Trend Alert: Mini Purses

Malababa Mini Carlota BagWhat: Say so long to your back-wrenching, achingly heavy oversize handbags. This fall it's time to give your body a break and return to fashion's littlest favorites: clutches, croissant bags, pochettes and mini-envelope bags.

Why: They're modern, hip and far more fashion-forward than those heavy bags we've been lugging around for the past year. Downsizing to a more minimalist accessory is not only vintage chic, but it's a lot more practical. It's better for your body and it makes socializing a lot easier — just sling these tiny bags with long straps across the body and you're in hands-free heaven.

Hot Styles We're Hankering for: Shopbop.com has an exceptional collection of beautiful bags in itty-bitty sizes. One of our faves is this Jerome Dreyfuss Momo Disco Bag on sale for $184 (reduced from $369) and this Malababa Mini Carlota Bag now $143.50 knocked down from $205. Both are fairly plain, which means they'll go well with everything in your closet.

VS Jeweled Mini Bag

For those into labels (we know some of you are die-hard Louis fans) check out the original Louis Vuitton Pochette Cancun ($300) or the Dior Mini Jacquard Pouch ($375). Out of your price range, but still want that monogrammed look? The Dooney & Bourke 'IT Mini' Square Crossbody Flap Bag from Nordstrom is only $85.

And finally, for the girl who really can't spare the cash for a trend that could fade just as quickly as a bad dye job, we recommend this Jeweled mini cross-body bag from Victoria's Secret. For just $45 you have a choice of five fabulous fall colors in satin with suede trim.

P.S. Don't forget to hit your local thrift or consignment shop — they're bound to have some of these styles at prices that are too good to ignore!
