It’s not unusual for fashion obsessives to spend thousands of dollars on the next It bag, but the latest must-own style is actually much more budget-friendly. You may have spotted simple net bags on Instagram, arranged artfully with fruit or a chic pair of sunglasses. Well, good news: I snapped up this style myself for all of $9 on Amazon, and the compliments have been rolling in.
Not only does the simple market tote make it easy to carry around my daily necessities (photogenic fruit included, of course), but it’s also easy to stow away for later. It’s perfect for the beach—no sand stuck in the bottom—but is chic enough to bring to the office. And while you may feel more protective over an expensive leather bag, it’s guaranteed this style can handle whatever your daily activities may be. Bottom line: This is the best $9 I’ve spent this year.
Read on to see a few trendsetters using the bag; then shop the style for yourself!
