When you think about "French-girl style," what do you picture? Probably someone wearing a pair of expertly-tailored blue jeans, a classic white tee, and a basket bag. The style once popularized by Jane Birkin back in the 1960s and 1970s is having a resurgence for this season, making it one of summer 2023's biggest bag trends. Ahead, we at Marie Claire found the best basket bags on the market to shop this season, no matter your price point or personal style.

Also called "woven bags," basket-style bags can moonlight as the best beach bag or just as a great everyday bag—that is, if you're not someone who carries all of their life's belongings in their daily tote. Basket bags are slightly more delicate by nature of their design, but modern iterations come complete with life-proofing details like leather finishings or canvas fabric inserts that will make them last a little longer despite your daily wear-and-tear. Plus, they no longer exclusively come in the same few shades of brown or tan. You can now shop basket bags in colorways like black or bright white, and some even come with larger-than-life sparkly embellishments, colorful charms, and embroidery. 

Keep reading to shop the best basket bags to channel some serious French-girl style energy for summer 2023. (And if you're on the hunt for for even more summer bag inspiration? Team Marie Claire has also rounded up the very best weekender bags for quick getaways.)
