The utilitarian trend that complements the tiny bag trend

Fashion and function haven’t always seen eye-to-eye. Yes, we have all been guilty of sacrificing convenience and practicality for the sake of pulling off a look. And we could state all of the questionable trend bandwagons we have jumped on. But this summer, it’s all about the tiny it bag. Mansur Gavriel has pioneered this trend with its baby bucket bag, as well as Instagram’s favorite bag line, Kara, that has perfected their oh-so-small, but aesthetically pleasing purses.

However, it wasn’t until Rihanna stepped out with her miniature Simone Porte Jacquemus bag that we were convinced. As the meme says, it’s ugly (or impractical) until Rihanna decides it’s not. And to our delight, with the appearance of this impractical trend comes its practical counterpart: clothes with multi-pockets.

In Valentinos, Pradas and Sportmaxs SS’18 ready-to-wear collections, pockets have gone from their usual subtle and understated ways to center stage. Whether they’re placed on relaxed shapes or streamlined structures, this new utilitarian aesthetic approach to uniform dressing is ever so appropriate for the multi-tasking women of today. Proving that sometimes, when it comes to purses, bigger isn’t better, and when it comes to pockets, more is better.

So, ahead find 13 utilitarian inspired items with pockets that will fit your new phone and that will go with that tiny bag you didn’t know you needed.
