This Trend Will Make You Rethink the Mini Bag

The last several seasons we’ve focused on the mini bag as a staple accessory every fashion girl should own. It’s charming, easy on the shoulder blades, and is ideal to grab on the go. And while we still stand by these sentiments, this season we’ve seen an influx of jumbo-size totes in an array of eye-grabbing textures and patterns that have us making extra room in our wardrobes for these oversize beauties.

Designer labels like Céline and Gucci have introduced these bag silhouettes, and now high-street labels like Zara and Mango are following suit. Why the sudden desire to upsize our bag? It’s likely the shift in seasons. Fall feels like an opportune time to trade in our summery woven basket bags for a more serious, functional iteration—and it seems the gargantuan tote is a fine option. See below for inspiring ways to style this larger-than-life piece, and if you're in the market to add one to your accessory collection, shop our curated picks!
