You tried the minimalist handbag approach.

And it worked...until you stopped cleaning out your receipts and your hands froze because you constantly forgot to wear gloves while toting that clutch around. So now you're back to the slouchy oversized bag. But what woman wants to carry 10 extra pounds after the holidays?

What's a gal to do? Meet the bucket bag.

Smaller than your average tote, but swingy like a cross-body bag (there's nothing we love more than a cross-body strap), a bucket bag is the best of both worlds.

Popping back on the scene last fall, the bucket bags of the '70s feel new again--and everyone from Gisele to your trendy neighbor seems to be carrying them. Best of all, the style isn't going anywhere. See our 2014 Pump-Up Guide for confirmation that bucket bags will still be très chic come this fall.
