Clutch bags don’t have to be all glitz and sequins. Instead, why not opt for a stand-out piece in a bright colour, unusual shape (doggy bag, anyone?) or with a graphic print?

We’ve scouted out a selection of vibrant and out-of-the-ordinary clutches and pouches to pep up an outfit, whether it’s jeans or an LBD. From Accessorize’s pop art-inspired ‘Call Me…’ clutch (£19) up to Dareen Hakim’s sleek and chic envelope style Le Parisien (£196), there’s a bag that will fit your budget.

For an affordable bag that will add a pop of colour to your outfit without causing too much of a dent in your pay check, take a look at Accessoryo’s bright range. If it’s glamour you’re after, Wilbur and Gussie’s silk-covered bags with their surprising – but still somehow classic-looking – prints are an investment. For anyone that likes the idea of a pouch, John Lewis’s bright botanical-print number is a statement steal for under £30.
