This Is the Best Type of Handbag for Petite Ladies


Listen, we love a slouchy, oversize tote as much as the next woman (think of all the junk you can fit in there!). But, if you’re looking to add height to your frame, you might want to consider jumping on the tiny-handbag bandwagon.

Why? It’s all about scale, scale, scale. A giant tote can make a petite frame look even tinier. An itty-bitty handbag, on the other hand, looks way more proportional and will make it look like you’re taller than you actually are. (Visual trickery for the win.) 

Luckily, there are tons of tiny bag options out there right now, from little circles like the one above, to mini silhouettes in just about any shape you can imagine. 

We’ve been meaning to Marie Kondo the contents of our purse anyway.
