Which Beach Bag Should You Buy?

If there's one thing we advocate, it's making clever purchases that will serve you for a long time and in multiple ways. Our summer investment piece? Beach bags. Forget the bright, text-printed tacky kind from our teenage wardrobes - we're talking beach-to-bar, Capri to City, Mykonos to Manhattan. But where do you start? Scroll down to see which of the three categories would best work for you.

These woven bags tick all the beachy boxes and come in all the weird and wonderful shapes that are of-the-moment. They'll bring a little cool to a bikini but look just at home at the bar with your favourite wrap dress.

Not only is this bag space-saving, but it's the chicest version of a beach bag imaginable. Use it as hand-luggage on your travels, a your holdall on the beach and your cary-all in the city. Because bags are for life, not just for the beach.

If summer brings out your more playful side then this could be the bag for you. Opt for Miu Miu's woven basket if you're into colour year-round, or something more subdued if neutrals are more your thing.
