Most every new trend starts out seeming just as fleeting as the others—that is, until they outlast the rest (hello, skinny jeans!). The latest trend-turned-classic? The bucket bag. Of course, not everyone has the resources to purchase a brand-new Mansur Gavriel. Lucky for us, when a particular style becomes so popular, there are chic options at every price point, and affordable bucket bags are no exception.
Perhaps it’s the contemporary shape that keeps us coming back, but we simply can’t get enough. With the variety of options available, too, you can’t go wrong. Whether you'll be wearing them as your everyday handbag or reserving them for those more formal occasions, they’re one of the most versatile purses you’ll have in your collection. Sport a classic bucket bag with a simple tie, or go with one that has beaded embellishments. Really, you can’t go wrong.
If you’re finally introducing one to your closet or just looking to add another to the bunch, we’ve rounded up the coolest bucket bags to wear year-round. The best part? They all ring in under $200. You’ll thank us later.
