Fashion has gone fun-sized. Small, compact and the perfectly-sized for your essentials (phone, keys and contactless), mini bags are major right now, adding instant SS17-ness to any get-up. Need extra proof? Check out the trend on the catwalk, plus see how our fave street style stars have been wearing the mini bags of the moment.
On The Catwalk
Valentino and House of Holland
Things got XXS on the catwalks for Fashion Month, with the likes of House of Holland Valentino jumping on the mini bag hype. Classic colour combos were out, making way for sweet-enough-to-eat lilacs and pinks, toughened up with studs and more charms than we could count. Too good.
On The Street
Taking the weight off our shoulders (literally), down-sized designs are everywhere on the high street. From cross-body cuties to handbags with teeny-tiny proportions, this season’s mini bags come in endless variations – look out for fresh blooms, animal clash-ups and lust-worthy pastel shades.
Proving that they’re not just for Wednesdays, millennial pinks are also hot on the new season agenda, sharing the top spot with interchangeable bag straps that instantly remix your look. Backpacks are also getting involved with the pint-sized style action, mixing with high-shine metallics to create the fashion must-have of our actual dreams.
