It’s that time of year again. The nights are getting longer, the weather’s getting warmer, and it’s time to switch out your purse for a straw bag. Whether you’re going for a tropical vacation vibe, a French girl chic moment, or something a little preppier, we have the straw bags for you.
Let’s start with the classics. Tory Burch’s straw bag is a tote you’ll be able to wear for years, whether it’s poolside or just at the farmer’s market. J.Crew’s market tote will be just as stylish five years from now. Mango’s extra-large jute bag is a vacation bag if I’ve ever seen one. Dragon Diffusion’s woven bag is an absolute showstopper, and the extra structured bag feels different from the slouchy straw varieties.
Looking for something with some extra special details? This mini fringe clutch is super fun, and the tote version with fringe and beading isn’t your average tote bag. This cane and rattan purse feels tropical, but refined.
The natural texture of straw and rattan doesn’t mean you have to leave it to the beach. You can totally dress it up in a super chic, minimalist way that feels fancy. This Vasic bucket bag is streamlined and pretty, with the fresh white panels for some contrast. This Nannacay tote feels geometric and modern. Anthropologie’s woven clutch will add some serious style to your next date night outfit.
You can even add some color, whether you go big with a hot pink and white fringed bag from Frances Valentine or a little more grounded with a black and tan J.Crew combo. This black, white, and tan striped bag from Bloomingdale’s is a more minimalist take on it. Finally, because you know I can’t resist a monogram, Williams Sonoma’s hand-painted monogram straw tote is the perfect personalized purse.
