Now the annual British heatwave is here, we can finally get excited about summer accessories and basket bags are top of our list.
The summer staple has seen a huge rise in popularity recently, with Loewe’s basket tote top of shoppers’ lists. It comes in so many styles and colours now, with the classic basket bag with tan leather handles proving one of the most wanted. While we’re a big fan of the classic tote, we’re currently obsessing over the label’s collaboration with Paula’s Ibiza (stocked now on Matches Fashion, btw).
Just as the weather hotted up, Lyst reported that searches for straw basket bags with leather details has been up 50% in the past week. While Loewe’s is the most wanted, Jacquemus, Prada, Celine and Chloé’s iterations have also proved popular with summer shoppers.

If you’re on a tighter budget, there’s plenty more where that came from. Mango, Zara, H&M and & Other Stories have a variety of basket bags with a more gentle price tag and they’ll last you for years. Check out our top 10 Loewe basket bag dupes here too, if you’re looking for arm candy that looks like the designer.
We’ve searched through thousands of basket bags on a mission to find the best. With options to suit every budget and style, here are 18 of our favourites from just £22.99.
