Small bags are essential when going out because they are less bulky to bring. You’re also encouraged to only bring the necessities like your phone, wallet, and maybe a powder compact and lipstick. Just look at how we compartmentalized the items we can fit in a Louis Vuitton Pallas Clutch.
Aside from the usual neutral-colored bags, what caught our eye recently are ones with colorful decals and embroideries. These add a unique pop of color to any outfit. You can also show off your personality with the text and designs on the fabric. Choose one that matches your style from our list below.
