Are you looking to shop fall’s new collections but not ready to commit to a cool weather wardrobe? Why not start with one of the season’s most interesting accessories trends: miniature bags. Tiny totes of all sizes were spotted across the runways of Jacquemus, Loewe, Paco Rabanne, and Louis Vuitton. Various coin purse shapes were worn as necklace charms, while tiny belt bags hung off hips as the 90’s resurgence continues. A few upcoming brands specialize in the compact size leather goods arena including Little Liffner, Bienen-Davis, and Lutz Morris. Add a bit of ladylike flair to a bohemian look with a classic lady bag in tow (as seen here). Or, perhaps you are in the market for your daughter’s first tiny purse, like the one Kylie Jenner bought for Stormi? You are never to young to get your first Birkin.
