Trend to Try: Mini Crossbody Bags

Walker/Getty Images North America, FameFlynet Pictures, ImaxTree)Here's what you can fit in the itty-bitty crossbody bags currently trending among stars and street-style mavens alike: (1) a credit card, (2) a tube of lip gloss and (3) your cell phone, if you're lucky. And yet despite their limited storage capacity, there's something irresistible about these wallet-sized wonders. For one, they're incredibly easy: hands-free and virtually weightless, the style is perfect for summer festivals, beach-bar hopping and other events that encourage double-fisting.

And then there's the fact that—like the best of warm-weather dressing—they encourage a pared-down approach. Sure, you could fit half of your cosmetics arsenal and bulging wallet in one of the season's oversized clutches. But when you've got a balmy breeze, a glass of rosé and some Pharell on the outdoor speakers, who needs anything but the basics?

Diane Kruger apparently got the memo at last month's Coachella Festival. There, she slipped a leopard-print bag over a cropped striped shirt.
