The Hottest Holiday Clutch Essentials

With the holiday party circuit in full swing—office celebrations, cocktail galas, New Year’s Eve bashes—it’s time to swap those overstuffed handbags for petite clutches. And since these accessories are high on elegance but low on space, we have to choose our touch-up essentials wisely. Here, we’ve paired covetable clutches from Kate Spade with can’t-fail products. There’s an option for every style.

The Party Animal

The Party Animal

Juicy Couture Juicy Couture Rollerball: There are two major downsides to dancing the night away: Your feet take a beating, and your perfume always wears off by midnight. While the former is inevitable, prevent the latter with this handy rollerball.

theBalm Hot Mama: A two-in-one blush and shadow with a subtle shimmer that catches the light in an oh-so-radiant way.

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink: While we might be biased about this sheer fuchsia shade, one thing is true: Nothing says “party” quite like bright pink lips.

Triple C iPhone Case: Don’t let your bag hog all the fun. This bright floral case is equal parts playful and stylish.

Supersmile Powdered Mouthwash: This spill-proof mouthwash is totally genius. Just tear and add water to the pouch to create a single-dose rinse.

Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens: Keep shine from ruining cute Kodak moments with these green tea infused blotting papers.

The Chic Classic

Oscar de la Renta Rollerball: This romantic floral fragrance would dress up even a T-shirt and yoga pants.

Beauty is Life Hot Red Lipstick: Get noticed with this stop sign-red hue.

stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer: While caffeine is a great pick-me-up, nothing makes you look fresh-faced quite like strategically placed highlighter.

Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Papers: The 24-carat gold flakes in these blotting papers really up the fancy ante.

Kate Spade Twirl Rollerball: This floral scent strikes the ultimate balance between sophisticated and playful. We keep it in our day-to-day handbag too.

ModelCo Shine Gloss: Not only will this long-lasting gloss stay on through multiple toasts, but you don’t even have to head to the ladies’ room to reapply—it comes with its own mirror!

YoungBlood Mineral Perfecting Powder: When it comes to translucent powder, less is more. A light dusting will keep your skin matte without disturbing your makeup.

Chantecaille Les Pétales Lumière de Rose: Part highlighter and part shadow, this velvety two-in-one gives skin a gilded look.

Minteas: These petite mints freshen breath and also provide an antioxidant boost, thanks to green tea extract.

Baggu Wedge Pouch: This keychain doubles as another storage compartment.
