From time to time the most civilian items can prove to be the most fashion forward. Take, for instance, Glossier’s pink bubble-wrap zip pouches. These quart-size bags are about as industrial as it gets, but because they come in a pop of pink and are endorsed by a cool-girl brand, they’ve been carried as a clutch by the likes of Leandra Medine.
Our point? Just because it’s not fancy doesn’t mean it’s not cool. This brings us to the point of today’s spotlight: the market bag. Traditionally used for holding that bushel of apples you grabbed at the neighborhood farmers’ market, these netted carryalls also happen to make for really cute summer purses. Bonus: You can spot all of your belongings in seconds flat. If you’re wary of losing your keys or smaller items to a hole, we suggest throwing a small zip pouch inside.
