Shopping Bucket Bags: The Trend You’ll Embrace Easily

bucket bags

Say “hello, there, sexy” to the bucket bag! It’s returning as a hot trend at the tail end of 2011 – and I’m sure we’ll see it more in 2012. What is a bucket bag, you ask? Look for a drawstring that kind of pulls the bag together.

People say this was an 80’s trend. I recall mini backpacks as a thing in the early 90’s, but I was too young in the 80’s to know much about fashion other than to know Madonna was (and apparently still is, even with her golem arms) a fashion icon. Permed hair (which, thank God, I didn’t have), jelly shoes, – that’s the 80’s for me. The 90’s gave me stirrup pants and uh, why am I admitting all of this to you? Let’s focus on Bucket Bags!
