The mixture of white and coral on this python skin clutch gives it a simple, classic look. We love the use of silver hardware against the warm color to give it more of an edgy appeal! If you have the money to splurge on something this fantastic, and are in need of a chic day clutch, we say hail to the Choo!

This summer there are some great trends for men to don; from 3.1 Phillip Lim’s ombre obsessions, to Louis Vuitton’s work and sportswear, there seems to be inspiration everywhere for men to go mad with fashion this season. However, before you get started on your summer shopping, or try bringing out those super short jorts (jean shorts) you men all seem to love when the warm weather comes, we are having a ‘What Not To Wear’ moment at Glam Damn It and for your own sake (as well as your partner’s) suggest you check out our men’s summer fashion don’ts before you realize you might be sporting one of them.
Graphic prints and patterns are always a great way to add some spunk to your style. They have been showing up on a multitude of frocks, from skater/snowboarder T’s, to denim, to chic dresses, and our current favorite, accessories. We are loving the look of the funky, graphic totes for summer and their ability to bring an outfit to life. With the bold statement that a bright, graphic bag makes, an otherwise plain outfit can really gain some great character. Mix them with other prints and patterns for a mad fad look, or go the simplistic route with black or white from head-to-toe, and they'll make a real pop on your ‘blank canvas’ ensemble.
We usually associate leather with cooler seasons like fall and winter but this summer, it’s proving to be a huge trend with camel toned pieces, and gold attributes. Spotted on all the runways from A.L.C., to Alexander Wang, everyone can feel the leather love for summer 2012. But how to incorporate the look of leather in your wardrobe for the warm weather can be tough so we have a few tips and tricks of the trade to keep you trendy for the season, and still able to transition to the fall again!
With the sunny seasons upon us, lightweight, easy throw-on pieces are crucial to keep in your closet for a hot day. We love the crochet craze that always goes on during spring and summer . This season, it seems to be appearing in more ways than one! From dresses, bathing suits, to handbags and shoes (we may even catch a crochet bike or two decorating the streets of Manhattan) the light knitwear is definitely a must-have!
