Summer is here, which means it’s time to hit the beach or the pool. We must ensure that our swimsuit, summer hat and, most importantly, our luxury beach bag are still trendy and ready to go, just like we are.

You Don’t Want to Miss Out on These Luxury Designer Beach Bag Trends

Extra Big Beach Tote Bags:

If you see it on the runway, know for sure it’s a trend without a doubt. Oversized beach bags large enough to fit your entire life are all the hype right now, and they have been spotted on the spring 2023 runways of Bottega Veneta, Prada, Max Mara, and many more. A future fashion tip, large bags are also hot in winter 2023; the best thing to do is to put any mini bags to the side and bring out something more effortless and practical. Go big or go home; the bigger the bag, the more trendy you are!

Slouchy Beach Bags: 

As we all know, the 2000s-inspired fashion trend is making a comeback, which means ditching your stiff beach bag in favour of a more slouchy choice. Bottega Veneta, Altuzarra, Chloé, and Gabriela Heart all made a case for the silhouette in their spring 2023 designs, dressing it up with dresses and down with denim. We can’t forget about Max Mara and Ferragamo, who presented the trend with wider silhouettes thrown across the body, demonstrating how practical and casual the style can be. It’s all about being comfortable while also looking fashionable.

Sleek Beach Bucket Bags: 

The iconic straw basket is a trademark of summer, but designers this season introduced modern variations with a city-sleek twist. While conventional straw bucket bags will still be available, as seen in Jacquemus’ spring 2023 collection, watch for bucket bags that mix luxurious elements with typical summertime materials. Raffia, straw, and canvas bucket bags have been updated with leather accents such as caged straps, buckles, or tassels at brands such as Chloé. Staud and Polène also featured structural bucket designs in leather-wrapped wicker and canvas.

Crochet Beach Bags: 

Crochet beach bags are trendy, as seen in Prada’s viral crochet raffia tote. This season, though, we’re seeing an increase in diversity, from top handle carryalls to small bags and beyond. Isabel Marant delivered on her bohemian brand with crochet shoulder bags embellished with fringe at her spring 2023 show. Traditional crochet bags were updated with modern sensibilities, such as knot detailing and distinctive animal shapes, at Chloé and JW Anderson. Finally, at Jil Sander, traditional breezy totes with bursts of colour were given a beach-ready makeover.

What Should You Look for in a Designer Beach Bag?

Trends can only guide you so far; the perfect bag for you is one that matches your personal needs, particularly the upcoming occasion you’ll be wearing it to. And, of course, it must be of great quality because it will endure a long time. So, here are some things to consider when looking for a luxury beach bag. 

Materials: 

When looking for a beach bag, the most important factor to consider is the material. The most popular beach bag materials are natural cotton and canvas, which are comfortable and won’t chafe your exposed skin when they touch you. They are also lightweight, quick to dry, and machine-washable, resulting in a longer lifespan. For a day at the beach, neoprene or plastic are also viable options. If you expect a more active day, these materials may be worth considering because they can withstand some splashing and scratches. Finally, straw is a traditional material for beach bags. While straw is not the most durable or simple to clean material, it does look stylish.

Features:

A beach bag is perfect for a long day at the beach, especially if you’re bringing the entire family. You can put almost anything in there, which is great, but no one wants to spend a beach day searching through a bag for things or leaving the beach just to realise something slipped out. As a result, inside pockets and a sturdy closure are essential characteristics. You will not only be able to store tiny, valuable goods within reach, but you will also be able to safeguard them, reducing the chance of damage and loss. Finally, seek a bag with a soft, wide strap that can take the weight without irritating your shoulder.

Shape and size:

Beach bags come in a variety of sizes, so your bag choice will depend on your wardrobe and beach demands. For example, if you’re a mother of three who has to bring toys, food, and a change of clothes, you’ll need a large, durable handbag, such as a tote. 

Backpacks for the beach are another fantastic option, especially for mothers, because they allow you to travel hands-free. They’re also perfect for beach workouts because they usually have a side compartment for your reusable water bottle, as well as enough area inside to carry a beach towel and swimsuit, as well as any sports equipment. 

If you prefer to pack light, opt for a structured beach bag, such as a bucket or box-shaped bag. These silhouettes have just enough room for the necessities and may instantly boost any outfit. 

Colours:

Finally, consider the aesthetic of your warm-weather vacation. Bold, colourful designs, for example, are appropriate for tropical coasts in places like Hawaii. A more traditional colour scheme, on the other hand, is appropriate for Greece.

Which Designer Beach Bags Should You Avoid?

Of course, you are free to use whatever luxury beach bag you choose, but we do not recommend using any leather totes at the pool or beach. If you prefer a leather bag, make sure it is made of leather that is resistant to water stains, or try to keep it away from water. 

A Luxurious Summer With Your Luxury Beach Bag
