But how about you switch things up a bit this summer with these quirky high-street and designer nautical handbags?
Warning: Plenty of lust-worthy bags and debatable sea puns ahead.
Charlotte Olympia anchor bag
It's time to set sail for faraway shores with Charlotte Olympia's Cast Away clutch bag.
It has a handy hula handle so it's unlikely to go overboard, and it's got a gold anchor detail with little gems. In other words, it's perfect.
Charlotte Olympia porthole clutch bag
What can we say? Charlotte Olympia knows her aquatic stuff. Dive right into this season's perspex trend with Charlotte Olympia's awesome Life Aquatic clutch bag.
If you're not sure what to carry in it, see our guide for what to carry in a clear clutch bag. In this case, we recommend a toy mermaid or crab.
Zara striped minaudière
If all else fails, a classic striped clutch bag will never go out of style. To be worn with a classic little white dress for major sailor chic props.
Edie Parker crab clutch bag
Forget day of the week slogan clutch bags, push the boat out with Edie Parker's nautical handbags instead.
Whether you star sign is cancer or you just love anything sea related, Edie Parker's Jean Crab clutch is bound to float your boat (working our way through all sea puns here, sorry).
Olympia Le-Tan Little Sailors clutch bag
Ahoy there sailor! If this hand-embroidered clutch bag doesn't make you want to get on board with the nautical trend, we don't know what will.
