People are being really creative with Ikea bags

Best thing you’ll see all day

It’s safe to say the Ikea bag is having a bit of a moment. First, Balenciaga launched its designer counterpart, a £1,600 that sent the internet into overdrive.

Then Ikea thought it would join in on the bants and came up with this rather brilliant ad.

Now people have seen that there’s clearly a gap in the fashion market for an Ikea collection, and have started creating their own designs, using the blue bag. And we have to say, we’re pretty impressed too.

Our favourite has to be this crop top, expertly layered over a white t-shirt and pyjama-style trousers.

For a more subtle look though, we like these Ikea hem jeans, which have a bit of a Dior vibe to them and we imagine they’d be quite easy to make at home too.

If you’re looking for an accessory though, we imagine the Ikea slides and the baseball cap will be a hit this summer.

We think this thong is perhaps taking it a step too far though...

There are also bum bags, trainers, jackets and more, if you fancy a scroll on Instagram. You’ve got to give it to them though, you would never guess all these came from a 99p bag.

Now, who can see a fashion collection coming to an Ikea store near you?!

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
