Why Mini Backpacks Are a Big Fashion Trend
If you've flipped through a fashion magazine or scrolled your favorite style blog recently, you've likely noticed that mini backpacks are having a moment. The petite purse is making a major comeback—mini backpacks are currently one of fashion's biggest accessory trends. Like so many other '90s wardrobe staples that are suddenly cool again—slip dresses, scrunchies, pool slides, double denim, and fanny packs (or, in our case, Fawny Packs)—the latest mini backpacks are modern, elevated versions of their previous incarnations.
We're not talking about your high school JanSport here—today's mini backpacks are more adult than adolescent. Chic mini backpacks by the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Chloe have been spotted on fashion runways and street-style stars for the past few seasons. The trend is here to stay, and for good reason: mini backpacks are a fun alternative to a traditional handbag, and they're just big enough to stash your daily essentials.
We're big fans of the mini backpack, and we're partial to our own take on the trend: the Fawn Design Mini. The wear-with-anything size is easy to throw on for running around town, a night out, and for any adventure, big or small. Don't let the name fool you: The Mini maximizes space with a variety of interior and exterior pockets to keep all of your necessities organized, like your cell phone, wallet, keys, lipstick, sunglasses, and more.
We like to rock our Mini old-school by wearing both backpack straps, or throwing one strap over our shoulder for a more casual look. Bonus: the Mini's comfortable, interchangeable straps can be worn as a backpack and a messenger bag, so there's twice as much to love about it.
