How to style a basket bag

Basket bags are the new Instagram style fave… but how do you make them look less granny, more chic?

We can always rely on Instagram to tell us about new trends and right now, basket bags are having a real moment on the feed. From loose, low-slung styles to actual picnic baskets, every style maven worth her salt is toting something woven, wicker or straw this summer.

Basket bags can be tricky to style, though – they’re a bit synonymous with grannies, so that ankle-length, high-necked, chintzy floral dress probably isn’t the best option. We’ve pulled together three cute and chic outfits to wear with your basket bag … take a look!


#1: Modern Minimalist

Dial down the granny vibes by teaming your basket bag with a sleek, modern outfit. This Camouflage Print Shift Dress works the monochrome look perfectly – pair with this oversized white denim jacket and these classic Cons to keep it casual.


#2: The New Boho

Forget tasselled tops and embellished belts – we love this floral print maxi skirt with a slogan t-shirt to get the New Boho look. Add some metallic leather sandals  and your basket bag and you’re good to go.


#3: That 70s Show

Channel those Mamma Mia vibes and go for an updated 70s look – perfect with a basket bag swinging off your arm! Wear these denim dungarees with this loose white shirt… and on your feet, it has to be Birkenstocks!
