The Top 5 Minimalist Handbags For Understated Style

If your style is more minimalist, logo-heavy bags might not be your vibe. Look to the street style snaps of Copenhagen fashion week, and our favourite fashion cool girls generally opt for minimalist handbags without any in your face details, keeping it simple and neutral to suit anything and everything. But with so many brands opting for bold monogram prints or metal embellishment, it can feel tricky to find the perfect investment bag that doesn’t scream designer. For a focus on the quality and classic finish rather than the label, there are so many great options for toned-down luxury bags that will look chic without screaming about the cash you splashed. For the top 5 understated bags, here are our favourite minimalist handbags that aren’t too logo heavy.

With subtle detailing and a small, understated Coach logo on the toned-down metal clasp, this is a perfect option if you’re looking for a handbag that screams style over branding.
