Micro Bags
These ultra-miniscule bags are big for spring 21, and we’re all for it. Offering adorably scaled down versions of hero silhouettes such as the crossbody, top handle bag and pouch, micro bags can come up so small they barely fit a credit card, but that’s the fun of it. The micro bag forces you to edit with strict necessity, leaving you lightweight and fancy free to enjoy spring’s days to the fullest 
We’re especially fond of vintage-inspired styles in miniature form, like top handle bags from the likes of Pinko and Missoni as well as teeny tiny shoulder bags from designers including Burberry and Valentino.



Tote Bag
If travelling light has never been your style then the tote is the go-to bag for you. Ideal for carrying those ‘just in case’ essentials, a tote bag slots into your spring outfit rotation with effortless ease, and can even be paired with smaller bags like the crossbody and micro bag.  
While canvas totes can easily roll up between use, we’re all for luxe leather styles from brands including Coccinelle and Guess, and ever-chic colourful totes with a little embellishment - perfect for adding an element of sunshine to your spring 21 wardrobe. 




Liu Jo
