Practical? No, Stylish? Yes - I'm talking about this seasons must have accessories trend: The Micro Tote. I'm pretty sure I had a mini handbag, not too dissimilar to the below, back in the 90's when I no doubt begged my parents for a handbag to make me feel 'grown up'. Well fast forward to 2017 and the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid are well and truly bringing this trend back... most likely with a PA or security guard trailing a few steps behind with their actual handbag because lets be honest these micro totes are completely unpractical. But alas this is fashion, and as we all know trends need not be entirely realistic. For styling think, Cher from Clueless mixed with modern street style...yes really.
Designer brands often introduce smaller versions of their best selling styles, as a more accessible way for consumers to buy into the brand. So, if you are looking to shop this trend the luxury market has many great options. Be prepared to only carry your essentials with you, phone and maybe a small make up case. Happy Shopping!
