Summer Trend: Basket Bags

Best Basket Bags for Summer

I’m smitten with the basket bag trend this spring and summer as you can see above!  I do think this is one “trend” that is actually a classic much like the bamboo trend I shared a few weeks ago.  I got one of my girls off to camp this weekend and I’m helping another daughter and my hubby get off to a mission trip so today will be a bit short and sweet!

I love spotting trends and sharing them with you especially if I think they are a good purchase and one that will not fade quickly.  I do think that the basket “trend” is not entirely new, however.  We’ve all seen (and love!) the bamboo ark bag that has been popular for a few spring and summer seasons. It’s actually a revival of a bag from the 70s!

Basket bags are much the same but are having a resurgence this spring and summer especially!  This white round wicker basket bag had me at “Hello!” when I saw her at a local shop.  I found here online here and it’s been a very popular item the past month with readers and LikeToKnow.It shoppers alike.

This basket bag from the bamboo post has also been a favorite of readers.  The black leather and bamboo handle make it a classic as well.  This convertible basket bag that I took to South Africa also has a crossbody strap and I’ve loved carrying it day and night.  It also comes in black.

I’m classifying this net bag as a basket bag as well because of the net basket.  This version is a bit pricey and I ordered it but didn’t keep it last fall.  I just didn’t love it for the price.  I saw this version on Amazon and quickly picked it up to check the quality.  Honestly, I’m not sure I can tell much of a difference in the quality of the knotted rope at all.  It is faux leather but for a fun novelty bag, it is a great bag.  I carry it a lot and get a lot of compliments on it.  Many of you have purchased it as well.  It also comes in white which I’m contemplating for trip this summer.

I’ve gathered a lot of other great basket bags that I think have great style and are well priced.  Many of these are also linked in the Summer Style Shops that I shared on Friday so be sure to check them out! I’d love to know your favorites!

    Great bags. I’ve had some for years and don’t think they ever go out of style.

    I love the straw bag trend. I actually have one but I need to pull it out of my closet and put it to work. I think it’s plain enough that a scarf tied to the handle will look wonderful. I just love that Pamela Munson’s Isla Bahia bag, but there are so many great dupes out there, too, as you so aptly pointed out. Your new bag is just gorgeous – love it in white!
