If you’re in the market for a new accessory, why not give your bucket bag a break and let us introduce you to the arm candy that’s currently trending on Instagram?
Much like the trusted basket bag we often reach for during the summer, this one is a surefire way to boost your off-duty wardrobe (pair it with floral dresses, white jeans or checked blazers), and it won’t take a whole month’s earnings to get your hands on a version, as some of the chicest iterations start at just £20.
Now, this teeny tiny mesh tote may not seem entirely practical, but we think there’s more than one reason to take the microtrend seriously. Firstly, it’s fun (and who are we to deny ourselves such a thing?). Not only that, but Maria Bernad proved that the ultimate Chivatas bag is incredibly versatile, pairing her cheerful checked option with a beachy white dress and Gucci loafers.
Naturally, the aforementioned Chivatas style is currently sold out, but such stylish backing has led to a surge in demand, and the key styles are set to be restocked soon. So don’t worry—you won’t need to wait long to place your order.
Until then, we’ve turned to a few of our go-to brands to get in on the trend. The good news? There are rroomier versions available should you find it impossible to pack light. Scroll below to shop the best mesh market bags, whatever your budget.
Be sure to snap up Maria’s covetable Chivatas bag when it’s back in stock.
Or why not go for something mid-sized in gingham?
