This Bag Is Basically Just a Chic Home for Your iPhone

Amazing shoes and a statement bag are a prerequisite for any chic outfit, and as our heels have gotten shorter, our bags have become smaller. Tiny in fact. It was certainly predicted that the mini bag trend was going to stick around all year thanks to Gigi. But in the recent spring 2018 runway show by Jacquemus, we spotted the trend become even smaller in scale with the stand-out accessory of the show being the most minuscule top-handle bag we've ever seen. We know it's impractical, but what better way to downsize this season and carry only the essentials in a bag? We're giving in.

Since we can't hold out any longer, we've sourced the best contemporary and designer bags that won't break the budget or require a loan (fashion is hard work). From Simon Miller to Clare V., and even vintage designer styles from The Real Real, we cover our favourite micro bags that still go big on quality.

Keep scrolling to shop the trend, and if you're wondering how fashion girls actually keep essentials to a minimum, head over to Byrdie Australia to see our editors' bag spills, from a teeny lint roller to travel-friendly scents.

The brand we've seen Spanish designer María Bernad wear on the daily. 

Still on the more expensive side, but heavily discounted, this vintage Chanel beauty is a timeless accessory. 

The hardest part is choosing what colour you'd wear the most. 

Clare V. is on our radar for seriously chic and affordable accessories. We can't get enough of the white woven texture. 

Because bold red is always a good idea when it comes to accessorising.
