From grown-up basket bags to luxe utility styles and chic totes, we've rounded up the summer bag trends we can't wait to get our hands on this season.

 

Shop Bags  

 

 

Tote 2.0


Micro handbag trends are great and all, but if you're the kind of person who carries their life in their bag from dawn to dusk, you need a sidekick that doesn't mess around. You’re in luck - the roomy tote bag trend is on the upswing for summer, and not only are they back, they’re supersized enough to accommodate the woman that wants to take everything with her – and we mean everything. If the parachute-sized bags of the runway are a little OTT for your morning commute, a sizeable tote will do the trick.

 

 

 

Basket bags

 

If you’re on the look-out for an easy way to inject some jolly holiday spirit into your wardrobe, then a basket bag is just the thing. If you worry that a wicker accessory might not fit into a city setting, think again. Since their revival last summer, basket bags have become a luxury fashion piece that bring an effortless touch to just about everything from tailoring and denim to dresses. This summer, expect to find all manner of interesting, unexpected shapes from totes to mini buckets on the menu.

 

 

 

Striped bags


Classic stripes and summer go together like gin and tonic and are the design detail that’ll be catching our eye this summer, giving our everyday bags a whole new lease of life and lending them a high-fashion feel with minimum effort. Let a patterned bag lift the mood of easy tees and denim combinations and bring a playful twist to your white summer dresses. From bold, graphic stripes to softer, linen iterations that are perfect for summer holidays, there’s a style to suit your every mood.

 

 

 

Utility bags

 

A heavy dose of practicality is currently sweeping the fashion scene, with the perennially cool utility trend demonstrating that function and aesthetics can happily coexist. Once the preserve of snap-happy tourists, multi-pouch, hands-free and utility-inspired bags gaining style-steam for summer. Try styling a belt-bag to taper your floaty summer dress or slung over an oversized linen blazer or a mini backpack worn over a linen utility jacket with relaxed denim. If you have summer holidays packed with sightseeing planned, this trend is a style no-brainer.
