The small version of these was made popular once people began to photograph the circular straw purses that they picked up in Bali, Indonesia which has markets flooded with them. Now a bigger version is being seen all over the beaches of the world. You can easily fit a beach towel, book and your phone inside. Plus, the light color means that the sun won’t be burning a hole in it which will keep any electronics you have from frying.
Clear plastic bags are nothing new. They were popular in the 70s and now they have made a comeback with a vengeance. From beach bags to fanny packs every bag is now showing up in clear plastic. This is a good bag to bring to a hotel pool but it is not one you will want to leave unattended as EVERYONE can see what is inside.
Bags made out of attached wooden beads have been popular, as well as their plastic beaded counterparts. They are a nice addition to a summer dress for a bit of added flair. Bags that come in black and white or plain wood beads seem to be the ‘in’ choice for fashionistas. This is what we call the ‘noisy’ bag, as the beads can rattle together a bit. Expect to make an entrance with one of these.

Remember those old netted bags that people would place their groceries in? Well, those are now a beach bag trend. You can rummage through your parent’s old stuff and probably find one of these bad boys. But, if you want to make it ‘fashion’ you can purchase one in a fun color like pink or blue. Just be careful you don’t put anything small inside that could fall out of one of the many holes.
