We're officially sold on the teeny-tiny bag trend

Since Jaquemus released the smallest handbag I've ever seen (my purse is bigger) we've seen an onslaught of tiny bags on the high street, here's some of our favourites.

Being very much an 'everything but the kitchen sink' kind of girl a small bag is not something I gravitate towards. Instead I like something that can carry my entire make-up bag, a book, a bottle of water and the 15 lip-balms I insist on taking with me everywhere.

However, I can't stop picking these up and admiring them when I'm out shopping. I know they're impractical. I know I'll overstuff it until a clasp pops open.  I know they won't fit more than my mobile phone and a Leap card inside. But still, inexplicably, I want one.

There is something so lady-like and feminine about a small dainty bag, and there are so many to choose from at the moment. Zara have lots of beaded, evening options, &Other Stories have your '90s fix with the return of the baguette bag, Mango have lots of classic styles and Rixo's pink and seashell combo is as girly as it gets.

So perhaps it's time I gave my poor shoulders a rest and packed light for a change?
