When it comes to accessories, basket bags are without a doubt one of the absolute wardrobe basics to own, whether you’re going on holiday or not, even more so than beach bags – not to mention the fact they tick off one of summer’s most consistent fashion trends.
For several season now, designer handbags such as the Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza woven tote and Jacquemus’s Le Panier sell out pretty much as soon as they hit the virtual shelves, thanks to their fun fun and covetable twist on the otherwise stale holiday staple.
In fact, they’re not the only popular luxury styles, proving customers are more than willing to part with their hard-earned cash for this arm candy staple. Chloé, Gucci and Saint Laurent all have some great options for SS22.
If you’re on a Prosecco rather than Champagne budget, fear not. The high street is, as ever, full of fun styles that’ll complement your favourite summer dress and pair of sandals to perfection.
Mango and Arket are always my go-to for the classic oversized woven tote, but if I’m after something a little more trend-led or an evening version of the staple, Zara and & Other Stories often come up trumps.
When it comes to styling basket bags, you can’t go wrong with paired-back neutral styles, though this season is all about dopamine dressing, so if you dare, do go for bold colours and embellishments.
Finally, don’t be tempted to put your basket bags away once summer’s over. Pick the right design and it’ll be wearable long after summer has gone – the key is make sure you’re going for a larger size to counter-balance the bigger winter clothes. Who doesn’t love an accessory that works hard?
