Mini Bags are a Thing Now

We’ve seen them all over the runways, Jacquemus has some of the best ones, they’re all over our Instagram feeds, and even in Chriselle’s closet, now, so it’s safe to say that mini bags are totally a thing.

Are they the most practical handbag option? Not always… but do you remember when we all used to carry around wristlets on a Friday night? If we got on board with wristlets in 2008, we can get on board with the mini bag!

They’re cute, the cherry on top of your outfit, and a great way to limit yourself to JUST the essentials making it the perfect bag for a night out! Keep scrolling to check out our picks for the best mini-bags right now!

BOTTEGA VENETA Jodie mini knotted intrecciato textured-leather tote

How luxe is this white Bottega bag? We want it in every color.

JACQUEMUS Le Chiquito Micro textured-leather tote

While this might only be able to fit a quarter, or maybe a pair of earrings… we just had to include the ULTIMATE mini-bag in our mini-bag round up!

LOEWE Gate mini textured-leather shoulder bag

Pretty in pink? Yes please! This little Loewe bag can take you from day to night.

CULT GAIA Estelle mini croc-effect leather tote

This structured lady-like bag is bascially art you can keep your credit card and lipstick in.

SUZY Sage Scrunchie Mini Cross Body Bag Topshop

The best things really do come in small packages! This baby blue bag from Topshop is the prettiest Spring color, and under $40.

KEN White Cross Body Bag Topshop

This little top handle bag from Topshop is such a great going out bag. It’s got a cross-body strap that you can attatch so you can dance all night long!


This bag is such a dream. We fell in love with Chriselle’s monogramed Dior bag so naturally, this has shot up to the top of our wishlists.
