Girls, step away from the oversized IT bags; the biggest bag trend for winter 2013 is (somewhat ironically) is the mini across-body bag.
We saw baby handbags on all the AW13 catwalks, from Chanel's Boy bag through to mini-me McQueen numbers, so bigger is not better when it comes to fashion this season. Besides, having a teeny handbag FORCES you to reevaluate whether you need to carry around ALL THE THINGS.
Tapping into the trend is Brit bag brand The Cambridge Satchel Company. They're already our go-to for channelling a smart, preppy style a la Alexa Chung, and their low-slung straps make for the perfect across-body bags (AKA ideal for tapping away on your iPhone while clutching a coffee and applying lippy).
They've just added the Mini Satchel to their lovely range of leather handbags. It comes with all the traditional features of the classic satchel but in an adorbs miniature size (a petite 9" across the top flap). SUCH FUN!
The pint-sized satchel comes in four shades for winter 2013: classic red, black and vintage brown (all £125) plus a colour-popping fluoro pink (£135).
