Can oversized also be understated? The new trend of oversized clutches has been spotted on numerous fashion blogs in recent weeks, proving their growing popularity this spring.

These oversized clutches help to meet us girls halfway in the handbag department, by being smaller than big heavy handbags, yet bigger than the staple miniature Coach clutches many of us have used in the past. Overall, I would say they are a good size for a spring clutch because they are large enough to carry all of our essentials without feeling as if you are carting around a piece of carry-on luggage!

Oversized clutches have the ability to make the transition from daytime casual, to dressy evening accessories based on what you pair them with. For a more casual look oversized clutches pair well with floral printed sundresses, and if you’d like to go for a more upscale evening look, oversized clutches can bring a pop of colour or sparkle to a little black dress. The jury may still be out on whether oversized clutches can also be understated, but either way they are a definite trend for spring 2011!
