Fashion isn't always comfortable - sky-high heels, body-conscious dresses, and oversize, shoulder-crushing tote bags, for starters. So, when a trend comes along that plays by our rules, we welcome it - read: functional flats, full skirts, and, currently, mini bags.

Thanks to the Fall runways, we're lightening up for the new season, trading Summer totes for carryalls that are as cute as they are compact. And, what they lack in size, they more than make up for in print, texture, and bright color. Scroll through and take your pick of our 16 favorite styles on the market right now - and, if you're a big-bag addict, we can help with that, too!
