The Stylish Summer Bag Every WWW Editor Owns

In case you’re wondering, there’s a bag every editor at Who What Wear carries once summer hits. No, it’s not necessarily the latest It bag. Instead, it’s a back-to-basics option that’s equally acceptable at the office and a casual day at the beach. We’re talking about the basket bag.

The stylish bag has cool-girl appeal—not only is it editor-approved, but it also has a long history of fashionable fans. It’s been carried by everyone from Jane Birkin to Jeanne Damas to on-the-rise It girls like Sabina Socol and Louise Follain. And we’ve never gone wrong by following their lead. We suggest pairing the basket bag with high-waisted trousers and pointed mules for the office or a flowy floral dress on the weekend.
