How did this £5 bag become the latest must-have accessory this summer

A simple fruit and vegetable bag everyone is talking about.

Summer is just around the corner, which means fashion gets light and airy, and so do the accessories. But how did a simple fruit and vegetable bag became the latest it-bag, you wonder? To be fair, it’s not even a proper handbag, yet this cute cotton net bag is all over the social media.

Affordable and versatile?

Simple and breathable, a mesh bag is an affordable and eco-friendly alternative to the popular status bags, as well as other summer handbags (yes, straw bag, we are thinking of you!) you have most likely seen on your feed.

With a cost less than a £10, this can make a fashionable statement that is subtle and cool at the same time. Whether it’s weekend or vacation style, wear your net cotton bag with summer wardrobe-essentials. This way you can archive the easygoing vibe which suits this little gem flawlessly. Pair it with denim, white tee or strapless top and comfy sandals

The good news it’s reusable (great substitute for disposable plastic shopping bags) so you can use it as a grocery bag during the winter, especially if you prefer more sturdy or spacious bags. Sounds like a win-win!
