16 Cute Beach Bags For A Day By The Sea

A stylish summer vacay just isn't complete without a statement beach bag. So we've rounded up our fave high street hold-alls ready for you to shop RN.

Beach bags are *major* essentials for a day by the sea.

Whether you’re jetting off on an exotic holiday or are planning to head to a coastal location closer to home, you’ll definitely need to invest in a holdall for your belongings.

Not sure what type of bag to go for? Don’t worry! We’ve done all the hard work for you, trawling both the internet and the high street to find the cutest (and most affordable) designs around. Think pretty patterns, bold colours and chic fabrics.

We’ve also made sure the options in our gallery are super-practical. Considering the fact that you’ll probably want to bring items including a towel, your swimsuit, sun cream, a book and sunglasses, you’re going to need something with plenty of room. You might even want to pack a few snacks so you can enjoy a picnic on the sand. This means the majority of the beach bags we’ve found are sizeable totes. We think you’ll fall in love with the summer slogan baskets by Mango and Revolve. But if you’re not a fan of this shape, we’ve also got a few alternatives: East’s drawstring design will help you nail this season’s 90s trend while H&M’s leopard print shopper will be the easiest thing to sling over your shoulder. TK Maxx’s colourful canvas carrier is super-summery and will make a *major* statement as you relax by the waves.

After a classic beach bag? Zara’s woven straw design will go with everything and Very’s metallic number boasts just the right amount of glitz. We promise Barbour’s striped piece will never go out of fashion. Plus, how perfect is the nautical look for the seaside?!
