Leave your wallet at home — because the “It Bags” of spring 2018 are only big enough for a lipstick, keys, and phone. Micro bags have popped up on runways and street style stars alike, contrasting sharply with the oversized shoppers and roomy totes we’ve rocked seasons past.
Perfect for a night out or shopping trip, these teeny purses can be worn as crossbodies, clutches, or even belt bags. Large enough only for the essentials, these small bags are big on style. We’ve rounded up a few of favorite styles from our go-to designers.
Louis Vuitton Alma BB
The Louis Vuitton Alma BB can hold keys, a smartphone and lipstick. A miniature version of the original Alma bag — introduced in 1934 and an icon of the Art Deco era — we love that this micro is a fresh take on a classic style. Available in 13 colors and prints, we are fully on-board with scooping up this style in multiples.
Givenchy Nano GV3 Bag
One bag, two ways. We love that the Givenchy Nano GV3 flap bag can be worn as a crossbody or worn on the Double G belt as a belt bag! (Double duty bags? We’re sold.) This little nugget is only 4.72 inches x 3.1 inches x 1.6 inches and holds only the basic essentials. We’re swooning over the mixed textured leather and suede, combined with the vintage-effect gold metal hardware.
Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag
We instantly fell for the poppy red mini version of one of Fendi’s hottest bag styles. The detachable shoulder strap can transform the little carry all from a hand bag to a crossbody instantly. Just under 6 inches long and 4.5 inches tall, the inner compartment is divided by a stiff partition to keep your essentials organized. We love the twist lock and sweet little handle. Available in seven bright, bold hues, we think the Micro Peekaboo is the perfect spring pop of color.
Prada Micro Cahier Bag
This mini version of the Prada Cahier bag is the teeniest of them all. Measuring 4.2 inches x 3.2 inches x 1.2 inches, you may need to leave your smartphone at home, but hey, that’s what pockets are for, right? Available in 16 colors and textures, we are obsessed with the gorgeous silver python leather version. With nappa leather lining and bronze metal hardware, this precious little bag is truly eye-catching style.
Dior Mini Lady Dior Bag
The iconic Lady Dior bag is somehow even more stylish in a micro style. We love the sweet charms, light gold hardware and beautiful lambskin material. Available in 15 colors and prints, this gorgeous mini bag can be worn on the shoulder, as a crossbody, or carried by hand. Equal parts vintage and modern, this ladylike style is 100 percent chic. The Mini Lady Dior bag measures 6.7 inches x 5.9 inches x 2.8 inches.
