Is This the New It Handbag Style?
Move over, statement clutches and sleek minaudières, because there's a new trend taking over the small handbag category—at least according to Gigi Hadid. The effortlessly stylish model has been seen toting sophisticated top-handle mini bags around town, solidifying the pint-size bag's reign this season. Hadid's infatuation with the ladylike bag isn't fleeting, either: Last summer the It girl donned a woven Stella McCartney mini, and she's bringing the chic style back again this season.
Last month, Hadid rocked Burberry's DK88 bag in its nano size, opting to rock a bright pink version to juxtapose her edgy get up. She's taken a liking to the sleek, top-handle shape and scooped up three different versions of Stalvey's stunning mini, which she paired over the course of just a few weeks with everything from sporty off-duty looks (including chap-like jeans) to beautiful '70s-inspired silhouettes. Most recently, she went for a laid-back look, opting for a jewel tone tracksuit and infused the ensemble with a refined element, courtesy of her beloved top-handle mini. The shape, which was seen on the Balenciaga and Proenza Schouler runways, instantly polishes the most casual look, and leave it to Hadid to school us on how to pull it off.
