Many moons ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Clare V’s showroom in New York. At the time, I wasn’t blogging. Regardless, I was immediately taken with the quality of Clare V’s products. Today, I’m excited to dive into the Clare V Holiday Collection at Nordstrom.

Overall, I’m confident that you’ll love the line as much as I do. Furthermore, the sumptuous fabrics and exquisite attention to detail are just amazing.

Clare V Holiday Collection

Clare V Holiday Collection’s pulls out all of the stops. As a result of research and design, the design team brings forward a well-curated mix of bags. From the pops of navy to their signature stripes, and embossed leather, the line is full of surprise and delight moments at every turn. Additionally, the handbags are incredibly versatile. One moment, you can sport it for a dressy occasions like holiday parties and weddings.

On the flip side, the holiday collection is perfect for everyday use. Every piece can be styled with jeans, leggings, and even loungewear. All in all, I’ve found that the best types of handbags are those that are versatile for all occasion. In essence, the Clare V Holiday Collection falls into that category.


Handbag Holiday Gift Ideas

Also, if you’re struggling for holiday gift ideas, the bags are a wonderful option for both family and friends. Plus, I love there are more attainable price points on the smaller leather goods and clutches. Furthermore, there are plenty of luxury options, such as their leather totes.

Clare V Handbags

Below, I’m sharing some of my favorite trends from Clare V’s holiday collection at Nordstrom. All things considered, I’m confident you’ll find a great gift idea for everyone on your list. Altogether, the collection will put a huge smile on the recipient’s face.

Stylish Stripes

Stripes have always been a signature element of the Clare V brand. Specifically, I LOVE the Center Stripe Snakeskin Embossed Leather Crossbody Bag. Plus, I love the clutch version.

Beyond the beautiful hues and luxurious leather, I love the size! The crossbody is big enough to hold everything I need, but not too large that it’s overwhelming. This striped crossbody is also darling! Can we talk about the mix of fabrics and colors? Fantastic!

Navy Bags

Navy is the ultimate neutral, and it pairs well with literally everything. I’m a huge fan of wearing the color at work (especially at meetings with clients or new business meetings).

In a job interview, it’s often recommended to wear navy over black. By and large, color theory says that black is viewed as a powerful color whereas navy is more laid back. In essence, navy is seen as approachable. Interesting, right?

Therefore, I am always on the hunt for great navy apparel and accessory options. I especially love the Petite Alistair Circular Crossbody Bag.

Prints and Patterns

Lastly, I love that Clare V embraces and celebrates bold prints and patterns. The holiday collection features leopard, poppy, and marquis prints throughout on everything from totes to clutches. The fun pops of color, such as the Belle clutch, make me so happy!

With all of this in mind, feel free to check out some of my other Clare V posts, including this petite pink bag, striped bag, and leopard print clutch.
