Teeny Tiny Bags Are This Season’s Ridiculous Yet Essential Accessory Trend: How To Wear

Hayley Kadrou   |   20 - 08 - 2019

Love or loathe it, micro bags were the stand out accessories on recent runways, and celebrities quickly adapted to the look that only allows for one lipstick to be your on-the-go item. But how exactly does one style the miniature accessory?

When we’re living in the age of cute (when we’re not watching viral videos of kittens on Instagram we’re busy commenting ‘cute’ on our gal pals’ pictures, after all) it’s no surprise that this trend has taken off.

 

Because, as anyone who has ever spent a night in a hotel and left with a washbag full of miniatures knows, small-sized is irresistibly cute.

Yes, this season micro bags that allow for very selective must-haves are one of the key trends to experiment with.

 

But while the likes of Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski have championed the cute trend, is it really that easy for non-models to pull off?

 

If you want to try the trend brought to the runways by the likes of Jacquemus, Jil Sander, Brandon Maxwell, Versace and more, here’s how to pull it off.

Layer Up 

 

Never travel light? Entwined this trend with another one to make this work for you, and layer the miniature with other, slightly bigger hand-held bags. See, fashion doesn’t have to mean sacrificing carrying all your essential.

Neck Wear

 

We never knew lanyards could be chic (we all know that one colleague that insists on wearing their one 24/7) but this take on the XXS bag trend is working for us. Brands such as Gabriela Hearst created accessories that slotted nicely into the lanyard role.

Ring To It

 

Leave your phone at home – this one is for the bold. You could always just brave wearing the tiny bag all alone? Simply a house key and bank card will suffice, and the likes of Brandon Maxwell and Jacquemus approve of the look. Simply dangle the bag from your index finger and go.
