Have you noticed the bags getting smaller?

They may not be the most practical every day bag, but there is something so cute and charming about a mini bag and over the last few fashion week seasons I’ve noticed street style stars downsizing their accessories.

Personally I think Chanel‘s much loved plexiglass clutches started the craze and this season we saw other designers shrinking their bags with Fendi releasing micro almost keyring size bags while everyone else went mad for Chloe Drew’s and Celine played it cool with simple but standout mini’s.

I find it incredible how much lust power a little bag can have and it’s even better when you see some people layer two or three at a time or attach them to their large totes like at Fendi. Providing a delicate touch to any outfit, mini bags are perfect for the summer when you don’t have to worry about carrying an umbrella or gloves, just throw in your credit card, phone and lipstick and you’re set for the day! Tip: go for candy colours to brighten up even the simplest of outfits.
