The Not-Too-Big, Not-Too-Small Clutch
If you're petite, don't overwhelm your small frame by tucking an oversize version under your arm, says Bradley Bayou, designer and author of The Science of Sexy. If you're tall or full-figured, a too-tiny clutch will make you look larger. We like this beaded version from Banana Republic that fits all the essentials and comes with a wrist strap to keep both hands free so that you can juggle a plate of hors d'oeuvres and a glass of Champagne.
