Best Bucket Bags To Rock This Summer (PHOTOS)

Aside from beach totes, bucket bags are the essential accessory for summer.

Why's that? Two things: they look chic on all kinds of outfits (you get extra glamour points when you drape one over your maxi dress or your summer shorts) and they hold all the warm weather essentials you need: sunnies, wallet, sunblock, keys and a good book.

Not only do they come in different sizes but they come in a variety of fabrics and leathers. You can't go wrong with an ikat-print bucket when you're rocking out at a festival or wearing your new neon bucket bag to work.

Best of all? They come at all price-points, whether you want something on the cheap side for less than $30 or are willing to shell out the big bucks for a designer piece.

Look no further for the "it" accessory of the summer with our top 20 bucket bag picks:
