Micro bags are a hit this 2018. Just when you think women’s handbags cannot get any smaller, fashion serves up micro bags. At first, they seem to counter the very purpose bags were made for: extra storage. But hey, in the absence of big pockets—or even just pockets, period—on women’s clothing, micro bags can be great, right? They definitely can, especially if you’re not too hung up on function.
The space they occupy on your collection and the room they offer may be a tad small for what we need everyday, but the impact is the reverse of that. Besides emulating your favorite stars on sporting the tiny sacks, the wonder-inducing accessories give a great return on your purchase by neatly tying up your look, and creating a statement. Plus, if you’re the type to stick to tiny essentials when going out, micro bags offer the convenience without much of the weight. Here are some of our favorites that are worth grabbing this season, divided into different colors to complement the mood and add pinches of elegance or playfulness to your entire ensemble:
