Loewe basket bag mini review

loewe basket bag mini review

Pictured: Loewe basket bag mini size /

Raise your hand if you are excited about warm weather; and the upcoming spring and summer seasons? My hand is waaaaay up! One of the hot the trends this upcoming spring/summer season is the basket bag. Another hot trend in handbags is the inverted triangle or “fan” silhouette. This cute little basket bag by Loewe offers both the basket weave trend, and the fan shape trend. Love that!

It’s always nice to have a bag which is small yet mighty during the warm spring/summer months. The mini basket bag by Loewe offers just that. It’s a small tote which fits all my purse essentials, yet still has room for a a scarf, snacks, mask, and hand sanitizer. The woven fabrication is easy to clean if sand gets in, and it has the natural texture we are looking for this upcoming warm weather season. Love!

The Loewe basket bag in the mini size offers more room inside than you would think. I have plenty of space for everything I need! There is also plenty of space left to add my camera, a scarf, mask, and hand sanitizer. I can even fit a snack bag for my kids inside. The Loewe basket bag comes with a thick dust bag in addition to the thin dust bag for storage. The thicker one can be placed inside the basket bag to secure what is inside. You can simply pull the drawstring, and voila! The basket bag closes, and you no longer run the risk of the bag tipping over. That being said, when placed on a flat surface, the Loewe basket bag has good balance and does not tip over.

There are two adjustable straps on the front and back of the Loewe basket bag. I adjusted them a little bit longer so I can push the bag up to my shoulder if need be. Otherwise, this is a great bag to carry handheld, or on your forearm. It’s lightweight, and not bulky. I love an easy to carry bag!

I am looking forward to warmer weather, so I can wear this basket bag often. It will be great for warm weather! The Loewe basket bag also comes in a larger size if the mini is too small for what you are looking for this spring and/or summer in a straw tote bag. Both sizes are priced under $500; how often do you find an IT bag priced under $500? Not often! Love this!

You can also find the Loewe basket bag in yellow leather trim, and white leather trim. I love the medium tan trim since it is a classic color Loewe carries every year in this bag.

Frame Les Second mini tote bag review

How cute is this mini tote bag, which doubles as a cross body bag, from Frame Denim! I absolutely adore this little bag. Mini bags are back in style this year, and this cute little tote bag not only fits right into the spring 2020 trend, it offers a ton of functionality. Love that!

For the spring 2020 season, I wanted a bag I could wear everyday, which fit into the current spring 2020 handbag trends. The Frame Les Second mini tote seemed to be the perfect handbag. It offers versatility, on trend colors to choose from, and the “IT” handbag size of the season. Love!

The Frame Les Second mini tote bag is a smaller version of Frame’s Les Second tote which is a classic daytime handbag. The mini version offers the small silhouette which is on trend this year, without sacrificing interior space. It also offers a cross body strap, so that the bag can be worn on the forearm, by hand, over the shoulder, or cross body. It also has a secure zipper closure, and a slim, interior pocket.

What fits inside the Frame Les Second mini tote bag

The Frame Les Second mini tote bag fits everything we need on a daily basis. It fits a wallet, phone, keys, and lipstick. Even with these daily essentials, there is a still room for a small snack, or small digital camera. It has just enough space.

I’m loving this bag in cheery yellow. It instantly gives off a happy vibe. If yellow isn’t your thing, it is also available in neutral hues, the color of 2020-classic blue, and bright pink. It also happens to be priced under $400. Love that!

This is a great bag for daily wear. It fits everything we need, plus it can be worn several different ways, to fit the occasion. The stamped croc leather is sturdy, and does not scratch easily. It can be tossed around a little bit without showing any wear. I’ve been wearing it out with my kids, while running errands, and for lunch meetings. It’s a great bag!

The Frame Les Second mini tote comes in both stamped croc, and leather. Both have a great look, and offer a sturdy finish.

Which color if your favorite?

Spring 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe

Spring 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe from left: multi-color metallic Chloe bag (read review here) / small yellow tote (under $200) / black satchel (read review here) / small red baguette (under $250) / large and soft clutch (under $1000, hot IT bag) / Gucci phone case (read review here) / small black bag (read review here) /

OK, my spring 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe might be a little bit larger than what you would expect. That is because, as you know, I am a huge handbag fan!

For the spring 2020 season, I tried to touch on all the handbag trends I love. Metallic bags are huge this season, as well as brightly colored handbags.

Small is in. Totes, satchels, shoulder bags, and more are all shrinking for spring. Be on the lookout for small bags which still fit your wallet, keys, and phone. This cute little yellow tote hits two of spring 2020’s trend buttons; it’s bright yellow, and it’s small. Love that!

This little yellow tote bag also has a zipper closure, and a shoulder strap. Versatility is always a must!

baguette trend spring 2020

The baguette is back, and you don’t have to buy the Fendi to rock this trend. This fun little red bag also comes in other colors. It’s affordable, and has two removable straps. It can be worn as a clutch, a retro style baguette, or a regular shoulder bag. Pick a strap to suit the style which matches your outfit the best! Or the mood you’re in, both work. 😉

Phone cases which are actually handbags are also a hot trend, as well as soft clutches. Remember the Bottega Veneta clutch which was spotted all over the streets of New York during fashion week in September 2019, and again in February 2020? Well, you don’t have to spend over a $1000 to rock this trend. The clutch pictured above is well under $1000 and it’s a hot IT item which stores are having trouble keeping in stock. Snag one while you still can! If not, get yourself on the wait list. It’s hotter than hot!

As far as the spring handbag capsule wardrobe is concerned, there is a bag for every occasion in this capsule. The metallic bag is perfect for evenings, but can be worn during the day too. Same with the small black bag. it’s great for daytime or evenings. The other bags are casual, and work well for different events, occasions, and daily routines. I am currently reaching for my black satchel, this little yellow tote, and my small black bag the most. Which bag would you reach for the most often?

When shopping for your spring 2020 handbags, look for metallics, bright hues, smaller silhouettes, and ’90’s inspiration. Which trend is your favorite?
