Women everywhere have been asked these mind-boggling fashion questions time and time again… why do our jeggings have fake pockets and why do we need a bag at all if it’s not even big enough to hold a chicken roll? Look, people here is the deal with tiny bags. They are not meant to carry out any functional needs we might have, it is just about the aesthetic. Ain’t no lady going to lug a big handbag around while she has a fancy little dress on, stylish tiny bags are just for the essentials.
With the fashionable Cannes film festival. The Royal Wedding and a couple of global fashion events that have taken place in the last month, our favourite fashion girls have managed to represent and slay their presence in all of them. An accessory they chose to carry on the red carpet were the tiny bags. They all looked super adorable carrying these things around and we want the same vibe for our next glammed up outing!
Priyanka Chopra absolutely stunned with her outfits and outfit changes at the Royal Wedding. The satin handbag from the Lady Dior collection perfectly complemented her starry night outfit (psst… the bag has rhinestones on them!). A metallic silver-toned small bag will be a great addition to carry with your sequined and bling-heavy dresses.

How do you jazz up an all-black ensemble? Add dashes of metallic colours in there to still keep the look dark and mysterious. That’s what Priyanka aimed for with this ensemble and matching accessory, the Judith Leiber box clutch is in line with the brand’s novelty collection, designed to stand out among any other accessory.

Summer vibin’ in her little blue dress, Kangana Ranaut took a break from her red carpet duties to shop around Cannes. The tiny yellow bag from the Tod’s Gommino collection will be a good addition to go with your colourful and spring happy dresses!

While you can pair small handbags with both your western and Indian outfits, there are a few ethnic styles that can be picked to stir things up a bit. Kangana paired her starry night inspired saree with a tasselled potli bag, harking back to the vintage leading ladies from retro Bollywood movies.

Huma’s Mele + Marie handbag is more than just an accessory here. The statement minaudiere is an innovative design. The inspiration for its colours and cuts are sourced from nature. Honestly, we were just impressed by her decision to pair an abalone hued bag with a golden gown, clashing two brights to create a magical contrast.
