From crossbodies and hobos, to clutches and backpacks, it seems as if there is a type of bag for just about every occasion imaginable. In the same token, certain looks and styles seem to hit a high note at certain points in the year, as well. In the summer, for instance, we have festive straw and knit totes. In the fall, the sturdier, roomier bucket bag trend comes into view. And while we can argue that bucket bags in particular have been year-round favorites for some time now, they shine extra bright in the fall months.
Claudia Mahoney, Head Of Content at The Outnet says the wear-with-everything silhouette is one of her favorites, and with good reason. These efficient totes come in all shapes and sizes, making them easy to work into any look. “Bucket bags are endlessly versatile in the styles they come in,” says Mahoney. “You can opt for a laid-back raffia beach bag, go for a more bold fashion statement, or pick a more classic everyday bag. Not only are they versatile to style, they are also endlessly practical and can happily store all your essentials.”
As for her first pick for bucket bags, Mahoney reveals the cult-favorite Staud bucket bag tops her list: “You can wear it as a crossbody or detach and use the chic bracelet top handles for a more ladylike vibe. It feels beautifully constructed, with a simple, but pared-back design, and comes in classic muted colors. (It’s a) wardrobe classic that I will use for seasons to come.”
