As they say the bigger the better but that’s not always the case in the fashion world. Although, jackets and outerwear have become bulkier and larger and oversized cardigans and sweaters have become a fad this season. Handbags went on a different direction. Before, the ideal bag is big enough for you to put all your essential things or in exaggeration your whole house. It should fit all your important things that you need every day for your daily errands. However, as the fashion world update its looks faster than a lightning bolt and gadgets have shrunk. The smaller and thinner the item is, the more functional it is, the better. And the good old big bags have vanished to fashion oblivion and smaller shoulder bags are starting to appear on the runways in the fashion capitals and fashion magazines. So I’m going to give you a list of small shoulder bags that are on top of the trending list this spring.

He applied eastern modernism approach to his bags and comes in different colors like red, brown and black and adorned with pearls. Second on the list is Tory Burch small shoulder bag. Burch combined floral and urban jungle all rolled into one amazing bag. With its soft and feminine lavender print and mixed with leopard print this bag is definitely a statement piece to have. Third is The Row small shoulder bag. Although, The Row’s fall 2012 RTW collection is somewhat cryptic and gothic with its muted black and white color palate.
