I did a blog post last year all about the basket bags. Ever since then, my collection of basket bags have grown and now I MIGHT own too many basket bags. They come in all shapes and sizes like bucket bags, clutches, crossbody bags, and yes… even a backpack! If you’re looking to purchase a basket bag for the summer, I have gathered the best basket bags out there for you.
It’s impossible to talk about basket bag without mentioning Jane Birkin. She always carried a structured basket bag with a curved handle and detachable top. If you are looking for a similar look, below are some options:
1. Clare V. Woven Bag
2. Topshop Basket Bag
3. Muun Basket Bag
4. Etsy Basket Bag

Striped Jumpsuit (similar here) / Who What Wear PVC Clear Mules (similar here and here) / Straw Bag Right: Caroline Constas Polka Dot Off the Shoulder Top (also available here) / Amo Distressed Jeans (similar here and here) /Dior J’adior Kitten Heels (similar here and here) / Le Specs x Adam Selman Sunglasses (similar here and affordable here) / Straw Round Bag (similar here)
I also really like the tote bag style. The ones that I am carrying are both from Nomah Project. They’re bigger in size so they are perfect for when you go to the beach because you can fit tons of stuff in them. Here are some similar basket tote bags that I am loving:
1. Selfridges Round Straw Bag (Less than $30!)
2. Topshop Black Circular Bag
3. J. Crew Straw Market Tote
4. Hat Attack Rope Handle Market Basket Bag
Left: Two Songs Love Wins T-Shirt / Levi’s Distressed White Jeans (similar here and here) / Round Straw Bag (similar here) / Raye Pink Heels (affordable here) Right: Who What Wear wide leg pants (similar here and here) / A New Day cardigan sweater (similar here and here) / Jimmy Choo heeled sandals (similar here and affordable here) / LPA bag (similar here and affordable here) / Sophie Monet earrings
Another variation of basket bags that I love is the crossbody. They are smaller in size and they are the perfect bag for when you’re just out and about. I have worn this LPA Gia Bag (they are so cute so they’re sold out, but this Target version is just as cute) and this Bembien circle straw crossbody bag (affordable version here).
1. Target Straw Crossbody
2. Urban Outfitters Circle Straw Bag
3. Ellen & James Crossbody Bag
4. LEITH Straw & Faux Leather Bucket Bag (under $50)
Lastly, if you are looking for something more fun, try this Sensi Studio Beaded Bucket Bag. I have also found other not-so-basic options for you:
1. Sensi Studio Beaded Bucket Bag
2. Sensi Studios Sculptured Basket Bag
6. Mango Bamboo Backpack
8. KAYU Jute Tote
What do you think about this trend? Is this something you will be wearing this summer?
