There’s a lot to love about spring and summer fashion. Short hemlines, gauzy fabrics, and vibrant hues all have a place on that list, but none rank higher than summer accessories. A platform sandal or colorful beaded choker? Be still my beating heart. The epitome of warm weather accessories, however, is the straw bag. Casual yet statement-making, the straw bag holds a certain magic—almost as if the essence of vacation was captured and turned into a purse. With that kind of style power, a good straw bag deserves a place in everyone’s armoire. Take Jane Birkin’s vintage style as inspiration for living a 24/7 straw bag life. The actress styled her Portuguese fish basket with everything: denim, a little white frock, and even wore it with a cocktail dress at the Cannes Film Festival (with a silk scarf ingeniously wrapped around the handle).
Luckily, you’ve got options. Feast your eyes on some of the finest rattan, wicker, and raffia bags, ranging from designer shopping totes to small crossbodies from Amazon. Here, find 31 of the best straw bags for summer 2022.
