Trendy Mini Designer Handbags and How to Wear them

The tiny handbag is one fashion trend that won’t fade any time soon. With celebrities rocking the red carpet with small designer handbags, we’re bound to see a lot more of these bags.  Contrary to popular belief, the mini handbag isn’t a recent trend. It can be traced back to the 60s and 70s, when society challenged traditional codes of behavior.  Women began wearing shorter skirts, and handbags were reduced to complement the look. The same trend is evident in modern-day fashion, and this time the bags come in a much smaller size.
Here’s a lineup of micro designer handbags and some tips on the best outfits to go with them: 

The Valentino Garavani Stud Sign shoulder bag

It comes in a black color to match your favorite outfits. It’s versatile too thanks to the detachable handle and leather strap included allowing you to wear it as a crossbody and shoulder bag too. Valentino Garavani finishes the look with a bold maxi VLogo signature that rids of the monotony of the bold, black color.

How to Wear Mini Handbags

With the demand for mini handbags at an all-time high, it’s crucial to find ways to style them with everyday wear and accessories. Here are some ideas:

  1. High Waist Trousers, a Top, and a Mini bag

Want to pull off the 70s vibe? Adding a mini bag will do that flawlessly. The high-waisted flared denim trousers belong to the mid-70s fashion, and carrying a small leather bag creates a modern vintage look.

  1. A Sporty Two-piece Suit and a Mini Bag

You can wear the bag around your neck or over the shoulder to complement the sporty look. Add a pair of matching sneakers for a complete look.

Be sure to carry a mini bag that gives off a minimalist vibe to avoid looking too dramatic. The small Valentino Garavani Small Rockstud calfskin handbag complements a sporty look perfectly.

  1. Jumpsuit Style

Adding a small cross-body handbag to a jumpsuit is one fashion style that never fails. Consider pairing it with a pair of shiny black silhouettes to make the overall look a little more stylish.

  1. Add Color to a Printed Shirt and Short Outfit

A bold-colored mini bag can also be used to accentuate a bland look. If you’re big on mixing patterns, you can pair bold-colored women’s purses with a printed shirt and a pair of shorts. The bag adds a pop of color to an otherwise simple look.

  1. Floral mini Clutch with a Dress

Floral dresses are a staple for many ladies, especially during the spring season. Pair it with a plain-colored clutch to go with the flow of the look. A matching floral mini bag also comes in handy as long as the colors aren’t too bright.
