The Basket Bag

3 years ago by

I don’t need to tell you how cute basket bags are (really cute). Like a popsicle, wearing one feels like the perfect summer treat. Unlike a popsicle, you can carry it around the city without developing an urgency to eat it before it melts down your arm.

Add a basket bag to your outfit and transform from “It’s so hot I’m only wearing clothes because it’s socially expected of me” to “Are you a mirage or do you actually look that chic in this devil’s armpit they call summer?”

But here’s the secret to basket bag success: it needs to be functional and, if possible, sturdy too. Take it from the girl who re-secured the handles of her beloved basket bag with gaffer tape and safety pins this week only to have to carry it home like a clutch after it broke again.

The Lilleth Bag from Cult Gaia has both of these properties, which is why it’s so special. Merged with its 60s-esque accordion shape, which folds completely flat for ultimate mobility, it’s unique, practical, and damn good looking.
