The humble net market bag has ascended to fashion stardom. Once reserved for mere fruits and veggies, the practical grocery tote has now taken center stage in the arms of the street style set, fast becoming the fashion girl's favorite It accessory. While natural colored cotton is and remains a classic, the string bag was spotted on the streets during fashion week in a variety of lively colors—from vibrant pink to electric blue—adding a unique (and thrifty) finishing touch to every outfit. Skip the veggies and instead fill yours with a chic purse, pouch, or wallet. Or wear it alongside your contrasting top-handle purse (as pictured above).
Oh, and did we mention how affordable they are? You can buy most market bags for less than $20, but if you're in the mood to spoil yourself, opt for one of the fancy iterations on the market right now. Either way, the unpretentious shopper will last you a lifetime. And bonus if you actually have to stop to get groceries on your way home! Take on the trend with one of these cool net bags below.
