Lolli and I are off to Hawaii with the family in a few weeks, and I can’t get enough of the basket bag trend for beach vacations and day-to-day summer style this season. Woven or ‘basket’ bags, a fashion accessories trend WHERE THE GENERATIONS MEET™ for Lolli and me, come in every shape–from oversized totes, to mini clutches and crossbody purses. The neutral colors and textures make for the perfect summer accessory with any outfit. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite totes and basket bags for summer, along with a handful of options all under $100! Aloha, here we come!
A quality “beach bag” is a must-have travel piece to stow items for easy access en route to the pool or sand, as well as for items that don’t quite fit in your suitcase. It’s not necessary to compromise on style for practicality. Basket totes make for the perfect beach vacation bag, as they can go from your airplane carry-on straight to the cabana! We love a sturdy, monogrammed tote bag for our vacations to the beach. This rainbow tote is festive, fun and perfect for summer!

Basket bags make for the perfect daytime bag, as they can be worn to the office, on a date night, or to any neighborhood weekend activity. I’ve even carried a wicker clutch to black-tie weddings in the past! A statement bag is the perfect way to pull together a look, and unique ones are often great conversation starters! I enjoy carrying a structured mini bag as an everyday go-to, where as Lolli prefers larger cary-all bags.
