This year, we say give those large totes a rest because it’s high time you start learning how to pack light. Made to fit just the essentials, three bag trends are set to reign supreme this 2016: the camera bag, the bucket bag, and the mini bag.
If there’s one style that has managed to prove its staying power, it would have to be the bucket. From leather classics, summer prints, and fringed seventies, there’s a drawstring beauty that will surely suit your personality.

These boxy purses are too cute to resist. Seen on the S/S 2016 runways, these structured sling bags will be the perfect storage for the go-to camera of this generation a.k.a. your phone.
This was from a few seasons back, but the literal camera bag still remains to be one of our faves.

What they lack in size, they make up for in charm. We suggest you pick one with a punchy hue or a kookie print guaranteed to steal the show.
