We receive a lot of questions about the Spring/Summer 2017 handbag trends, and we get it, it’s been a long winter, and we all need some new trends to take our minds off it!
1. Mini Bags
Chloé, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi
The Mini Bag trend it’d been going strong for a few seasons now, and it’s not going anywhere! Mini bags usually come with a long strap, allowing them to be carried crossbody, making them the perfect handbag for weekend errands!
