I am the kind of person who carries too many essentials in her everyday bag. At any given time, I have my makeup bag, my computer, a book, and practically half of my apartment—a change of shoes! 15 pens! The list goes on. That's why I've switched from a classic carryall tote to a more structured bucket bag. It's the unsung hero of the bag world and one of Fall 2023's most-trendy bag styles—and if you're like me, it can be an organizational lifesaver. 

No matter the size of your bucket bag, its rounded shape and flat bottom help you keep track of what you’re carrying. Plus, they’re seriously cute and trendy for the season ahead. The larger ones on this list act as a great laptop bag or work bag, and the smaller ones are perfect evening bags. Larger options appeared on the runways at shows like Bottega Veneta for the Fall/Winter 2023 season, while softer, wristlet-style options showed up at Etro that are more akin to a pouch than an actual bucket.

But that was six months ago. Today’s options include a lemon-yellow pick from Tory Burch that’s here to add a splash of color to your wintery all-black outfits. Other versions from Anthropologie come in red, one of autumn’s trendiest colors. Plus, Mango has a great woven bag that will carry you from the end of summer right into the fall.
