From our friends at The Find:
Aside from a stand-out swimsuit, a killer pair of shades, and an arsenal of self-tanning essentials, a straw handbag is one of the biggest style staples of the season! There’s something about straw that just screams summer, and lately, the reworked modern styles manage to look surprisingly upscale while still giving off that carefree, beachy vibe that keeps the style grounded and true to its roots! A straw tote is always a good classic to fall back on, though it’s certainly been done before, and last summer amped-up straw clutches took us by surprise, making fashionistas think twice about their usual going-out accessory! This summer it’s all about straw satchel — a carry-all that’s a little fancier than your typical beach tote, yet still casual enough to take it with you to work, dinner, or even just while you’re running errands. Bright colors from Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade’s neon accents give the neutral-based straw a little pizzazz, while color-blocking courtesy of Rebecca Minkoff gives the look an added on-trend edge that’s tough to pass up this season! If you find it hard to justify splurging on a bag made from straw, go recession-chic with a stylish-yet-affordable satchel from Kohl’s, or make it more worth your while with this rich leather and straw Vince Camuto handbag!
