There's no doubt about it: one of the most popular handbags of the summer will be the bucket bag. The bag's trendy design is sure to earn you compliments, but is also roomy enough to fit all your essentials (and all those extras that somehow ended up in the bottom of your purse).

Both high-end brands and fast-fashion retail stores have been creating their own versions of bucket bags, and you can find one in any style, whether you prefer something bohemian and printed or sleek and structured.

Check out the outfit sets below for inspiration on how to style this must-have bag

A sporty, perforated bucket bag can be paired with wardrobe basics for a cool, minimal look. A black, racer-front crop top with a matching black maxi skirt sets the foundation for this ultra-chic outfit. Throw on a long cardigan and slip-on Vans for a comfy, classroom-ready look.

Don't forget to mix gold and silver accessories, like these drop earrings, watch, and bangles, to add some extra interest to the look.

Festival attire is so fetch right now that it doesn't matter if you are attending one or not this spring/summer. However, if you have a ticket in hand, the bucket bag is your perfect satchel for the occasion.

Mango had these two adorable fringe bags that pair perfectly with a bohemian style. The sun-adorned crop top, fringe skirt, booties, rings, and choker all combined to create a carefree yet buzzworthy outfit. This cute journal is the perfect addition to capture all your upcoming experiences.

Edgy

A bucket bag can even be styled to complement an edgy, bad girl look. The faux leather bag pairs perfectly with a striped tee and distressed shorts layered with a denim jacket. Complete the cool girl vibe with chunky jewelry and heeled sandals. Dare to wear dark lipstick for a beauty look that complements your apparel.
