1. A Vegan-Suede Bucket Bag At A Can't-Beat Price
This spacious bucket bag has room for far more than just the essentials — like a tablet, water bottle, notebook, and sweater. Crafted of buttery vegan suede, it has lots of pockets and compartments to keep everything organized, and also comes with two detachable straps: one shorter shoulder strap, and one longer, adjustable strap so you can wear it across your body.

2. The Same Bucket Bag, But Made Of Vegan Leather
This is the same bucket bag as above, but it's made of smooth vegan leather with a subtle pebbled texture. Like its suede counterpart, it comes with two detachable straps, so you can wear it as across your body or as a shoulder bag. If you prefer something a bit more glam, the bag also comes in a slightly different style with a gold, chain-link drawstring in place of the leather cord, which is sold on the same page.

3. A Classic Calvin Klein Bucket Bag That Comes In Lots Of Stylish Colors
Featuring gleaming gold accents and a spacious interior outfitted with three pockets, this classic Calvin Klein bucket bag will never go out of style.

4. A Rugged-Chic Bucket Bag From Frye
Like everything Frye makes, this crossbody bucket bag has a slightly rugged look — but upon closer inspection, it actually has a delicate floral pattern etched into the leather. Cinched with an adjustable drawstring, its roomy interior has plenty of space for everything you need and more, and the adjustable crossbody strap makes for convenient, hands-free carrying. It has a bunch of discreet pockets, too.
5. A Mini Bucket Bag In A Statement-Making Color
For a fun statement purse that doesn't skimp on practicality, it's hard to do better than this mini bucket bag by Rebecca Minkoff. Crafted of glossy cowhide leather and finished with the designer's iconic, oversized ring clasp, it would actually make a solid everyday bag for people who tend not to carry around a ton of stuff. If you don't love the green, note that it comes in camel and black, as well.

6. A Quilted Bucket Backpack With A Chic, Chain-Link Strap
With its gleaming gold hardware, chain-link straps, and diamond quilting, this chic, bucket-style backpack looks far more expensive than it really is. Made of quality vegan leather, it comes in lots of cute, solid colors and two-toned combos, ranging from pink and black to bright red.

7. A Sleek, Leather Bucket Bag That Keeps Its Shape
Timeless and versatile, this Calvin Klein bucket bag is elegant enough to make a statement, yet subdued enough to make sense for casual everyday use. Made of supple cowhide leather with a pebbled finish, the envelope-style closure feels slightly more elevated than the typical drawstring, and the gleaming, gold lock clasp adds another glamorous touch. Also unlike most other bucket bags, which are slouchy, this keeps its shape and stays upright. Other highlights include a spacious pocket on the outside, and another on the inside.
- Available styles: 10
8. A Chicer Alternative To Your Gym Or Tennis Bag
This sporty-chic bucket bag is a much more stylish alternative to your standard tennis bag or duffel. Made of durable, easy-to-clean nylon with contrasting white piping, the brand's signature embroidered crocodile adds the perfect finishing touch to the preppy, sportswear aesthetic. Choose from white or navy.

It can be carried three ways: like a basket, on your shoulder, or across your chest.
10. The Iconic Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag That'll Last You A Lifetime
Mansur Gavriel didn't invent the bucket bag, but they certainly perfected it. Their now-iconic mini bucket bag is crafted of smooth, cowhide leather, lined in a contrasting color (red for the black, light pink for the camel), and features a wavy trim at the top and a long, drawstring closure that can be tied into a pretty bow. This is a bag that'll last you a lifetime without ever going out of style, so go ahead and make the splurge.
