We know you love your huge, bottomless, back-breaking carryalls, and hey, we're not judging—we'll plead guilty to stuffing everything from makeup and snacks to multiple pairs of shoes into our XL Alex Wang. But, as your bulky coats come off in the April sun, it's time to shed some weight when it comes to your must-haves, too. It's liberating, really, to be able to carry your work bag with, gasp!, only one hand.
And while some longer days do call for a tote that fits everything under the sun, we dare you to try out one (or all!) of these undersized and oh-so-chic daytime clutches (don't worry, they'll also look fly under the disco ball) every once in a while. We left our heavy loot at home and scouted 14 picks that are high on detail—we're talking edgy hardware, bright hues, contrast stitching, and, of course, a seriously chic ikat print. Not only do these handhelds add a pop of color to your spring wardrobe, but they also give you the freedom to say "I will only carry one lipstick today!"
Grab hold of one of spring's most covetable clutches—and take it out during the day!
