Fashion Throwback: The Bucket Bag Reemerges

It’s official: Bucket bags are back. So if you held onto one from a decade ago – or inherited an aunt’s 70s original – you’re in luck. But before you set out on a recon mission to secure said bag, let’s take a closer look at this carry-all’s past.

Bucket Bags Are Back

It all began in the 1970s, when women opted for breezy, easygoing looks that went hand-in-hand with their free-spirited lifestyle. And the bucket bag, with its long, hands-free shoulder strap and roomy shape, fit that to a T. Equal parts form and function, it quickly became a must-have accessory for every woman of the era.

Today, designers have updated this boho style with new materials and luxe accents, making it a true modern classic – and it’s topping every trend list this spring.
