With less being equal to more in modern times and downsizing being a big and emerging lifestyle trend, we are seeing influences of minimalistic culture trickling into fashion and accessories looks as well. Mini—and even micro—bags are this season’s must-have accessory. Despite the fact that they require redefining what counts as everyday essentials, these bags have become quite popular with the style set. The result is not only a weight off your shoulders (literally) but also a fresh and fun way to make a major statement with just one tiny piece. Another added bonus is that they’re a great way to get your hands on a designer bag at a palatable price point.
This new trend in fashion is oh so cute and definitely adds a fresh take and much-needed relief from the over-sized designer bags that have been weighing down our arms and shoulders over the past couple of years. Flash back to a couple of years ago, and you’ll probably remember that everybody’s designer handbag was bigger than the next. Phillip Lim’s oversized Pashli, YSL’s hefty Cabas, Céline called its infamous style a luggage tote, for crying out loud. Now, it seems the style set has quite literally gone to the other extreme, swapping enormously oversized bags for minuscule styles that’ll barely hold a tampon, a credit card, and your iPhone.
International designers such as Valintino, Fendi, YSl and Stella MCartney have all come out with mini versions of their popular bags to celebrate this fun and flirty trend. High street designers are also churning out various practical and wearable options in handheld, sling and cross body styles to suit your needs. Theses bags can also fit in your larger tote and transitional seamlessly from a day to a flirty and fun evening cocktail look. With minimum fuss and baggage, the leave you free to be light on your feet and have fun without being endlessly worried about your handbag all night long.
