Summer is almost over, and it’s time to pack up all my cute straw bags and totes for something a little bit more substantial. Something that says more ‘back to school’ than ‘beach in St. Tropez’. A tote that can withstand the weight of Anna Wintour’s (allegedly) last September Issue with Beyonce on the cover. The bucket bag fits the bill. The trendy new bag could be found on Instagram and all over the runway. Ranging in sizes from mini to tote-like, there’s a bucket bag for everyone. The structural silhouette works in almost any color and fabric, goes from lady-like to rocker chic, can transition from day to night. So what’re you waiting for? New purse glory awaits.

This sculptural mini can be worn crossbody thanks to the shoulder strap, or carry it by the handles for a more ladylike look.
