13 Straw Handbags That Will Instantly Transport You To The Beach
While you might be a big believer in seasonless style, wearing sundresses straight through Fall and knit sweaters well into the Summer months, there is one bag style that's more warm-weather friendly than most. When you look at a straw handbag, it instantly transports you to some far away beach in your mind. Whether the south of France, Amalfi coast, or a quick jaunt to the beaches of the Hamptons, a natural woven handbag is just the thing to make any outfit feel like summer.
From grosgrain trimmed to gingham lined, it’s a timeless classic — but this season ushers in a modern and structured twist on your favorite leather and suede silhouettes. This summer, opt for a slightly more malleable straw, or even a structured wicker or raffia style, but make sure to have a perfect garden-ready tote on hand as the temperature begins to rise.
