Trend Alert: Mini Bags; Love It Or Leave it!

trend_min_ibags_sept_2014_feature

The ‘over-size’ everything rule has been dominating accessories trends for more than a few seasons but it seems like the jig is up, atleast as far as handbags are concerned. Most design houses worth mentioning have unveiled bite sized versions of their iconic bags and while some of them are absolutely adorable and impossibly hard to resist, such as the Celine Luggage Mini for one, others are downright disturbing, for instance the Hermes Kelly micro mini bag.

For us the best mini bags are the satchel versions of their larger top handle tote counterparts, perfect examples being the Givenchy Antigona, the Prada Saffiano or the Balenciaga City. They can be worn perfectly as cross body bags while bearing the chic high end structure of the original style. Additionally the miniature models are reasonably easier on your wallet allowing you to own your favorite designs and feel much less guilty about it!

The smaller size lets you work the same bag for a dressier look using the top handle and switch seamlessly to casual street style with the cross body strap. Take a look at some of ways you can give this appreciable change of pace trend a shot.
