More specifically, micro croc-effect satchels. These It bags have been the talk of the town thanks to new brands cropping up, combined with the street style set’s adoration of the silhouette. A few reasons I’ve personally been feeling them?

So yes, we’re clearly in the midst of peak mini croc, but with the 2019 runway’s emphasis on the style and the new iterations that keep popping up from all the major lines, I know we’re going to continue riding this trend wave well into next year. So if you haven’t grabbed onto one of these It bags yet, it’s not too late. Keep scrolling for a little visual inspiration in the form of fashion girls with their must-have satchels, plus shop some of the best styles of the moment that are bound to give you all the feels.
