best minimalist bags

When it comes to Olga Berg’s style, you know we love to get dressed up and rock a glam look. However, there are times when even we must admit that minimalist bags are called for and you can bet we have a few go-tos in our handbag repertoire. Here’s a roundup of our faves for 2024 - they’ll easily take you from the office to cocktails and work with whatever outfit you’re wearing on the day! 

What is a minimalist bag anyway? 

Just so we’re on the same page, let’s talk about what a minimalist bag actually is. As the name suggests, it’s a bag that’s quite minimal in style. It’s not too showy, there aren’t overly obvious branding signs and there’s not too many design elements. They’re more on the understated side of the style spectrum and work really well with a casual outfit or with a cocktail look if you don’t want to detract attention from your dress. 

Why invest in a minimalist handbag?

  • Versatile
  • Functional
  • Timeless
  • You’ll get your money’s worth as they work with any outfit and are understated enough that they’ll never detract from your outfit.
  • Made to last 
  • Durable

What features to look for when buying a minimalist bag? 

When it comes to a minimal style handbag, there are a few things to look out for: 

  • Colour: To make the most of the versatile nature of these bags, opt for a colour that will suit the majority of your wardrobe.
  • Style: You can find crossbody, shoulder bag, tote bags, and clutches that are all minimalist on our website. Choose one that works for your individual style. 
  • Comfort: Choose a bag that’s comfortable to wear on a daily basis to get the most out of it.
