From street style stars to the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, we can't seem to escape the trend that is micro purses. In the time we took trying to figure out how to fit anything other than our cell phone in these tiny little bags to toying with our emotions towards hanging up our favorite totes, designer brands have crafted up the perfect little (emphasis on the little) bags of our dreams and we're finally ready to hop on the mini bag bandwagon. Are you?
We're calling it: Lavender is the It color of 2018. Sorry millennial pink, but with pale purple appearances on Spring '18 runways from Tom Ford, Tibi, and Victoria Beckham (to name a few), it's hard to ignore the pastel-adjacent takeover. Lavender even has the Rihanna seal of approval, along with Black Panther lead Lupita Nyong'o and Grown-ish rising star Yara Shahidi rocking lilac gowns on the red carpet in full support of the lilac hue. What's not to love about a universally flattering shade that looks good with just about anything, with your favorite denim or a bold orange lip. If you're not ready to take on loud ultra-violet, then these lavender pieces are your in to one of 2018's top statement trends. Shop our fave lilac finds from athleisure essentials and spring maxi dresses all the way to standout shoes and boxy suit jackets.

Packing for the holidays always seems easy - until you're staring at your empty suitcase and wondering what prompted you to go anywhere in the first place. You know what's nice around the holidays?

Because you never need as much as you think you do. A few beloved basics plus fresh socks and underwear for each day you’re gone and you’re set.
