10 Irresistibly Cute Mini Bags For Your Next Big Night Out
Once an almost absurd idea, mini bags have come a long way from their origins as novelty statement pieces to becoming wardrobe essentials.
Small in size but big on style impact, tiny arm candies in bold pops of colours are now the perfect accessory to take your outfit up a notch. While we won’t dispute the fact that they fit barely anything save for essentials like keys, credit cards, and maybe a lipstick or two; we’re also in love with how cute they look.
Here are 10 worth investing in.

Sleek and stylish, the beautifully curved lines of this reinvented classic makes it a must-have. Easily styled as either a shoulder bag or a handbag, the Cleo Mini’s alabaster pink colourway in brushed leather keeps it sweet and feminine.

This list would be incomplete without at least one mention of Jacquemus, the French fashion house that popularised the micro mini trend with its range of tiny bags. Available in a variety of bold colours, the signature Le Chiquito Moyen is made from smooth leather and features gold logo lettering.

Timeless and versatile, this tiny shoulder bag is crafted in Italy from black textured leather and quilted into the fashion house’s signature chevron pattern. Accents of gold from both the iconic “YSL” logo plaque and the chain strap adds a touch of elegance to any outfit.

The scaled down version of the brand’s signature “Casette” bag, this petite crossbody style looks especially stunning in bright pops of colours like pink and green. Crafted using strips of supple leather using Bottega’s intrecciato weave, the bag is a stand-out piece.

The Stockholm brand’s well-loved Musubi tote has been shrunk into an adorable micro size but retains the same lovable twisted knots on each side—inspired by traditional Japanese obi sashes. Made from soft leather, the handy bag comes with a middle zippered pocket compartment.
#6 Dior Micro Saddle Bag, $3500

While Dior has released various micro editions of its best-selling bags, the legendary Saddle bag remains the ultimate style icon. Featuring a saddle flap with a “D” stirrup and a “CD” signature on each side, this stylish arm candy can be personalised with different embroidered shoulder straps.

The miniature iteration of the house’s Noé bag, which was first created in 1932, this micro bag is crafted from monogram canvas with trimming in natural cowhide leather. Play around with multiple carry options thanks to the removable handle and adjustable strap.

Although this bag isn’t as small as the rest on this list, its pastel pink hue makes it just as “baby” as any other mini bag. Scaled down to hold just the essentials, the XS tote comes with a tiny cardholder and a heart-shaped mirror that’s bound to make you go "awww".

For that carefree resort vibe, turn to this little tote that’s made from water-resistant cotton-canvas trimmed with leather and logo-printed webbing. The neutral colourway ensures it’ll match all your outfits and the detachable strap lets you style it as a crossbody.
