I bought a version of this bucket bag last year (remember?) and have been hooked on ‘em ever since. I just adore their casual chic vibe — is it weird to admit that slinging one of these babies over my shoulder when I walk out of my apartment actually makes me FEEL cooler? (And in that department, I always accept the help). I like that whether you have only a few items stored in a bucket bag, or whether it’s stuffed with a scarf, camera, and lots of other junk, they tend to look good slouchy or full. And, since the trend has caught on again, the options available right now are endless — just in time for summer! My style is decidededly not hipster, but there’s no denying that an easy, breezy bucket bag paired with shorts, leather sandals, and a loose, flowing tank is pretty much the only way to go when temps are 90 degrees and higher.
Have you invested in a bucket bag yet? Which of these do you like?
