It's time to give some rest to the shoulders and pick up a fancier option. We are talking about an envelope clutch, an accessory that might change the bag game this summer. Celebrities, including Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, Victoria Beckham and Kylie Jenner, are seen carrying this cute and functional accessory everywhere, making them the "it" bag this season.

Even brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and Marc Jacobs have done a special series of envelope bags and highlighted details such as studs, metallic borders and leather finish. The quilted clutch is one of the most popular envelope bags in this category and it's back in vogue.

According to fashion experts, envelope bags look much more elegant than cross-body bags or heavy totes that hang from your shoulder. They are more traditional and classic royal style. They pair well with formal and occasion wear and look very elegant.

Check out the latest trends in this segment as international brands bring them back in vogue.
