It might be small, but it speaks loudly. If you haven’t downsized yet to mini statement bags, now is the time. Bags are shrinking in size, making mini purses the hottest accessory around. We know – swapping from your huge bag that fits everything and more, to a micro is a little scary – but it’s perfect when you don’t need to lug something massive around and want to look like you have your life together.
Last year, designers took some of their most popular bags and made them the tiniest we have ever seen. Gucci was cuter than ever with little marmonts, and Louis Vuitton went micro for their iconic pieces. Now, all our favorite stores are having fun with the accessories as well. This season, we are seeing a bigger variety than we ever have, meaning there is one for everyone.
Luckily right now, there are a lot of newbies for the season. For example, mini beaded bags are becoming all the rage. Net minis are also being seen on celebrities all over, and they make IG photos look their best with their pleasing aesthetic.
While a classic black mini is to die for, you can always spice your wardrobe up a little bit more. Minis now have a little more tude these days. From embellishments and fringe, to becoming french fries (yes, we’re talking Kim K’s mini) and your favorite animal.
Word to the wise – be sure to check dimensions when purchasing a micro – some are so mini they don’t fit an iPhone, but there’s no shame in that considering it’s in our hands almost 24/7 anyways.
Mini statement bags are ready for any night out and fits the essentials – lipstick, money/credit cards, ID and keys – what more do you really need? Small but mighty has never held so much truth – check out some of our favorites below.
