The One Handbag Style You'll See at Every Christmas Party This Year

They say all the best things come in small sizes, and microbags certainly back up that theory. These small pouches often get overlooked for practicality reasons, but when you see the teeny bags we've found, I think you'll be dropping everything (including most of your belongings) for one of these little cuties. Little bags lost more than a couple of inches this season, and we couldn't be more in love with our shrunken bags.

Street stylers and fashion editors were spotted throughout fashion month darting between shows with teeny-tiny bags draped across their bodies, around their waists and swinging alongside thigh-grazing boots. And so you get an idea of exactly how small we're talking, none of the bags below is over 25 centimetres long. Ranking smallest in our shopping basket is currently Building Block's crossbody box bag coming in at a tiny five centimetres. Saint Laurent's bag is another close contender measuring at 6.5 centimetres. Pretty small, huh?

So what actually fits in one of these little bags, you ask? You'll want to take a single door key, your chosen bank card, and, if you spend time positioning things really carefully, you might just get a lipstick in too. Maybe.

Style Notes: This Fendi bag might be small, but it makes maximum impact thanks to the strong colour.

Style Notes: If it's this small, you might as well go all out on the silly factor. We love the circular handle, embellishments and pastel colour.
