When it comes to handbags, the trend for the last couple of years has revolved around oversized bags. These large handbags, especially when packed to the brim, can put a strain on our backs and posture. There is a slight shift now towards smaller, more compact handbags - ones that provide just enough room for the essentials. Check out a few compact shoulder bags below.

The combination of neutral and pastel colours is a favourite for this season. This trend will no doubt be filtering into the market of compact shoulder bags. This mini shoulder bag features a subtle colour block design. It has a fold over flap, gold-tone hardware, and long shoulder strap. Pink can sometimes be a hard colour to incorporate into an outfit, so try and keep your clothes as neutral as possible.
