Add to Basket: Summer's Staple Bag
Whether you’re jetting off on holiday or enjoying the sun from home, do it with a basket bag in hand.Read more
Once upon a time, the basket bag was synonymous with a day lounging on the beach. But over the last couple of years, the best basket bags have made the jump from holiday essential to THE bag to carry, wherever you go. That’s not to say a classic wicker doesn’t belong on the beach too, but with their versatile practicality and ability to hide and hold a multitude of sins while still managing to look good (especially with your summer dresses), basket bags can easily compliment your every outfit need. So whether you’re exploring the city or laying out on a beach lounger soaking up the sun, let Liberty share the very best basket bags for every occasion.
The Best Beach Basket Bag, Liberty, £245
No beach day is complete without a basket bag. Roomy and durable, a beach basket will hold all your essentials, from an oversized towel to your trusty SPF collection. And the Liberty Basket Bag Collection is inarguably the best. These summery bags are made from woven palm leaves in our signature tan colour. To add an extra Liberty touch, we’ve engineered a drawstring dust bag made from our iconic Tana Lawn cotton in three classic Liberty prints to protect your beach belongings inside.
The Best Work Basket Bag, Marni, £790
If you’ve not considered a basket bag for your workwear wardrobe, now’s the time.

Crafted from smooth leather and woven raffia panels in a practical bucket silhouette, this basket bag is a great option for a day in the office.
The Best Party Basket Bag, LOEWE x Paula's Ibiza, £1,150.00
Practicality may be the last thing on your mind ahead of a night out, a go-to party bag should be small, chic and easy.
