the bucket list

make room in your closet- there’s a new it bag in town.

Okay, so we've already proclaimed our loyalty to the satchel as our go-to summer staple.

But if you're willing to cheat on your Mulberry Tillie or Proenza Schouler PS1 for a weekend, you should do it with our other accessory crush, the bucket bag. It's not new- cruise eBay or any upscale consignment store and you might score a vintage Chanel- but Alexander Wang revived the trend last year with the studded Diego, and it's been going strong ever since.

The perfect blend of downtown cool and function, this is a style that can carry our book, iPad, wallet, sunscreen, and bikini- all at once. And considering everyone from Chloe to A.P.C. to Old Navy have all followed Wang's lead, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Hey, maybe two-timing isn't such a bad thing. With bags this cute, we're sure your other purses will understand.
