Swap out your trusty tote and nail French market chic with these 11 basket bags

Cementing themselves as a go-to once the warmer weather kicks in, a basket bag can really can work for any occasion. Though originally used solely when swanning around a French market in search of a baguette, the woven accessory has become a summer staple for beach days and picnics, even replacing our trusty work totes.

But while the bags may have humble beginnings, they have been doing a little social climbing in the last few years. Luxury labels, including Loewe, Celine and Jacquemus, have added leather and logos, with a plethora of high street favourites bringing out new designs every summer season. Worn solely with a swimsuit or to complement a denim city look, a basket bag is guaranteed to be a carefree and cool, yet completely functional, finishing touch. Read on to see our edit of our favourite straw and raffia finds – baguette not included.
