Ditch The Clutch: Try These 12 Night-Out Bags Instead

Dressing for a night out usually presents endless sartorial opportunities. Pants and dresses both work, flats can be as rad as heels, and we’re just as likely to don a moto jacket as we are skimpy top. But, no matter how much we switch up the clothes, the bag game can feel like it’s forever stuck in the boring-clutch category. However, there is an alternative: a mini crossbody.
A pint-sized messenger bag can look as cool as (if not fresher than) a clutch when paired with a night-out ensemble. And, with a strap to keep it secure, it’s also significantly easier to hold onto when you’re out and about (especially if your nights involve as many impromptu dance parties as ours do). If you, too, are suffering from handbag fatigue, click ahead to shop our roundup of the best lil' crossbodies on the market. We suspect you’ll want to get them all into your clutches.
