There are a range of trend-forward bag silhouettes out there. In fact, I recently covered some of those key 2023 styles. Well, my mother recently asked me for my advice on which bag shape she should invest in when she decides to refresh some of her accessories down the road. And yep, I told her to try a bucket bag. Now, this isn’t necessarily a "new” shape per se, but to me, it’s one of those timeless silhouettes that really won’t go out of style. And my mom actually didn’t have one in her arsenal yet, so I thought it would be the ideal addition to fit within her more classic wardrobe.

What’s special about bucket bags is that while the shape is pretty classic, designers and brands consistently update the silhouette season after season to keep the vibe modern and fresh. I’m talking about incorporating different fabrics, unexpected details, and the like. Curious about the bucket bags I’m feeling at the moment? Keep scrolling to uncover the best silhouettes for a range of styles.
