3 Essential Bucket Bags for Spring

The bucket bag is a fun trend to embrace because it allows you to carry all your essentials in style without looking like you’re headed to the office or the airport. It masks a spacious bag with its cute shape.

Although there are many designers worth showcasing, I plan on showcasing a colorful designer bucket bag and bags that work as a way to complement a pop of color. A gal should invite spring with a proper explosion of color in time to parallel the lovely, blossoming season.

My first feature is a well-rounded bucket bag, literally. It comes in various gorgeous color options such as peach and aqua. My favorite is the snazzy “Leche” color. This color goes with everything while being uber sophisticated. The all over studs on this bag are the same color as the bag so it tones down the trend and allows this bag to be a classic.

My next option is “Bright and Bold.” Since those two words go hand in hand with the spring season I found it to be a perfect bag to highlight. With daylight savings around the corner, I get motivated to think vibrant when it comes to fashion. I can’t wait to see the light sky longer, which always makes me feel more comfortable implementing more color in my outfits.

This next feature is one of the brightest Gucci bags. The Gucci bucket bag is a burst of fuchsia that will steal your heart. Allow it to take the lead or have it accompany your other bold colors and have the bag share the spotlight.

If you prefer a dainty look, then you will adore this structured bucket bag from Tory Burch. It reminds me of my first handbag my auntie sewed for me. It’s feminine because of its construction, but also bold. The bold aspect of the bag is nicely executed due to the blue stitching. The stitching accents the bag and gives it the appealing charm that ultimately makes the bag.
