These Basket Bags Will Drive Your Monday Blues Away!

‘I have enough bags!’ It would be hard to find a woman who would ever say that. If there’s something every woman is always thrilled to get more of, is a stylish handbag! So are you excited to know what’s the *hot* bag style that every blogger is obsessing over?

We recently spotted an array of straw bags being flaunted by our favourite trendsetters and guess what, they’re worth getting your hands on. They’re just the kind of arm candy you need for an effortless transition from summer to fall!

The bags have a minimalistic appeal to them with little or no added frills. What really works for this trend is the geometric structure of the bag. We’ve spotted the basket bag in 3 major styles - the tote, the round sling and the Japanese hand fan shaped bag. We love the earthy yet stylish vibe this trend has and of course, the fact that these neutral coloured bags can be styled with just about anything!        

Where To Carry It?

We love the trend for its versatility. You can carry a tote basket bag for a day out at the beach or for a tropical vacation. Especially when you need to carry a couple or more things - a sunscreen, a lipstick and your favourite sunnies, maybe? The more structured, sling basket bags can be taken for a coffee date or for a shopping spree with the ladies!   

What To Wear With it?

Work the trend by teaming it with tropical prints and earthy colours. Here, Masoom has styled her basket bag with a lime green maxi dress and topped it off with a straw hat - making it the perfect vacay outfit! If you’re planning to carry a bag like this to work, wear it with a pair of high-waisted cigarette pants and a tucked in sheer top. We bet it’ll fetch you a few compliments!
