Sick of carrying around a handbag? I know there have been plenty of times when I just want something that will hold all my necessities (wallet, phone, EpiPen, lipstick, mirror) and not be in the way. I want something that will free my hands up as well as not slap against my thigh when I walk. Curse those pesky side bags. Although handheld handbags and side bags are adorable, there has to be another other viable option that is just as fashionable. Well, ladies, there is. The new and improved version of the backpack!
These useful back clingers are both accessible, fashionable, and are now miniature. Fuzzy, clear, embroidered, or embellished, these packs are replacing purses everywhere. It’s the perfect solution to free your hands up, not to mention very lightweight. Seems like everyone will be taking after the original queen of backpacks, Dora the Explorer. Anyone have a map?
I own one of these mini backpacks myself, and I feel like Cher from Clueless. Once a 1995 trend, this 2017 fad is appearing everywhere, giving clothing a 90s vibe that perfectly blends with the rest of the 90s nostalgia. But this knapsack trend proves that big isn’t necessarily always better. It’s a nice change since everything seems to always be growing in size: phones, televisions, people’s egos. (C’mon we all know it’s true.) It’s nice to know that something as simplistic as the backpack has its own establishment within the fashion world.
High-end brands such as Gucci, Coach, Besty Johnson, and countless others have added their own flare to the miniature pack trend. With so many styles, colors, and patterns the backpack possibilities are endless. So next time you contimplate carrying your favorite handbag to the mall, switch it up by wearing a mini pack. That way you can text with both hands rather than go through the one handed struggle of big thumbs and too many spelling errors.
