Bag trends have gone from hugely oversized, to micro, to wearing multiple bags at once. When it comes to a fall investment piece, we’re putting our money on mini. Versatile enough to double (or triple) as a wallet, a clutch, and a crossbody, mini handbags are every bit as luxurious as their larger tote siblings.
Designers are scaling down their signature quilted leather, pyramid studs, and luxe silhouettes to create the perfect mini handbags for the girl on-the-go.
