Cute handbags with short handles are making a serious splash. Here are our top picks.
Remember those ginormous handbags we were carrying around just a few short months ago? You know, the ones that made you walk on a slant? I’m happy to report your shoulders can finally take a breather: Cute handbags with short handles are the new black, and the wide variety of styles available has left me all verklempt (in a good way).
There’s nothing I’m looking forward to more than ditching that awkwardly long shoulder strap that makes me feel like I should be delivering mail. Here are 12 cute handbags you’re going to lurv:
1. Ruth Satchel
Palloncino’s Verde Quadrato handbag is elegant in its simplicity – perfect for day or night. This vegan pick has a silvertone metal zipper closure and a roomy interior, plus two exterior snap pockets for all of your essentials.
3. Cork Satchel
This stunning Cork Satchel by Corkor is handcrafted by experienced craftsmen in Portugal and made of the finest quality cork. The exterior is soft, flexible, sturdy and durable, and its roomy interior includes a zippered pocket for your cell phone or keys.
Believe it or not, this Modern Autumn handbag is made of linked squares of coconut shell with a sleek mango wood handle. It contains an inner pocket and coconut shell trim on the zipper for that subtle finishing touch.
The Sabine Triangle handbag by The SWAY is a black messenger bag made of reclaimed leather. Oh yeah, and it’s pretty.
6. Malone Dwell
This adorable Malone Dwell Doctor handbag by Matt & Nat is uber-versatile: You can enjoy the short handle trend, then when the jig is up it can also be worn as a shoulder bag or crossbody, thanks to its adjustable and removable strap.
7. Boston Satchel
This is one of those cute handbags that borders on irresistible: The Boston Satchel by Stella McCartney gives off a powerful vibe with its structured lines and geometric silhouette. Basically, get ready for everyone to be jealous.
8-12. ThredUp Satchels
There are so many gently used cute handbags on ThredUp, it took me forever to narrow down my picks (seriously, I went gray in the process). Check out these short-handled beauties by Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Jimmy Choo, Zac Posen, and Coach – and get ready to become as indecisive as me.
