Now that you’ve chosen a rad dress (or chic dress-alternative), it’s time for the extras—more specifically the perfect prom purse. With so many considerations to keep in mind—size, shape, colour, fabric—the choices can get overwhelming. Especially if you want to get more than one night’s use out of your purse. We’ve done the leg work for you and rounded up our fave versatile little clutches on the market now, whether you’re looking for a quirky printed clutch or a hands-free cross-body. Whichever one you choose, heed our advice: leave the hand sanitizer, giant overstuffed wallet and random pens and highlighters in your backpack, and stick to the essentials in these wee bags: lipstick, compact, phone, cash and cards.
