Would You Wear... a Phrase Clutch?

Perhaps it all began a few seasons ago with Kate Spade writing "Eat Cake for Breakfast" and "Let's Roll" on t-shirts (or maybe it truly began with '90s graphic message tees!). Wherever it came from, the phrase trend has evolved and found its new home: the clutch.

If you feel like speaking out, it won't be hard to do this season, since phrase clutches are absolutely everywhere. From silly sayings to cute quotes and bold words, there's something for every personality.

Personally, it's hard to imagine this trend sticking around for several seasons. As college girls, investing in an expensive bag of this sort is a shot in the dark. However, we love the idea of DIY-ing your own, like the cross-stitched ASOS version above. Or, with a couple fabric pens and an inexpensive clutch, you can say anything you please! Either way, it seems like this season, the most powerful statement you can make is without saying a word.
