4 Fab Straw Bags for Spring/Summer

May 15, 2018

This spring/summer presents the perfect opportunity to lighten up our wardrobes. White jeans take the place of black, flowy blouses replace knit pullovers and, in place of a structured leather handbag: a straw tote. From classic beach styles to modern clutches, the straw-bag trend has taken over handbag accessory lines this season. Whether you’re wishing to bring an unexpected touch to your LBD for a night on the town or you’re heading out for a day of errands, there’s is a straw bag to fit any occasion. Below, four of our favourites. —Mackenzie Shand

straw bag

beach tote. This Mud Pie model ($45) boasts beachy embroidery, blue stripes and pom-poms, plus an inner pouch pocket, interior lining, a magnetic snap closure and plenty of room for all your stuff.

straw bag

monogram model. This playful Anthropologie tote ($88) features a pink and red monogram up front and a round, lightweight structure. Leave the colourful scarf tied to the side, tie it around your neck or put in your hair for the quintessential summer look (no, it’s not too early!).

straw bag

basket bag. A tisket, a tasket. While you may not have thought a handbag reminiscent of a classic picnic basket would be a sartorial slam dunk, this one by Topshop ($52) is set to defy the odds.

straw bag

crabby cute. Bring a little sealife to your summer style with this pinch-worthy embroidered mini ($45). Eye-catching and effortless, it’ll take you from the farm market to date night in one fell swoop.
