Bucket Bag Beauties

I have seen the bucket bag trend come and go before without giving it much thought and interest. With it in full force for this spring/summer season, however, I started to notice these bags taking on a structured, sophisticated look despite being (to be frankly honest) just a big pouch. The bucket bag was originally created to be a "stylish, yet sturdy method for transporting five bottles of champagne" - which makes me think: 1) Women really partied back in the day & 2) interesting in how it evolved in the fashion world. As with most trendy items, it can be difficult to find a stylish choice that is fairly reasonable in price - but I was able to find some options that will not break the bank. Below are my top picks that would be great for the warmer months and would carry through as this style of bag continues to live on.
