While it’s not always convenient or comfortable, I’m all about a big roomy handbag. You’ll never see me rockin’ a clutch; even on a packed dance floor, I always have my giant purse secure under my arm, knocking drinks out of peoples’ hands with every turn I make. Like I said, it’s not always convenient… but I like to have my hands free and everything I might ever need in one place! Okay, so maybe I don’t actually need all that stuff with me all the time, so if I convinced myself to leave all the not-so-essential loot behind for the night, I might be able to settle for a more compact bag on occasion. But I still like to have my hand free!
Enter these cute mini chain bags, which are popping up all over the place in the realm of bag trends. Convenient and compact, these minis are more than just your shrunken-down satchel or glorified fanny pack — they’re fun and functional. They’re cute in size but with a bit of dressed-up edge with their chain details. For a pop of color, I love the hot pink Antik Batik Havana mini, while this Lanvin leopard print bag makes a statement despite its modest size! I may not be able to fit my wallet into most of these minis, but they’re cute enough that I’m willing to downsize for style’s sake!
