Here are the chicest straw bags to elevate your spring/summer style! There’s something about a straw bag that instantly signals summer, whether it’s a raffia tote, a jute basket, a rattan crossbody bag, or a market basket bag. Being French, wicker, raffia, or straw bags immediately reminds me of the glamorous style of the French Riviera (la Côte d’Azur). And if in the past, the straw bag has been traditionally reserved just for the beach, in recent years, this bag has made a comeback and is now considered a must-have spring/summer accessory. Indeed, thanks to designers like Jacquemus, Chloé, and Loewe, the straw bag goes beyond the summer vacation wardrobe and can be worn everywhere, and as an everyday handbag.
This season, straw bags incorporate details like chain straps and leather accents which make them more polished than the classic floppy beach bag. And if large ones are great as totes to go to the food market, to the beach, or to go shopping, smaller ones make a great everyday handbag for when the weather heats up. This season, my favorite ones are Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza medium leather-trimmed woven raffia tote — Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza raffia totes have become cult pieces thanks to their elegant nonchalance— and Sézane’s Félicie basket. So, without further ado, here are below 8 chic straw bags to elevate your spring/summer style.
