Spring 2021 Bag Trend: Clutches, Not Handshakes
Whether it's elbow bumps or distanced air kisses, we're all trying to figure out the best new way to greet people since shaking hands has been deemed an absolute no-no. With the increase of the classic clutch on spring/summer 2021 runways, perhaps brands have been taking a nod from the British royal family and Kate Middleton? We learned from Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette, that Kate carries a clutch so she can "hold her bag in front of her in both hands when shaking hands might be awkward" as it's protocol that you don't shake hands with any member of the royal family. Spring/summer 2021 has us all set to navigate the new normal, just like a royal.
