Bucket Bags Are This Season's Hottest Accessory — Shop Our Favorites Here
Bucket bags are back like they never left and Hollywood's most stylish celebrities are embracing the unique silhouette in a whole new way this season. What started as an obsession with the sleek, wear-with-anything crossbody from the likes of Mansur Gavriel and Loewe quickly escalated into a statement-making competition. Now, when ladies shop for bucket bags, they're reaching for the most unique variation they can find — think quilted denim with a nod to '90s fashion, floral embroidery, and pom-pom add-ons all included.
Taylor Swift styled a croc-embossed bucket bag from Stella McCartney on a recent girl's night outing in New York City alongside Selena Gomez and Brittany Mahomes, while Katie Holmes capped off her seasonal wardrobe with a raffia bucket bag in tow. Karlie Kloss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have made their affinity for bucket bags well-known over the years. And in any given street-style roundup, you're bound to find a few A-listers rocking one of Mansur Gavriel's (many) iconic bucket-bag silhouettes.
As for this season's styles, the bags aren't meant to blend in — but that's not to say you can't find designs that go with the bulk of your wardrobe. Avant-garde shapes in plain colors are just as eye-catching when they come complete with oversize circular handles or raffia finishes. The satchels we've gathered below aren't typical, but they do appeal to a wide range of styles, which only means one thing: you're bound to be swinging a brand-new bag in no time. Ahead, we rounded up the best bucket bags to shop this season — from affordable Amazon styles to coveted designer pieces and more.

An Affordable Bucket Bag
Afkomst Bucket Bag ($29)
While we love a designer splurge every now and then, this bestselling Amazon accessory is proof that you can tap into the bucket-bag trend without having to dish out too much money — and still score on a seriously chic piece in the process. Crafted from a faux-leather material, this functional bucket bag boasts more than 3,000 rave reviews on Amazon's site. Plus, it's available to shop in 12 different colorways, so you can scoop up the bag in a variety of shades.
A Faux-Fur Bucket Bag
What better way to celebrate commemorate cozy season than with an equally cozy bucket bag to tote around? This Amazon accessory is wrapped in a faux-fur composition that resembles the look and feel of classic sherpa. Despite its ample interior space, we also love that it's available in four unique colorways: brown, khaki, white, and black.
A Deep Bucket Bag
Don't let this bucket bag's compact design fool you — users actually hail this accessory for its surprising depth, with a small but mighty structure that's big enough to hold your cell phone, wallet, and even a small water bottle.
A Top Handle Bucket Bag
Is it a tote bag? A large shoulder bag? A classic bucket-bag silhouette? Somehow this accessory blends three different bag styles into one and we couldn't love it more. With a buckled strap, the bucket bag's length is completely adjustable, so you can reimagine it each time you wear it.
A Bucket Handbag
The woven detailing on this top-handle bucket bag gives the accessory such a cool edge — and the under-$50 price tag doesn't hurt either. Complete with a functional exterior pocket and ample interior space, this accessory can comfortably hold all of your essentials and then some. Plus, it seamlessly blends the design of a traditional handbag with the elevated flair of a stylish bucket bag. What's not to love?
A Statement Bucket Bag
J. Crew Santorini Bucket Bag ($88, originally $98)
We typically associate bucket bags with leather and nylon materials, but this glitzy style from J.Crew offers a more statement-making take on the traditional accessory — thanks to its crystal-adorned design, of course. While it doesn't have any interior pockets or compartments, the bag boasts ample interior space that can fit plenty of items — from a wallet to a portable charger to a compact cardholder.
An Adjustable Bucket Bag
This isn't your typical bucket bag — in fact, thanks to its adjustable shoulder strap, it's way cooler. Unlike traditional top-handle styles, this accessory has a convertible design that allows you to carry it like a clutch, handbag, or even a shoulder bag. You really can't beat that kind of versatility.
A Designer Bucket Bag
Coach Willow Bucket Bag ($350)
Hailed as being one of Coach's most iconic (and nostalgic) bags, this designer piece is as practical as it is pretty. Users love the functionality of the bag's magnetic-snap and turnlock closures, plus the dual interior compartments make it easy to organize any essentials you might be traveling with.
A Small Bucket Bag
Looking for an everyday bag that's smaller and more compact? Look no further than this mini bucket tote from Madewell, which combines the practicality of a tote bag with the trendy flair of a bucket bag silhouette. Shop it in gray, black, and white colorways.
A Medium Bucket Bag
Kate Spade Gramercy Woven Medium Bucket Bag ($336, originally $448)
It really doesn't get much more darling than this medium-size bucket bag from Kate Spade. The elevated accessory is the perfect bag to grab for a formal event or date night. Plus, its dual-coloring and sleek gold hardware make it all the more versatile, so you can style it in any season.
A Leather Bucket Bag
Quince Italian Leather Bucket Bag ($150, originally $350)
We have major heart eyes for this leather bucket bag from Quince. The accessory requires a bit more of a splurge, but it's worth it given that it's made from the highest quality materials. With its leather composition, you can trust that the bucket bag will serve as a durable investment that can live in your closet for the longterm.
A Knit Bucket Bag
For a more unique take on the bucket-bag trend, opt for something soft, plush, and simply adorable like this fabric bucket bag from Matches. Small but mighty, the accessory is just big enough to hold your go-to essentials like a cardholder or emergency lipstick. We're obsessed with the bag's baby blue coloring, and the fact that it's lightweight enough to not feel like a nuisance to carry around.
