If you're metaphorically decluttering your life this Jan, then why not think about extending the Marie Kondo-vibes to your handbag? When you've let go of the screwed up 2016 receipts, the ideal home for your keys, credit card holder and phone (be strict people) is a mini backpack. Here's the very stylish proof...
EVERYONE IS WEARING
The new it-bag is diddy and double strapped
By Jemma Tibbals, 18 January 2017
If like Bella Hadid, the 2016 you was pretty disciplined and you hit the gym on a regular basis, that whole 'new year, new you' thing feels defunct. Get fresh feels from stepping up your handbag game on gym-free days: team trackies with a style-heavy backpack (B's is Louis Vuitton).
Fashion writer and I Believe in Pink blogger Linda Tol is proof that an itty bitty backpack is office attire and some. When you're wearing your 9-5 threads, like Linda's navy trouser suit (double breasted blazers are a must RN), an unexpected accessory, like a quilted red backpack, is a happy hit of your 5-9 self.
Don't let a dress code get between you and your most fab backpack. A metallic, quilted, diddy version has got dinner date written all over it, especially when paired with a lace cami, like Russian blogger Elena Perminova.
Do you know who your favourite new brunch companion is? A hot-damn white little backpack, teamed with a trusty, slouchy hoodie like Sofia Richie's no.1 brunch buddy, Nicola Peltz.
The joys of a mini backpack are not only visual. If hands-free access is all you pray for when you're holding a round of six drinks on a night out with your mates, a colourful 'pack, teamed with a cute denim jacket and knee highs, could be your idea of heaven.
