Turns Out This Classic Bag Trend Is Living Its Best Life

There is no way your go-to black leather cross-body adds any element of excitement to your spring or summer wardrobe. Not to say that classic styles and colors are a bad idea, but once the weather starts to have some fun, so can you. At least that's what we think, which is why we are pushing the basket bag trend like no other this season. Seriously, everyone needs one!

You might be surprised by how many different retailers are stocking this kitschy trend, in addition to how many fashion girls are already on board. Whether it be newly discovered brands like Bembien or cult classics like Chanel, it's safe to say these handbags have officially blown up. It's freaky how much this tiny bag can completely transform your overall look, but let us assure you it can. In seconds flat, thanks to the adorable little picnic-esque carryall hanging from your fingertips, you can become the coolest and most forward girl in the room. Don't lie—you know you want that.

Go on to shop this basket bag trend and to see it in action on street style stars.
