If you’re like me you will know the struggle of feeling like you need to take every item you own out with you in your bag. There was a time when bags were so oversized you could fit half of your house in there, and I will admit having a big bag means I fill it with things I won’t even need throughout the day.
But there is a new it-bag coming through for 2016. Mini-bags may look, well, mini but you’d be surprised at just how good they are for your daily needs. I am surprised at just how much I love this trend!
Whilst looking super stylish and easy to carry with a long shoulder strap, these magical mini’s can still fit your essentials such as make-up, hairbrush and water bottle!
And as well as being suitably casual for a day out they can also look perfect at night, teaming up as a classy clutch.
I think this is going to be a great trend, the idea of having an amazing bag but just a slightly smaller version. I am already seeing these a lot through the transition to SS16, with noticeable fans being the Waterhouse sisters. Both Suki and Immy Waterhouse have been spotted with mini bags, Suki with a beautiful red one at an awards ceremony and Immy with a blue shoulder one as part of her street style look.
