Bucket bags are back like they never left and Hollywood’s most stylish celebrities are embracing the unique silhouette in a whole new way this season. What started as an obsession with the sleek, wear-with-anything crossbody from the likes of Mansur Gavriel and Loewe quickly escalated into a statement-making competition. Now, when ladies shop for bucket bags, they’re reaching for the most unique variation they can find — think quilted denim with a nod to ’90s fashion, floral embroidery, and pom-pom add-ons all included.
Taylor Swift styled a croc-embossed bucket bag from Stella McCartney on a recent girl’s night outing in New York City alongside Selena Gomez and Brittany Mahomes, while Katie Holmes capped off her summer wardrobe with a raffia bucket bag in tow. Karlie Kloss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have made their affinity for bucket bags well-known over the years. And in any given street-style roundup, you’re bound to find a few A-listers rocking one of Mansur Gavriel’s (many) iconic bucket-bag silhouettes.
As for this season’s styles, the bags aren’t meant to blend in — but that’s not to say you can’t find designs that go with the bulk of your wardrobe. Avant-garde shapes in plain colors are just as eye-catching when they come complete with oversize circular handles or raffia finishes. The satchels we’ve gathered below aren’t typical, but they do appeal to a wide range of styles, which only means one thing: you’re bound to be swinging a brand-new bag in no time. Ahead, we rounded up the best bucket bags to shop this season — from affordable Amazon styles to coveted designer pieces and more.
