Here’s the thing about oversized bags: We love ours (so much so that we’ve raved about them incessantly, and tote one almost on the daily), but boy can they be a hassle to carry. On a good day – and by that we really mean on a day where we can ditch all the extra unnecessary load we usually stuff in our receptacles, it’s hard to fish around for our keys/wallet/phone (you name it) in our roomier handbags. And as for a bad day, well, we’ll let our sore shoulders speak for themselves.
Our solution? Retire the capacious numbers and tote a mini-sized bag instead. At the top of our wishlist are Turkey-based brand Mlouye’s adorable “Lantern” bags, a chic circular crossbody bag from Louis Vuitton stamped with the House’s iconic monogram, and Bottega Veneta’s coveted “Arco” bag in an itsy-bitsy miniature model.
Take your pick from our top favourite mini bags from designer brands below.
