The Bucket Bag

The snow is melting, the temperatures are rising, the days are getting longer, and the heat bills are going down. Yes….Spring is finally here! And the BEST part? We get to ditch our puffy, oversize, fur-trimmed, hard-to-move-or-look-cute-in winter jackets & boots! So with your puffers and parkas put away for the next 8 or 9 months, what’s next? Spring may be the hardest season to dress for….well if you live in Pennsylvania anyway.

First of all, layering is KEY for this time of year, so you’ll need a bag that can store all your spring must haves. Ditch the oversize tote this season and stay on trend with a bucket bag. This 80’s favorite is roomy and sturdy enough to store all your spring needs. It’s drawstring gives easy access and the multi straps make for added comfort since you can switch up how you carry it. Inside, besides the regulars like your wallet, compact, and lipstick,  you’ll want a sweater or cardigan, a hat & scarf, an umbrella, and a pair of flats. The structure of this bag makes my heart flutter. I can’t get enough of the bold lines that allow for a slouchy style. So see below how to style and where to get your own.

For those of you who wanted one, it’s probably time to come to terms with the fact that you’re not going to get a Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag for spring (even though it made the list!). The good news is that Mansur Gavriel was on the front end of a trend that has since become huge – bucket bags are spring’s biggest handbag shape trend, and being taken on by everyone!

Bucket bags were seen all over the Spring/Summer 2015 runways and I am absolutely loving this versatile style. From boho chic to polished prep, there’s a style of bucket bag for everyone! Comment below and let me know what you think of the new shape!
