If there’s one go-to winter accessory we CANNOT live without, it’s the bucket bag. I mean, we peeped Alexander Wang’s studded leather beauty (also known as the Diego *fans self*) more than two years ago, and we’ve been smitten ever since. The bucket bag is durable and large enough for everyday use but can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Lucky for us, the crossbody-that-also-doubles-as-a-handbag is STILL in style, so we thought we’d pick our fave looks from all around the blogosphere to (hopefully!) inspire y’all to cop one of your own.

Valentine Vanesse of Hello It’s Valentine
Blog: Twitter: @ValentineHello.
Paris-based blogger Valentine is the definition of chic. She’s constantly impressing us with her cool and comfortable layered ensembles, like the one we see here! She wore a gray United Colors of Benetton crew neck sweater, Baruckello Peter Pan collar shirt, red Zara toggle coat, and burgundy New Look jeans. She accessorized with a killer hat, matching suede booties, and the oh-so-coveted Alexander Wang Diego bag.

Brittany Burnett of Waltz In Black
Even though Brittany is from California, we can tell she’s totally a NYC girl at heart. Her mostly-black ensembles (hence the name of her blog) always have touch of edginess to them, which we LOVE. Her leopard Alexander Wang bucket bag looked perfect paired with her vintage Motorhead tee, black cut-off shorts, and lace-up UNIF platforms. For her other accessories, she went with a simple black beanie, Cheap Monday choker, and studded leather cuff.

Jessica Virgin of VintageVirgin
We’ve been a fan of Jessica’s for awhile now, and we’re sure you can see why! Her effortlessly-cool vintage-meets-2012 style is to DIE for, and we especially love this ’70s-inspired look. She’s wearing a vintage dip-dye crochet top with black knee-high socks and vintage Frye boots. To take her entire ensemble to the next level, she added a Southwestern buckle belt, tons of layered necklaces, a statement-making hat, and—of course—a fringe bucket bag. PERF!
