The "mini" handbag trend for Fall/Winter 2013

Rebecca Minkoff Skylar Studded Mini Messenger Bag SapphireAs you start to update (or think about updating!) your wardrobe for the new Fall/Winter 2013 season, remember to take a close look at your current handbag. Beginning of the season is always a good time for an update - not only is there a better variety of price range, the "major" muts-have bags are not yet sold out. There is nothing more disappointing than reading about a hot new handbag only to find out that it is no longer available! For Fall 2013, you might say "small is new small", as the mini is making a major comeback! You can send your statement satchel or oversized crossbody to the back of the closet for now, and embrace the mini (or micro) handbag trend.

All the major designers have small versions of their signature bags - Jason Wu's Daphne mini has been a celebrity must-have, Alexander McQueen has downsized those fabulous foldover totes, the PS11 is super small & chic, and even Givenchy has moved down a few sizes. Your personal choice should be based on lifestyle - if you're looking for L.A. street chic, any of the above brands paired with your most basic jeans and tee will do. For the more budget-conscious, brands like Rebecca Minkoff and See By Chloe will stand the test of time.. and I can't say good things about MARC by Marc Jacobs (personally have two in my own rotation!). But for the fashionista who has everything, Jersoe Dreyfuss will be right up her alley. Check out the selection below..
