Trend Watch: Bucket List


Bucket ListTo be clear, the bucket bag isn’t exactly a new trend – on two levels. For one, fashionistas that have been keeping their eye on their style since the 90s will tell you that this famously boho silhouette experienced its last big boom during that era. For another, the bucket bag made a quiet resurgence last spring. But it seems like today, this round, drum-like slouch bag is popping up just about everywhere, at just about every price point, in just about every colour, print and texture imaginable. Above are just a smattering of bucket bags on the market if you’re interested in jumping on the bucket bandwagon.

Top Row from L to R
‘Fran’ Bag – $330 @ Eleven Thirty Shop – First off, this bag is handmade from Italian leather. Secondly, it’s handmade to order in Toronto. And thirdly, it comes in (at the moment) six cool colours – from eye-catching emerald to cheeky cheetah print.

Hook Needle Tassel Bucket Bag – $38.97 @ Amazon.ca – Designed as a more of a beach bag, the laid back vibe of this particular bag is ideal if you really want to channel that 90s style. Available in both the cream shade shown above and a darker brown.

Kenneth Cole Nevins Leather Bucket Bag – $199 @ Hudson’s Bay – The easiest way to modernize this silhouette is to mix in a vibrant hue like this tropical orange. Also available in a nighttime-ready shimmering silver.

Downing Bucket Bag – $138 USD @ J Crew – Heartbreakingly, this bag was available in a pretty mint green but it appears (understandably) to have flown off the shelves already. Still, if you’re looking for a sturdy, smaller, mid-priced bucket bag, this is a great option.

Bottom Row L to R

Steve Madden Bucket Bag – $129 @ Macy’s – The best feature of this particular variation of the bucket bag are the contrasting details – like the vibrant teal hue shown here offset against the cherry red. Available in three shades with different contrasting trim.

Fringed Faux Leather Bag – $29 @ Forever 21 – Trends are fleeting – if you don’t feel like investing a bunch of moola into a bucket bag but you do want to keep your wardrobe current, check out this affordable find from Forever 21.

Elliott Luca ‘Gigi Bon Bon’ Bag – $130 @ Nordstrom – A versatile twist on a chic statement piece, this cute bucket bag comes in four colours and includes a sturdy handle for when you want to carry it instead of sling it over your shoulder.
