Trend Alert: the bucket bag
The name is not great, let’s be honest. Who wants to say they are carrying a bucket on their forearm? But the Bucket Bag is not quite as cumbersome as you would think. Only the bottom part is interfaced to form a solid structure while the rest of the bag can expand for all your bits and bobs, big and small. They come with short handles for the elegant and lady like hand held approach or shoulder straps for a casual look.
Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2015 is the go to brand for this trend. Take inspiration from their crocodile textured bags in tan paired with light washed denim for a refreshing and modernised take on the cow girl ensemble.
Forever 21 have some gorgeous and inexpensive bucket bags selling in store and online. The tassels are especially relevant at the moment – why not invest in two trends at once? Slightly more expensive Steve Madden’s blue quilted design should definitely be on your shortlist!
