This Bucket Bag Is THE Arm Candy Simi’s Been Eyeing

By  | 

If we had to collectively thank someone for giving the bucket bag “it” status, it’s got to be Mansur Gavriel. While my #UrbanPoor status has left me unable to save up for a Mansur Gavriel original, I’ll be honest it has been lurking on on my bucket list (oh, the irony!) for a while now.

Why? Because no matter how much I love my leather totes and sling bags, I must say I have a special space in my heart for a bucket bag. I own three, with my favourite being a faux snakeskin Mango version in black. It is sophisticated enough to carry to my 9-to-5 work day, and chic enough to add to my evening ensemble while I’m out with my girls. The bag is spacious enough to carry most of my day-to-day essentials, and it isn’t all that big either. One bag, so many functions. Perfect, no?

H&M Small Bucket Bag

The 2016 bucket bag is a slightly updated version — it’s nowhere close to simple. Embroidered, studded, or sequined, with excess use of tassels, bows or fringes, or even in silhouettes¬†that are asymmetrical, those are the kind of bags we’re digging this season. We saw models carrying them at Louis Vuitton, Loewe, Marni, Stella McCartney and other shows.

So I found this sleek bag¬†at H&M that was totally love at first sight. Made out of grained imitation leather with a chic braided trim detailing, this one isn’t your too-huge-to-carry sort of bucket bag. It’s got chic gold hardware, which perfectly complements the blush hue. H&M is such a nominally priced brand, it really has become of my favourites when it comes to scouting fast fashion stuff. And this bag is more proof of that!
