New bag styles: rucksack vs bucket

29 Mar

I think the time has come for a new handbag, yay! I’m normally more of a shoe girl than a bag girl, but there are so many fun new shapes available, in lovely fabrics, and they’re really making me want a piece.

I’ve narrowed it down to the two most ‘now’ styles: the rucksack and the bucket (drawstring) bag.

I can see the benefits of the rucksack – great for my commute, and now looking much less practical and much more ‘fashion’ in finishes like leather and Aztec prints. The bucket, I think, is less practical (how are you supposed to carry it?!), yet I find myself strangely drawn to it.

Here are the contenders…













£19.99, H&M













£25, River Island













£30, River Island






£19.99, New Look


Bucket bags

£39.99, H&M It’s real suede, and bonus points for the on-trend for s/s 14 pastel pink.













£34, Topshop (the colour and perforations are very sports-luxe)












£19.99, Zara












£85, French Connection at Asos

Which would you choose?
