The beauty of this bucket bag: It’s roomy enough to carry pretty much everything you’ll need for the day, but it’s far chicer than a basic tote. Done in polished leather, it has a structured silhouette with a drawstring closure to cinch the top and a flat bottom to keep it upright when you set it down. Carry it as a crossbody using the detachable shoulder strap (for an afternoon of museum-hopping) or perch the wrapped handle on your arm (when stepping out to dinner).
Founded in 2015 by Sarah Staudinger (former fashion director at Reformation) and her partner George Augusto, Staud specializes in chic, timeless clothing and accessories at an accessible price point. While best known for its structured bucket bags (a goop-staffer favorite), the label has also made strides into shoe territory, with vintage-inspired wedges, strappy sandals, and goes-with-everything boots. With considered details, Staud pieces are the kind of staples you can build an outfit around.
