely no more carrying it nestled into your arm, this season it’s more about nonchalantly swinging it like a purse. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to downsize…
