I’ve always loved baskets. So imagine how happy I am that they’re this summer’s must have accessory? They’re everywhere and available in every shape imaginable. It’s possible to have a different one for every day of the week – plus a few to spare!
To help you find the best of the best, I’ve created an edited collection of my favourite baskets and string bags.
First up, the classic market bag. Perfect for holidays, trips to your local market, swimming pool…the list is endless. You need at least one of these in your life.
The round straw bag. Eminently chic and very photogenic. For instant glamour, wear anywhere from St Tropez to St. Ives. It also looks pretty good worn to your local supermarket.
The humble string bag is back! Another long-term favourite of mine. A bit seventies, a bit granny-chic – and actually very useful. The classic kind screw up in your bag and expand to fit all your shopping – and I love these grown-up handbag versions too.
The embellished basket. Because in 2018, embellishment is king. You need one of these for your holiday this summer – and for days when you need a little sunshine in your life!
The only tough bit now is deciding which one to buy!
