This Luxury Bag Trend Is Not Slowing Down! A Summer 2021 Must-Have

Think summer and you’re automatically transported to pristine beaches, sandy shores and laid back afternoons. You might not have gotten your well-deserved summer getaway last year, but this summer looks promising. While everyone around us is finally planning their holiday looks, we can’t help but share the one bag trend that is perfect for your summer vacay. The basket bag trend is on the up and up and isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The best part? With so many designers on board, the bag is available in so many colorways and designs. It’s not even limited to vacation wardrobe anymore and will just as easy blend in with your everyday summer attire. That’s the beauty of the basket bag, really. Pair it with a plain dress and sneakers and you’re out the front door in a neat summer look. Add a straw hat, beach sandals and a kaftan – you’ve nailed the beach look. We’re sharing a few of our favourite basket bag designs for summer 2031 and you’ll definitely find one that floats your boat!

The cult favourite Loewe basket bag is probably at the top of every fashionistas list right now. It’s a simple design, featuring hand woven palm leaves, leather straps and an anagram-embossed leather patch. What makes it work? It’s so quintessentially summer. No frills attached. No OTT embellishments. Just a rustic bag that makes you want to take out your favourite summer dress and sandals and enjoy the bright outdoors! You’ve probably already seen it on your favourite influencers and it’s every bit Instagrammable as they make it look. Available in new exciting colors, this one is definitely the it bag for the summer!


A refreshing addition we love is the Jimmy Choo version. It’s shaped like a traditional woven basket and has a yellow ombré blending in with the beige color of the straw. The basket can be closed with leather tie-ups and features a logo keychain hanging from the handles. Think neon dresses and dad sandals for styling! We’ve seen so many influencers on Instagram style these basket bags so there are a ton of ideas you can find too. We’re sharing some on our Instagram stories today, so be sure to follow us there. Our favourite style hack so far is to add a bunch of your favourite flowers to one side of the bag to really channel the rustic spring/summer vibe! If you love your logos then we suggest the Dolce & Gabbana basket bag version. A simple basket bag with bright red leather handles and embroidered logo all across the front. It’s so chic! Take it with you to a bookstore, beach, luncheon or picnic. It’s bold and every bit worthy of a space in your summer 2021 wardrobe!
