The fashion elite have been gaga over the bucket bag this year, with $300+ bags selling out across the board. And fall’s bucket bags are a little sturdier — a little more luxe — than summer’s easy-breezy beach versions.
When you think about it, the bucket bag has enormous potential — and not just because it’s currently “on trend.” Most have a uniquely chic shape that can fit a surprising amount of stuff without being bulky and cumbersome. (And of course there’s that slight 90s vibe, reminding us of the mini backpacks of yore.)
And we found 10 gorgeous bucket bags that are affordable enough to work into your fall wardrobe:

This faux-leather version is a little bigger than the rest, but it has that same trendy drawstring-top style. And for that price?!
