A/W 13-14 Micro Trend: Coat Clutch


A key styling trend for accessories, bags were seen clutched close to the body in fabrics and colours that matched their coats across the Autumn/Winter 2013-14 shows. The resulting look is cosy and demure as models appear to cuddle the soft clutch bags against them for protection from the cold.

The look was seen at some of fashion’s biggest shows, including Marc Jacobs in New York and Stella McCartney in Paris. Like the trend for wearing coats as capes draped over the shoulder, clutching bags to the chest of matching coats will no doubt be reinforced by the street-style set next season. 

See our Street Style round-up for a look into the styling tricks popular with those attending fashion week this season.
