Handbag Trend to Shop This Spring: The Mini Bag

Getty Images: Givenchy Spring 2017

Deciding which type of handbag to purchase is one of the toughest shopping decisions a fashion girl can make throughout the year. The reason? There’s a good chance it will be one of the costliest additions to your wardrobe, and you want something that’s worthy of the investment, something you’ll carry again and again.

The Spring 2017 runways brought us all sorts of exquisite bags in a huge variety of shapes, colors and prints. In the last months I’ve seen some trends take off and others fall by the wayside: the mini bag was immediately adopted by the fashion set!

The smaller the better! Mini—and even micro—bags are this season’s must-have despite the fact that they require redefining what counts as everyday essentials (goodbye to our notebook and emergency Quest bars). Falling somewhere in between a miniature clutch and a piece of jewelry, these micro bags are designed to be worn around the wrist or the neck.
