Bored With Your Basic Tote Bag? You’ll Love These Chic Alternatives for Spring


We can all agree that a handbag is a pretty major part of any ensemble. I mean, not only does it hold all our day-to-day essentials from moisturizers and makeup to chargers and agendas, but it gives our look that oh so perfect finishing touch every time.

As much as I love an oversized tote, sometimes I just don’t feel like lugging it around all day. Especially if I’m going out for a night on the town. Who needs to carry a tote bag when you’ll only have lip gloss and a cellphone to put in it? That’s when you opt for something practical, stylish and versatile that won’t do too much damage on your shoulders as you dance the night away. A small handbag is the ideal solution.

Currently my accessory crush, mini bags are everywhere from the runway to on the arms of my favorite street-style bloggers. They come in unique shapes, sizes and colors to make any outfit stand out regardless of the occasion. You can easily make one the center of attention or just carry it as a luxe add-on. The options are endless.

From crossbodies to wristlets, keep scrolling for smaller handbag options that won’t cost an arm and a leg, just in time for Spring.
