I have become so dependent on my pouch that my requirements for it have elevated. I always keep a pouch in my bag for all of the odds and ends, so that when I switch bags (which, of course, is very often), it’s a simple task. There are so many things in there that the pouch has become kind of a mess. Receipts and dry cleaning tickets mixed with up my lip-gloss and sunscreen (which I always keep on me).
These double pouches can multitask along with me! The outer pocket handles my paper trail, leaving the interior to protect my beauty department. They are so cute that they can even double as clutches! The Stella McCartney Audrey clutch ($1,145) even has three pouches, the front two paneled in floral devoré velvet. This faux leather bag is a great size for carrying around your iPad and other essentials. Stark color-blocking makes the Marc Jacobs two-tone leather clutch ($595) looks like a clutch on top of a clutch. Minimalist, yet unique, this bag’s asymmetric red pocket will be your best friend. Taking a different approach to pouches, the Marni two-tone leather clutch ($860) has pinch locks, rather than zippers. It’s a slim bag and best for a day that requires few essentials but much style.
