Here's an equally cool and chic alternative to the ubiquitous straw bag: Introducing, the net bag. Rooted from the French term filet, the modest mesh carryall was originally used by fishermen. It was in the '60s when it became widely used for its practicality, essentially as a market shopping tote used for fresh produce.
This season, it has easily become every girl's favorite summer tote thanks to its pared-down, effortlessly chic aesthetic. The intertwined bag is also a favored piece for its lightweight nature and compact structure, not to mention the fact that it can fit many items inside. The best part? If the trend ever dies down, you'll still be left with a reusable eco bag!
