Wardobe Staples: The Mini Bag

The mini bag is an essential for any wardrobe! You have probably seen these being toted around as they are all the rage right now but still a classic piece that will not go out of style. We're here to share a few reasons why you should consider one and a roundup of some of our favorites.


Grab it an go!

We've all probably got a bag (carryall, backpack, etc.) that has WAY too much that sometimes we don't want to bring on a date, night out, just running errands...so grab the mini and go. It can house only the essentials so it forces us to downsize a bit, which can be nice once in a while :)


It's mini and aka small and packable

Making it perfect for weekend trips to 2 week+ vacations where we might want multiple bag options


It's chic & classic

Its effortless and like we ran out the door after getting ready and it only took us 5 minutes kind of way. You can opt for a neutral mini for one that is more classic and versatile to pair with many outfits or go for a pop of color if you want this as your statement item to pop when pairing with your outfits


You've got options to choose from

Whether you want to go with a clutch style mini, camera bag, satchel style, crossbody, or currently popular "scrunchie bag" style, you've got options to find what works best for you.


Roundup of mini bags across all budgets and pricepoints. We of course had to include some classic designer options because honestly if you are thinking designer these bags are the lowest price point of the designer bags and good starting point to dip your toe into this investment and see if it's worth it for you!
