There was once a time when getting dressed up meant slipping into a nice dress and selecting a coordinating clutch. But not anymore. Women are swapping dresses for fancy pants and replacing their clutches with top-handle mini bags.

Some of these styles will easily hold an iPhone, keys, and a lipstick. But there are plenty of designs so tiny that you'd be lucky to squeeze two quarters into. (We're looking at you, Kendall Jenner, and your Jacquemus Le Chiquito).

Either way, you can't go wrong this party season with a structured, boxy handbag. Score bonus points with one in an animal print like faux croc, or in a bold, unexpected color.
