Mini bags are nothing new. However, summer’s hottest trend in handbags is even smaller yet still functional and definitely for the minimalist gals. Enter: Cell phone bags.

Cell phone bags hold — you probably guessed it — your phone. However, a few of them have spots to keep a few cards, your keys and maybe (maybe!) even a chapstick. Essentially, if you’re a woman on the go, or you simply like to leave the house with little in your hands, this bag is for you. They’re also great for traveling.

Another plus is that due to their tiny size, these bags generally don’t cost a ton. Even if shopping high-end designers is kind of your thing, you can usually get the cell phone bags for less than a crossbody or a baguette bag. For example, you can toss a Gucci or a Fendi cell phone bag around your body for much less than the brands’ regular crossbody handbags. Of course, you can also shop more affordable, but just as chic bags for much less as well.

Take a look below at 11 of the hottest cell phone bags out there right now, arranged from least to most expensive, and grab yours before summer starts.
