The 10 best beach bags to get you holiday ready
These 10 beach bags will make you wish summer never ends. From straw bags to netted shoppers, these are the slickest beach bags to take you from beach to bar and beyond the shore!
Whether you’re taking a day trip to the Hamptons or getting your party on in sandy Ibiza, you are going to need a chic and useful beach bag for your necessities. A no-go is the leather tote that you carry to work everyday. Luckily, there are a lot of stylish options at the moment that will keep you looking cute, while carrying your holiday wardrobe essentials - without looking like a crazy bag lady.
We’re still seeing the natural texture trend with raffia, straw, bamboo totes and basket bags everywhere and pioneered by designer, Jacquemus. These textures won’t be going anywhere for a while, because they are so practical for the sand and wind, but are guaranteed to elevate your swimsuit.
Which bags to bring to the beach?
1. Straw and round
Straw bags aren’t a new invention, so the key to making them „now“ is to choose a circular shaped one. This sets the bag apart from the boxier straw bags and is a perfect addition to your summer accessory collection. These bags have a lightweight material (so easy to carry) and their natural straw color goes with everything.
2. Plastic but fashion
Not only are these bags super useful - especially when you want all your things visible from the outside, but these transparent bags also give you an instant cool factor and work well for other Summer activities.
3. Wooden beads
Want a bag that pairs nicely with your jean shorts or dramatic white dress? Go with the natural looking wooden-bead bag.
4. Netted bag
You might have to keep your AirPods in check, because the mesh net bags are on trend and here to stay. Apart from smaller items poking out of the holes, they are very practical on the beach, as a reusable grocery bag and really do look cute as a purse as well.
Neon colors were EVERYWHERE on the Spring/Summer '19 runway and if you’re not really feeling this trend, try it out with an accessory. The neon bag will give your look a pop of color and won’t look out of place on a bright and sunny beach.
6. Structured wicker
We all know the iconic woven wicker bags, but these are much more sophisticated and go beyond just a picnic. Also, if you’re looking for some extra protection, the sturdier materials will do the trick.
7. Bright embroidered
If you’re looking to add a little life and color to your look, these jazzy embroidered totes come in beautiful styles.
8. Bucket bags
You most likely already have a ton of strappy and crossbody bags in your wardrobe, but do you have a bucket-shaped bag? Well, look no further, here are some cute must-haves.
9. Handkerchief details
Perhaps this is more of a detail to add to your accessory rather than an actual bag, but this is the easiest summer trend, as you can tie a silk scarf to any bag you already have. Or you can always use it as an excuse to buy a new purse that comes with a beautiful handkerchief - your choice!
One of my personal holiday favorites, pompoms - again more of an added style than a bag. This trend pops up every Summer and adds some fun and playfulness to your accessory.
If you're not vacation ready after seeing all these beauties, then I don’t know what will inspire you. If you don’t want to purchase a completely new bag for the beach and would rather just upgrade last season's bag, then remember you can simply add a silk scarf or some pompoms to your existing beach bag and voilà, you're a trendy beach bum.
