People either love or loathe the tiny-bag trend. I happen to be a fan of these teeny-tiny little purses, and I was absolutely thrilled when my husband, Pat, bought one for me for my birthday. It came in the most gorgeous shade of baby blue, and it was the cutest thing I’d ever seen (even next to my dog, Charlie). Right off the bat, I could see the shock on Pat’s face when he realized how small the Jacquemus bag actually was IRL. He thought it looked bigger online, which I found utterly amusing.
Sure, it’s not the most practical bag in the world — I happened to forget my phone behind on my first night of using it — but fashion is all about having fun, and in the famous words of Marie Kondo, it sparks joy in my life. I think the appeal behind the style stems from the fact that it gives any outfit a little dose of personality, and it doesn’t hurt that they are cute as heck. It shows you don’t take yourself too seriously, and the minis also teach you how to downsize. The size forces you to only carry essentials like your ID, credit card, and lip balm and get rid of all the clutter in your bag. If you are wondering how exactly to style your mini since it can feel a bit daunting at first, I’m breaking down some easy options for you to give a try. Thanks to some of my favorite street style stars, I’m showing you 14 easy ways to style your tiny bag ahead.
