Your office outfit is complete with a luscious leather laptop bag, and your evening wear consists of beautiful clutches. Your off-duty style is polished off with a chic over the shoulder bag and you’ve got parenting in the bag with large oversized totes.

However, you seem to have totally lost your way with beach bags. Fact is, holiday bags demand one thing – and that’s storage, which is why many of us favour functionality for storing snacks, water, towels, sarongs and SPFs. However, who said that functionality had to be about forgoing style?

Every beach lover should know that it’s possible to be practical and stylish, especially with these 5 summer beach bags:

 

Coffee and White Straw and Cotton Tote

Looking at this bag, you might make the mistake of thinking it’s one for your daywear collection. However, look again and you’ll see that the fabric composition is actually paper straw and cotton – making it uber light for the beach. Not only this, but the addition of some hardware just goes to prove that style can be brought to every occasion.

 

 

Natural and Gold Striped Canvas Beach Bag

Inspired by resort fashion, currently infiltrating all the catwalks, this bag is crafted from a neutral colour palette which serves to make it great for accessorising with all swimwear. The luxurious leather and hardware details make for a stylish statement should this bag find its way from the beach to bar.

 

 

Navy and Gold Striped Canvas Beach Bag

If you want to make a really chic beach statement, opt for a gold and stripe statement. This bag is inspired by the marina trend currently taking pride of place in every designer’s collection, it completely epitomises the style found only in the world’s finest resorts. Specially designed with a zip closure, this beach bag is not only practical but an essential beach accessory!

 

 

Colour Block Cotton Beach Bag

Now we are in summer, it’s important to switch up fabric choices and opt for something lighter which means forgetting about leathers and heavy suedes and flipping to cottons, canvases and PVC which can be wiped if it gets into contact with water or sand. This colour blocked design is developed as a ‘hold it all’ bag, so you can throw in all small and large beach essentials and carry them with comfort on your shoulder.

 

 

 

Oversize Black Woven Straw Beach Bag

Sometimes days turn into evenings, so why not opt for a beach bag that lends itself to all occasions. This oversized beach bag is crafted from paper straw for a lightweight finish, but is topped with black sequins for something a little bit special. Forget about a bag that purely serves a function, this black beach bag is set to steal the limelight – so make sure the rest of your beachwear style can keep up.
