The Net Bag Is The Hottest Fashion Trend Right Now

We pick out these 6 net bags you'll love to be seen rocking this season

While the idea of IT bags may conjure an image of luxurious leather and robust metalware, this season’s version is nothing close to that. The unassuming net bag may be predominantly made of just a couple of strings and knots, but that doesn’t mean it is inferior to the former.

American singer-songwriter Solange Knowles channelled a bad girl vibe in an all-black ensemble at this year’s Met Gala, but even so, we couldn’t take our eyes off her unique arm candy – a custom Brother Vellies fishnet bag made with crystals from Swarovski.

With a plethora of fashion brands putting out their take on the humble accessory, we picked out six net bags that you should be seen rocking this season. P.s. the price of #6 will shock you.

#1: Jacquemus camel leather and macramé shoulder bag, $876.33 (S$1,170), net-a-porter.com
Who doesn’t love versatile items? The outer black macramé net on this bucket bag can be removed, which makes it perfect for both days and nights out. #2: Maison Margiela lambskin and nylon net bag, $1,878, farfetch.com
With its brilliant shade of yellow and polka dot pattern, this bag is a perfect summary of the hottest fashion trends of the season. #3: Faux leather tote bag, $89.90, Mango
If you’re not comfortable with the idea that the net bag exposes your belongings to the public eye, you’ll love the privacy that comes with this tote bag that comes with an inner compartment. #4: Polyester, cotton and metallic yarn net bag, $99.90, Mango
We’re loving the effortlessly chic look that this slouchy bag gives off. Contain your valuables in the drawstring pouch while the rest can be shown off.   #5: Catalina D'Anglade metal mesh bag, $369, farfetch.com
If you desire a little more structure to your net bag, this bucket bag will do the job for you. Even better, it is collapsible and can be flattened when not in use, making it the perfect stylish travel-friendly accessory. #6: Honana cotton mesh bag, $6.91, lazada.sg
And if you simply can’t justify spending the aforementioned amounts of money a humble piece of string, you can always opt for this reusable grocery bag that is also great for beach days or day-to-day life in general. It comes in nine different colours, is lightweight and foldable, and certainly doesn’t look any less chic than its sisters featured in this post.   Like this?
