Clutch this: Tribal-style

We were gutted to find out that the infamous Angela Simmons 'Bee Clutch' and Virgo's lounge other tribal clutch were out of stock.

However we're SO sprung on the Art-Deco beaded style of these lovelies that we went on the prowl to find the next best thing and thought we'd share them with you. 

Here's the ILA Top Five beaded clutch recommendations currently in stock:

5. At five is this Dune E MASSY - Cylinder Art Deco Beaded Clutch Bag

Its demure black brown, gold and white design are likely to team up well with the majority of  the outfits found in your wardrobe:

4. A little more on the wild and pricey side is this Deepa Gurnani Bead & Fringe clutch bag. The tassels remind us of the recent bohemian-chic trend:

3. Coming in at three is this Monki 'Forever' Clutch:

As described by Monki, "Colour: print perfection...The neon zigzags on this clutch are so bright you can almost feel the whole thing buzzing and humming when you pick it up. Enjoy!"

2. As held by one of our favourite fashion blogger's Joy Adaeze, this Jewel by Lisa clutch looks almost edible! Two words...bubble-gum! (And Yum!)

1. NEWSFLASH!!! Kanayo Ebi, stylist to the Simmon's sisters has confirmed it with us on twitter! [@kachmeifyoucan] The clutch we mentioned Angela Simmons was wonderfully accessorised with at NYFW yesterday, was this Yoruba/Navy Envelope clutch by Rachel Roy

With Angela's well put together style being the inspiration for this list, it made sense that this beautifully crafted clutch came in at number one.

What would you wear with these alternatives?
