It’s time to move bulky handbags aside and make way for the new piece of arm candy in town. With the festive season in full swing, there’s no better time to invest in a luxe lightweight clutch to effortlessly party the night away in style – and rich, regal purple is our most coveted after-dark colour.

We’ve fallen head over heels for Mulberry’s plum Margaret clutch – with its chic suede design, fold-over zip fastening and elegant statement gold plaque it’s an achingly cool piece of luxury. But at £450, it’s getting a little too steep for last-minute spending – after all, the 25th is almost upon us – so think of it as a smart style-savvy investment for yourself this season.

But if you’re looking for a quick purse-friendly alternative, this cheap and cheerful Ursula silk clutch from Jigsaw at eBay Fashion Outlet shapes up sharply. The compact design and easy open access makes a delicate after-dark accessory – not to mention its stunning antique bead embellishment means you’re guaranteed to make a splashing statement.

And at only £18, you’d be foolish to let this bargain go a-miss. Time to treat yourself, ladies – you can never have too many handbags. Which will you pick?
