When the boom of the beach bag first started (aka the ones you bought from Bali that looked cute in photos but quickly disintegrated in a few days), we were ecstatic because, erm, finally? The fashion Gods had finally blessed us with a fully functional bag (that can range from designer to cute) and most importantly, doesn’t cost more than your rent.

But as usual, the humble beach bag started getting the “fashion treatment” which is to say they shrank in size to only fit a lipstick or card, or they became stranger looking (no one really carries those animal-shaped ones out…right?).

These 10 are a palate cleanser aka you’re going to be very happy carrying them to the beach – they pack a style punch and also, everything you need for the day itself.
