By now, I’m sure that you’ve seen all over my Instagram and here on Keeping Up With Kyria that I have definitely succumbed to the biggest trend this season: the basket bag trend. Basket bag, wicker bag, woven bag or straw bag, whatever you call these bags of style, they’re suddenly everywhere!
Basket bags are both extremely versatile and a lot of fun. There are multiple ways to dress up a basket bag. My favourite ways are with a scarf or with pompom tassels (as seen here). One of the most popular basket bags these days is this Zara Basket Bag. I mean, how adorable is it?
You may save this style of bag purely for the beach but that would be a crying shame when there are so many opportunities to use it throughout the year.
After seeing it on one too many of my favourite bloggers, I was convinced that I too needed a basket bag. I can only hope that in writing this post, I will have the same effect on you. The best thing about most basket bags is that they’re cheap. Mine was a mere £19.99 which can only mean one thing; I need more.
Are you sick of this dress yet? No? Well you might be once I’ve finished posting about it on Instagram within the next week. I just can’t take it off, OK?! I think I’m in love with it. And does my new basket bag not look insane next to the dress? Dream combo or what? And £45 for the both of them…it was a no brainer.
This particular bag is currently sold out, however I heard a rumour that they may introduce this bag later in the year.
I don’t see the basket bag trend dying down anytime soon, at least I won’t let it! There are so many cool options – both affordable and high end.
Do you own a basket bag?
