The trend toward smaller bags and little pouches impacts menswear for next spring. Runways (and NYC streets) feature men wearing fanny packs holster-style, as well as appealing neck-wallets that are a sleek take on the frumpy travelers’ favorite. Look out for contoured shapes that encircle the waist, menswear fabrics, fluo touches, ombré finishes and contrast zips. Many of the smallest bags attach with a clip for extra versatility.

In a movement away from all the big and slouchy carryalls or teeny-tiny “necklace bags”, the small and structured bag is looking just right. Big enough to make a statement and petite enough to go from day to dinner, the neat bag will bring a polished note to everything from wear-it-to-work looks to casual dresses and jeans. Many have dual handles — one short and one for shoulder or cross-body — making these perfectly-proportioned handbags even more versatile. Ornamental closures and surface decorations add more interest.
