T R E N D : the mini bag

With an array of different spring/summer trends populating the likes of every social media platform, I thought I would dedicate this post solely to my by far favourite trend at the moment; The Mini Bag. This trend has assured me that good things do come in small packages after all. Though the least practical of items due to their miniature structure, they definitely have been cutest arm / shoulder candy. The Mini bag made quite a few sneaky appearances on various S/S shows where designers downsized their bags, styled with both extravagant as well as minimal outfits; showcasing the Mini bags versatility whatever the shape or design. Although it's always been a fashion favourite for fashion brands over the years, brands such as Chanel, Valentine and Chloe have put their own spin onto things, jazzing up their own interpretation of this big trend. Valentino vision saw lipstick cases being worn round the body, Chanel used made a bag look like a miniature robot, as for Prada, a plush fur was blended with a bright pop printed leather. 
I've always been a bag kind of gal, so the mini bag trend was something that I was 100% for. Likewise with any other accessories I find them to be very versatile in terms of dressing up or down an outfit, depending on the type of bag purchased of course. I tend to find myself gravitating to mini bags that are brightly coloured, have a textured body and feature some sort of embroidery on it: seeing as I normally like to wear them to dress up an outfit. Since I've been sucked into this trend, and frantically adding thousands of mini bags to my wish lists it's pretty safe to say that this trend, isn't going to die down anytime soon. Although you can fit as little as some loose change, and hopefully an iphone I guess it's worth carrying a mini bag around if it isn't practical, but even when practically is necessary, the bag certainty better be stylish. 
It's no surprise that many A-lists celebrities too have supporting this playful trend, my favourite take on the trend was when Rihanna wore the Louis Vuitton palm springs mini backpack, completing her tone down outfit extremely well. I've also shared my favorite street style photography looks with how various different individuals have worn the Mini Bag to fit their own aesthetic. Thanks to Pinterest I've been pinning so many different Mini bags from past runways, which probably isn't the best; but no one can have enough bags. 

Thanks for reading & stay tuned for another trend post!
