The ULTIMATE Guide to Mini Bags

2015-12-13 fashion Other Brands

MMini bags have simply exploded this year! There seems to be no limit to the mini madness with bags shrinking to even smaller dimensions. Since, the tiny trend seems to be taking over the fashion world, PurseBop is going to give you a handy “mini guide” to help you navigate all the mini madness.

Below are pictures of this year’s most popular mini bags. At the bottom of the post there is a master list price chart –and as you can see these mini bags unfortunately do not come with a small price tag.

Before we get into specifics here’s a quick overview of the qualities of the mighty mini bags…

PROS

  1. Anything mini sized always makes our hearts skip a beat. In the end, mini bags are too irresistible because of their dainty size
  2. Mini bags, depending on their design, are versatile for many occasions from day to night because their stature doesn’t inappropriately overwhelm an outfit
  3. Mini bags are easier to carry since most designs offer crossbody straps. The bags themselves are less bulky and easier to maneuver
  4. A quality mini bag is an exact duplicate as its original, bigger style in terms of craftsmanship and aesthetic. You can get the same look of a iconic bag in a scaled down version for (sometimes) a comparably more affordable price

CONS

  1. Not everyone is infatuated with mini and it may not suit your personality. For some, mini bags can come off looking more childish than flatteringly dainty.
  2. Some micro and mini styles are meant to be used as “bag charms” in tangent with or in a bigger bag. For some, this is redundant and a bigger hassle
  3. Mini unfortunately means less storage. The items you carry are severely limited with mini bags (some nano and micro versions can barely hold a phone!). With smaller sizes, you become restricted in terms of space and have to carefully think about what to pack.
  4. Even though most mini bags (that aren’t exotic or limited edition) are cheaper than their counterparts, the price difference between a bigger bag may be so marginal that it’s hard to justify buying the mini or a bigger bag that offers a lot more in terms of space and material.
