After seasons of oversize clutches, bags and totes, I am seeing a new trend in the making. I for one am glad smaller shoulder bags are coming back. It has been years since I have carried a long strap shoulder bag. I am so used to bringing everything but the kitchen sink with me in my oversize bags, my shoulders will definitely sigh with relieve. It is time to downsize and bring only what is necessary. I will clean up and dust off my forgotten shoulder bags in the closet so these poor darlings can see the light of day once again.

I would wear long shoulder strap bags cross body with casual outfits and wear the strap on the shoulder with dressier outfits. What about you, are you ready to downsize and how will you wear this style of bags?
