Keys, iPhone, lipstick, hairspray — by the time you've rounded up all of your necessities for an evening out, the square footage of your bag can get sucked up entirely. So, if you're going to make the effort to downsize all of those essentials and pack what you can into a pint-sized purse, you at least want to score major style points, right?
Us, too. That's why, with minimizing in mind, we found some not-so-carryalls that make sporting a clutch beyond worth it. From major Moroccan-style envelopes to posh mother-of-pearl compacts, these 20 statement-making stunners will have you thinking "who needs lipgloss?" before you know it.
