There's no denying that beach bags are the ultimate summer accessory. Not only are they incredibly practical, with the capacity to hold all your life's possessions, but they're also extremely chic, serving as the perfect accessory for every summer rendezvous.

Beach bags come in all shapes and sizes, but typically feature woven, straw, or canvas materials. This year's standouts include Loewe's classic Raffia bag, £450 worn by influencers everywhere, as well as Sézane's natural raffia, £220 that Sienna Miller has been wearing on repeat. Other popular beach bags include Ganni's leopard print tote, £145 - leopard print is the pattern of the summer, after all - which also doubles as a great day-to-day carry-all if you're looking for something slightly more versatile.

It should come as no surprise that your favourite, tried and true high street brands such as Zara, Mango and M&S are stocking beach bags aplenty, including high-end inspired bags - take H&M's £9.99 Straw Shoulder Bag, for example, which is a dead-ringer for Prada's iconic tote.
