LILI'S PICKS OF THE WEEK

Whether you’re a one-purse wonder or a handbag-for-every-occasion trendsetter, online shopping for your next tote will yield a ton of options for every style and budget… and that can make it tough to pick the perfect bag for your look and price range.

One of the most popular purse styles is the bucket bag, which features a nice open interior, an easy closure, and plenty of room for all the must-haves you carry regularly. We’ve assembled some of the coolest ones from around Amazon and ranked our top five faves.

1. Westbronco Crossbody Bucket Bag

WESTBRONCO Women Handbag Leather Designer Crossbody

This vegan leather handbag is one of the most gorgeous on our list, offering the best mix of aesthetic, function, and price. For a faux-leather, the grain and shine are really nice, and the cute shoelace front and metal rivet accents add a unique look. Soft to the touch yet well structured, this one will stand up to a busy lifestyle.

We love that there are both natural leather-look finishes as well as stylish colored and two-tone options! Blue and grey are especially popular for spring and summer. The Westbronco bag has fantastic reviews, even from customers who typically look to designer labels for their accessories. Favorite features were the quality of the vegan leather and the size.

This bag offers a magnetic closure, two interior slip pockets and a zipper pocket, as well as a key strap so you can easily reach your quick access and valuable items. Bottom studs provide a sturdy base to avoid falling over and two should strap lengths add versatility. At $58.99, this mid-range bag may be higher on our scale here, however, it is a great find while still being affordable.

2. Afkomst Bucket Bag

AFKOMST leather Bucket Bag

This super-cute purse has a slightly boho feel that is so on trend and can take you from brunch all the way to an evening concert without having to switch out your contents. A nice small vegan leather grain is a great look, and in addition to a magnetic snap, the bag also has a convenient drawstring closure.

Three inside pockets, a flat bottom, and both shoulder and crossbody straps add to the functionality of this tote, and customers love that it stands up well over time as well as its overall capacity. Cute, simple colors include staple black and brown, or more interesting orange and yellow for a vivid pop.

Ringing in at just $29.99, the Afkomst bag is suitable for any budget, and highly recommended if you love to carry your life in your purse.

3. Montana West Tote

This classic carry-all is by far the biggest option that made our list, and could easily be used as a laptop bag as well. This is also the only bag with an exterior pocket, which we love for quick-access phone or key storage.

The vegan leather is advertised as anti-scratch, which means this bag can tackle even your busiest day, and the durable, dual length straps will keep you comfortable while you’re at it. A detachable zipper pouch makes it easy to take only the essentials on short errands, and details like rolled corners and gold rivets add a high-end feel.

Buyers rave about the colors of this beautiful bag, and many plan to get a second since, coming in at between $29.99 and $36.99 changing up the color to match your outfit is absolutely affordable.

4. Kate Spade Marti Bucket Handbag

We just couldn’t get through a list of purses without adding one Kate Spade to the roster. While this is by far the most expensive bag, we highly recommend keeping an eye out for deals on the official Kate Spade site – they are known for their amazing sale prices and seasonal colors!

This tote has a unique design with two bucket compartments separated by a central zip pouch, and the twist lock closure is in the shape of the brand’s signature spade icon. Made from real leather and with a microsuede interior, buyers love the soft and smooth feel.

Perfect for the brand-conscious fashion lover who is willing to venture up a price point to invest in a single, quality piece that will last, the Kate Spade comes in fourth on our list.

5. Kilamal Drawstring Bucket Purse 2-Piece Set

drawstring bucket bag

Here is a bag for those who appreciate minimalist design and affordability. A simple drawstring bucket bag is upgraded with an adjustable strap and a useful zipper pouch that can act as additional inner storage or a standalone accessory or makeup bag.

The PU leather has a nice sheen and look, not too shiny, and customers are in love with the soft, real leather-look exterior as well as the faux-suede interior and the amount of storage for a bag with a relatively compact exterior size.

Available in two colors, and sitting at the $25 mark, this multi-functional bag is an ideal choice to get options on a modest budget.
