While designers have definitely branched out and bigger bags are trending, there’s no denying that mini bags are in fact, still a thing. I personally do not mind it, I’ve learned to slim down what it is that I carry, which is something that I never imagined myself doing. Medium sized bags and totes used to be my go-to, and I toted around everything from snacks and a water bottle to a large wallet that wasn’t even all that full. As mini bags began to trend, I learned to streamline what it is that I carry, getting rid of some unnecessary items and only carrying the things I truly need. Trending or not, mini bags do work for me at this time in my life, but I understand why they aren’t everyone’s go-to shape.
Regardless of age or stage of life, I still believe that everyone needs at least one mini bag in their rotation. They’re perfect for a quick run to the grocery store, dinner out, or shopping at the mall. When it comes down to it, the thing you’ll likely grab most from inside of your mini bag is your credit card or ID. I rotate between two cards—a credit card and a debit card, and I rarely carry cash, so a small card case is the perfect way to make these go-tos easily accessible without taking up very much space. I have a small wallet that I use to day to day, and it was one of the best things I purchased in the last two years, but I could use a smaller card case that would work when I’m going out to eat or running to grab coffee. I love the idea of a card case with a pop. Card cases are the perfect small way to tap into trends you wouldn’t otherwise like. I’m into a pop of color like a bright red, or a fun logo and below I’ve rounded up 12 options I’m currently lusting after. Which one would you snag?
