When you’re Jennifer Lopez and you have people to open doors and carry umbrellas for you everywhere you go, having a hands-free bag probably isn’t a huge priority. So it wasn’t all that surprising when she stepped out with a certain bag trend while out in New York this week while promoting her new film, The Mother. The bag trend in question is an oversize clutch, which is basically the worst nightmare of someone who strongly prefers easy crossbody bags. But what this J.Lo-approved bag trend is lacking in convenience, it makes up for in chicness.
Not since Daniel Lee made unstructured clutches a thing during his early days at Bottega Veneta have they been so popular. But after they were seen all over the spring and fall runways and in oversize silhouettes no less, they’ve taken off again. Lopez’s clutch is by Max Mara, and it comes in at an impressive 14.5 inches across. Carrying a strapless bag of that size around all day may not be for the faint of heart, but there’s no denying that it looks cool and forward.
