The Basket Bag Yay or Nay?

By Posted on 1 min read 478 views

The basket bag is starting to have a moment. Alexa Chung was recently spotted out and about rocking a Chanel basket bag, the ultimate it girl it just may be time to sit up and take notice of this emerging trend. I remember my grandmother had a bag just like this, and I also remember how silly my sister and I thought it was, we use to look at it and giggle. We could’t imagine that anyone would actually use it as a handbag. Well fast forward a couple decades and suddenly this bag doesn’t seem quite so silly any more. No, it has not caught on as well as say the quilted cross body bag but I think we will be seeing more of this smart stylish accessory. Would you do the basket bag? Do you own one? If not would you consider purchasing a basket bag, or this a little too trendy for you?

    I love the basket bag, or perhaps not love, but I like it. And as you, I remember my grandmother wearing one too. They do still have a rather dusty/old vibe to them, but they are still rather charming! Xx

    It all depends on the shape like the Dolce & Gabbana and Kate Spade

    I do think basket bags look cool but I tend to very practical when it comes to handbags so I’ll just have to admire them on other people πŸ™‚

    I got a basket bag from Target years ago, and it’s really cute, but it didn’t age that well. I like the retro vibe though πŸ™‚

    I really do like this! Perhaps it’s because I’m a lover of picnics…

    I think it’s really cool for a fashion blogger or a fashionista but not for everyday people like me. I think people will look at me funny and ask if I’m going for a picnic….

    I only like the one from Kate Spade, perhaps because it’s pink and doesn’t look so much of a basket πŸ™‚ But I like this kind of trend alert post, well done.

    This is a big yay for me! I’ve always thought it’s such a cool bag to carry in the summer, you know? Mind you…since I’m more of “torn jeans and shirt” kinda gal, it doesn’t go well with most of my outfits, but I still like:)

    I had kind of a blog crash, but thankfully things are solved now! So it’s good to be back and read about the basket bag – I loved the ones you showed here! I do have some, but I use in a room decor, but why not, I can well wear them πŸ™‚ I liked the style very much! Hope you have a great day!

    I agree with “Fashion Folks” comment, I like ti ,b ut not love. Although, I actually have a vintage basket bag that my mum gave me—I loved it, but just don’t wear it often for some reason. <3

    It depends how it looks, Alicia. I don’t owe one, but I don’t mind at all.

    SO much yay! I’m obsessed with these and straw hats – and I already have a straw hat so a woven basket bag is next on my list <3

    Basket bags are beautiful! I’ve always loved them and it’s so awesome that they’re on trend now. My favourite style is the Dolce & Gabbana one x
