Basket heaven

At one time basket bags were only purchased for beach holidays but it looks like they’re here to stay. Not only are they the perfect accessory to pretty much any outfit this season but they’re also becoming one of the must have buys for our interior needs. They come in all shapes and sizes and interior wise they are perfect for storing throws, magazines, tea towels, kids toys; just about anything can be hidden away in them. And they simply look chic next to the fireplace or on a shelf.

For the fashion basket they look great left just about anywhere in your home. When it rains, these too can become a stylish place for storing bits and bobs. Why not use your favourite summer fashion accessory to keep your scarves in? There’s so many styles around right now that it won’t take too much convincing that you need another one for your collection, I’ve just added two to my watch list on eBay! The options are endless, do you want to go for a gigantic shopper that you can just throw everything in, or perhaps a smaller round version that you can sling over your shoulder for a night out. If you don’t already have one then I definitely recommend investing, these bags will bring you so much joy!

If you haven’t seen anything yet then try shopping on Etsy or even hunt down a vintage basket bag, many vintage stores will have stock of raffia and woven bags, but if you see one in a shop then snap it up as you probably won’t see it again! Have you spotted a basket bag you love?
