I Used to Only Carry Totes, But I Now Rely on This Cute Handbag Trend


@maggie_mccormack; Styling: BY FAR bag

While I’m definitely more of a shoe person, I have a soft spot in my heart for my beloved tote bag. I carry that thing everywhere. But the mini-bag trend is also of interest. Of course, I had to find the best small bags on the internet.

Despite how small they are, mini bags have made quite an impact over the last few years. You may remember when Jacquemus debuted the Le Chiquito bag back in 2019. But now, you can find all types of mini bags on the market, from mini shopper totes to underarm baguette-type styles that are very much inspired by the fashion of the late ’90s.

Because a major part of my job is finding the cutest pieces on the web, I rounded up different options to check out right now. Keep scrolling to see a few of my favorite styles here.
