In the search for the perfect bag that includes fashion and function, I returned to a classic stand-by in the shape of the bucket bag. Travel plans are ramping up, and I want something that will be practical for flying with my laptop, and that will also perform that elusive trick of taking me from day to night when I am touring a city.

The bucket bag is such a throw back to the 80's and 90's, in all of the right ways. I remember my mother always had one in her arsenal, and no matter how many other bags and purses that came and went, she always returned to the old faithful silhouette of the bucket bag. One cannot tout the practicality of this accessory loudly enough. Through its simplistic shape and design it has remained a classic for good reason. It works with any outfit, looks impossibly chic in a 'just threw this look together' sort of way, and is incredibly practical. Form and style, just the way nature intended.

Some bucket bags are cinched, some are slouchy, some are structured, some are woven, some are petite, and some are large. Fashion is ever evolving, and it should speak to the classic appeal of the bucket bag that it is always included in the evolution, season after season. An item I see repeatedly over the shoulder of different generations, each with its own spin and identity. 

Follow along to see the bucket bags that have me drooling, and shop my edit below.
