The Best Basket Bags for Summer

The Best Basket Bags for Summer

Loewe Summer Basket Bag

Last summer I bought this Loewe basket bag and for a second had buyer’s remorse. Realistically, how often was I going to use this bag?! And now here I am making a blog post about the best basket bags for summer!

It turns out I fell in love with the basket bag; this summer it’s my go-to bag. I love this bag’s pop of yellow because I never wear yellow. Having it as an accent color on the bag makes every outfit more summery without having to go shopping for a yellow top I’ll never wear.

Below, I’ve rounded up the best basket bags for summer by price point and occasion (Everyday/beach/pool, date night and evening, and occasion / wedding guest).

But I also had to share that when I went to Dallas for Memorial Day, I couldn’t help myself from borrowing my mom’s larger basket bag from Madewell. It’s the perfect size for running errands, as a beach or pool bag, or heading to brunch.

The Best Basket Bags under $250

When I was pulling together a round-up for basket bags under $250, I discovered a new brand that I’m now obsessed with – Mercedes Salazar. Mercedes Salazar is a Colombian artisan who also makes stunning jewelry. I love the playfulness of her brand like this seashell bag and all the colors she uses. Perfect for summer.

Best Basket Bags For Errands, the Beach and Pool, or Everyday

These bags are the perfect size for everyday activities or going to the beach or pool.

Best Basket Bags for Evening and Date Night

For a moment I was hesitant to bring my Loewe basket bag out to restaurants because it doesn’t hang on a chair easily and placing it on the floor isn’t ideal. Nothing a bag hook can’t handle though!

Best Basket Bags for Occasions and Weddings

I love a clutch or small bag for a summer wedding vibe. Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough places to go to take bags like this given the seasonality of it, but why not have fun with the summer wedding guest look and go for it?

We can’t leave out the iconic basket bags from the French brand Sezane. This is one of their most popular categories. While I don’t own one, I’ve seen them in real life at the Georgetown pop-up up and while they’re a splurge, I can see why people obsess over them!

If you’ve been curious about Sezane in general, but have been uncertain about the sizing, I’ve put together a Sezane Size Guide that you can check out.
