clutch definition and meaning

What is a "clutch"?

A clutch is a small handbag without handles or straps that is meant to be carried in the hand or under the arm. It is typically used for formal occasions and is designed to hold only a few essentials such as a cell phone, wallet, and makeup. Clutches come in various shapes and sizes, and they can be made of different materials such as leather, satin, or beaded fabric. Some clutches may have embellishments such as sequins, embroidery, or jewels to add a touch of glamour to an outfit. The name "clutch" comes from the verb "to clutch," meaning to grip tightly, as this is how the bag is typically held.
