Sometimes you may find yourself out and about in an unfamiliar area, and the last thing you want is to feel like your bag isn’t secure. If this happens, simply hold your clutch from the bottom with your wrist laid against the front and your fingers wrapped underneath facing inward and press against your hip. This will allow you to feel like your items are safe and still maintain your chic ensemble.
