Small bag lovers, confused about which classic Chanel mini to get? Here's a guide that will walk you through the differences between these adorable bags.
Square mini - 6.7 x 5.2 x 3.1 inches with 21 inch shoulder drop
Rectangular mini- 7.9 x 4.9 x 2.8 inches with 23 inch shoulder drop
The Chanel square mini is a touch taller and a tad narrower. The rectangular mini is slightly shorter and little bit wider. Though the rectangular mini looks like it would hold more, they actually hold about the same amount.
Both bags can support essentials assuming that your wallet is compact and not a long wallet. :) Both bags can hold a small wallet, cell phone, small ring of keys, and a lipstick. For more details, check out this review of the classic Chanel square mini bag.
Both classic mini bags have 1 small zippered pocket and 1 open pocket in the interior and 1 back pocket on the backside.
The biggest difference between the bags is the shape and the shoulder drop. Do you prefer the square shape or the rectangular shape?
The rectangular mini has a slightly longer drop length of 23 inches compared to the square's 21 inches. This makes the rectangular more suitable for crossbody wear and the square for on-the-side shoulder wear.
And, there you have it. The rectangle and square mini are not different in what they can hold. The biggest consideration is how you like to wear your bags and what shape appeals to your eye more.
Which do you prefer? We'd love to hear your preference in the comments. :)
