Every now and then a trend comes around that completely divides opinion, and that can certainly be said of the fash pack’s latest arm candy obsession.
Now that summer’s here, hoards of bloggers have packed their stylish bags and headed for warmer climes. In tow? The beach bag that has left Look HQ on the sartorial fence.
Yep, net bags are officially back on the fashion map, and they’re no doubt giving you all the nostalgic feels. Probably toted by your mum or gran as she did her fruit and veg shop, these stretchy bags are made for carrying bulkier pieces – NOT your hotel room key.
We’ve clocked countless Insta-stars (including the babin’ @HannahCrosskey) with net bags in hand on their summer hols, using them to cart their towels, suntan lotion and mags (Look included, natch) to the pool.
Given a sleek update in black, the humble net bag has never looked so stylish. The big question is, would you dare rock one?
Sure, they’re definitely not the most practical of handbags on home soil but on an exotic getaway, we reckon they’re just the ticket.
Not only do they look cool, they’ll also take up minimum space in your suitcase – meaning you can take that extra couple of frocks without maxing out your 23kg allowance. S-O-L-D.
While we’re still waiting patiently for the likes of ASOS or Topshop to catch on, we suggest you snap up this £14 number from cool US site The Line instead. Well, you want to stay ahead of the curve, right?
