Style Staples: The Bucket Bag (Summer)

Dear Readers,

Welcome to Style Staples, a brand new series on the style letters!

Want to get the most out of your closet (and wallet)? Build your wardrobe with Style Staples, timeless pieces that transition from season to season. I’m a firm believer that a great collection is built with foundational items that can be worn regardless of time or weather. In this series, I’ll feature classic items that I style alongside current trends all year long.

My first Style Staple is this versatile bucket bag from ASOS. When I first saw it on Hot Pink Style, I knew it was the perfect bag for city errands and my daily commute. The neutral camel leather and contrasting black panels work just as easily with summer brights as fall jewel tones. And that gold hardware? Always on trend. Roomy yet compact, this is a classic everyday style that has a place in all seasons.

For summer, I wore my ASOS bag with a casual tee-and-shorts combo for a shopping date with a friend. Easy, cute, and awfully convenient for keeping my hands free to hold more bags.
