They say good things come in small packages, so does that mean the best things are microscopic? For Fall/Winter 2018, the trend du jour is small, smaller, and smallest when it comes to bags, and we can’t help but love these itsy bitsy, sort-of-impractical accessories. Although they’re tiny, they pack a big punch, making every outfit that much more intriguing. Why?
Because mini bags are the ultimate luxury item, capable of carrying nothing more than a lipstick, a credit card, and maybe a stick of gum, forcing the wearer to reduce all of her belongings to the bare essentials and freeing her from the drab weight of massive shoulder boulders. Carefree style is the ultimate sartorial indulgence, which is why this season’s crop of little bags are favored by “It” girls and influencers alike. We’ve gathered the best mini, micro, and belt bags available right now, including some of the hottest brands of the moment and a few emerging labels labels that we’ve been keeping our eye on. They might be small, but we promise they won’t disappoint.
