'Holiday, celebrate!'

Like Madonna sang back in the Eighties, the holidays are indeed a time to celebrate, and what better way to do it than with a new handbag?

If it's a summer holiday you're jetting off on, it'll probably be to a warmer clime – hot, near water – which means a beach bag is what to splash out on (arf).

The high street is never in short supply, but we're picky with our beach accessories. Because we've spent an age choosing our bikini, so long selecting our sarong, all week sourcing our flip-flops, all day appling our sun tan lotion, and all morning arranging our hair 'just so' for its seaside debut, that we're not going to let the whole look down by carrying some two-bit plastic holdall we panic-bought from the airport...

Non! We're not.

We want show-stopping, trend-setting, kudos-deserving beach bags... Top of our list this season include Anya Hindmarch's Wink Basket Tote (with leather trim handle), Sensi Studio's Candy-Stripe Woven option and Muzungu Sisters' Mirror-Embroidered Tote – which is basically worth booking a holiday for.

Shop these and others from our Beach Bag edit in the gallery below...
