5 Beach Bags We Love: Friday Finds

Beach bags are a "must" buy.

We’re betting you’re going to be poolside a lot this weekend (and for the weeks to come), so we’ve rounded up 5 cute beach bags that can handle the elements.

Beach bags, picnic worthy

1. Vintage Roomy Beach Bag

We’re starting off this list with a beach bag that can handle it all. It’s roomy and has a picnic basket-like form so it’s perfect for holding sunscreen, picnic food, and a towel. We also love its embroidered detail. Sold on Ebay for $9.99.

Beach bags, classy

2. Isle of Capri Tote

This cute tote looks like the quintessential modern bag. It’s made of paper straw and provides a lot of space. It’s the perfect companion for any beach weddings you may have on your calendar this summer. Also: We really love its pink handles. Priced at $48 from Free People.

Beach bags, retro

3. Vintage Woven Rattan Bag

We love beach bags with character and this one has character coming out the wazoo. It’s vintage from the ’80s, and is embellished with all sorts of beautiful colors. Priced at $14.91 from the Etsy store VintageSquirrels.

Beach bags, waist

4. Rachel Comey Woven Raffia Waist Pack

Fanny packs — excuse us, waist packs — are kinda in this year. So, if you’re going to embrace this trend, we think you should invest in a really nice bag. This woven raffia waist pack is priced at $218 and from Anthropologie. It’s the perfect size if you pack light when going to the beach or pool. Also: If you plan on walking around a lot, this bag is super easy to travel with.

Beach bags, clutch

5. Woven Rattan Clutch

And we had to include this bag because it’s just so fun. Also: it’s a clutch. So, it can travel from beachside to barside easily. It features a zip top, so all your necessities won’t fall out. This tiny beach bag is from the 1980s and sold by the Etsy shop BlueRoseRetro. Priced at $19.
