Have yourself a merry mini Christmas

The clutch bags are out and that can only mean one thing: it’s party season.

Whether you love them or hate them, you have to admit their practicality in a world where women’s jeans don’t have pockets. Where normally you would carry around your Mary Poppins bag full of mysterious trinkets, it’s now time to bring the clutch out of hibernation.

If you’re looking for a new clutch this year, here are a few Fashion North favourites:

Accessorize Cara Diamante Chain Clutch, £27

Snakeskin Envelope Clutch Bag by Koko Couture, £19

Grey marabou faux fur cross body pouch bag, £22

But, the clutch is not your ol’faithful everyday bag and it only has enough space to fit your phone, a few credit cards, and maybe, if you’re lucky, the lipstick you need to reapply after that first drink. We know you’ll need to be armed with everything you need, so we’ve come up with the solution.

We do it when we travel but don’t really think about it when we’re faced with the concerns of a small bag: travel sized make-up! Here are some of our top mini make-up picks that you can pop into your clutch to save space and so you can look your best all night long.


We challenge you to see how many of these mini-beauty products you can fit into your clutch and tweet us @Fashion_North and show us your results!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us here at Fashion North.
