Best Bags For Summer: Woven, Straw, and Wicker

4 June

There is something so seasonably right about a new woven bag come summer. Over the years they have become a prominent warm-weather essential, lending a far-flung holiday vibe to any outfit. Currently obsessed with this one by Alienina… always sold by a really cool, thick knit job. Can’t wait to bring this up to Tahoe with us in a couple of weeks for afternoons by the lake!

There’s something about throwing a straw/woven/wicker number over your shoulder that instantly makes you feel like you’re out of office should be on, even when you’re just running to the grocery store. And call me crazy, but I get a thrill from loading my produce into a chic woven tote. It’s just one of those little luxuries that always does it for me– saving the planet while doing so.

Since they’ve become such a beloved staple–they are everywhere, in many shapes, colors, and sizes. From the Parisienne inspired market totes of the world to the higher end woven clutches adorned with something spot on, like a bamboo handle… the options are endless.

Whether it’s adding a unique texture to the bare basics, or grounding a more elevated look, they tend to play a key role in your summer outfit in the best way. I’ve rounded up all of my top picks from around the web… which is your favorite?
