Barrel shaped with a top drawstring closure and shoulder strap, drawstring bucket bags are highly-functional and stylish, perfect for your street style. If you think these bags are too bohemian for you, be inspired by a California fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur for her very feminine but casual chic outfit with drawstring bucket bags. In her blog Viva Luxury, we can see her stylish street looks always looking put together while keeping a bit of edge in her style.
The drawstring closure of the bucket bag is an interesting, textural, and eye-catching. Look for styles that suit your personality though you may end up digging around a lot as some bucket bags are more structured than others. For a perfect casual look, you may go for a neutral-colored bag that will go great with your tee and jeans combinations. Like Annabelle, you may even go for a bag color that matches the color of your top to make your looks more interesting.
If you think these bags are obsolete and quite boring, spice them up by wearing them with current trends. For instance, Annabelle goes for the fashion runners trend wearing a knitted sweater and casual shorts with a pair of sporty-chic sneakers and a drawstring bucket bag making the look more updated and trendy. Other trends like color blocking, print mixing, co-ord, and even jewel tones trend might be great for you to look trendy without compromising functionality.
For an edgy statement, you may go for drawstring bucket bags with studs and spikes, with metallic trims, or even in leather. An all-black outfit, whether a borrowed from boys tuxedo or simply a chic black dress, will go great with these bags. Add more drama to your outfit by going for a pair of boots with studs, spikes, belts, and other edgy trims that will help you achieve that edgy look.
For a feminine and chic look, go for dresses, blouses, and skirts in soft and drapey fabrics, as well as neutral in colors. A classic trench coat with a chic outfit will go best with a drawstring bucket bag in a nude shade. Like Annabelle, add interest to your simple and plain shirt dress with a studded drawstring bucket bag that will be your statement piece.
Since the drawstring bucket bags are less structured like a hobo bag, they can be perfect to create your bohemian or cowgirl-inspired looks. You may go for leather or suede bucket bags with fringes and tassels to create your desired look. Whether you’re wearing a simple tee with jeans or a tribal print romper, spice them up with a drawstring bucket bag and a boho-inspired hat like Annabelle did.
