The Cutest Bag Trend of 2016

With the rise of the Konmari method, it’s no surprise that this year, your accessories will be all about downsizing. Mini—and even micro—bags are this season’s must-have despite the fact that they require redefining what counts as everyday essentials (goodbye to our notebook and emergency Kind bars). Carrying these tiny handbags, you’re forced to stick to the fundamentals: a wallet, lipstick, and of course your iPhone. The result is not only a weight off your shoulders (literally) but also a fresh and fun way to make a major statement with just one tiny piece. Another added bonus: Business of Fashion points out that they’re a great way to get your hands on a designer bag at a palatable price point. Check out how style stars are taking they’re mini bags to the streets, then shop a few of our favorites!
