A straw bag has not historically been one of my summer “must haves.”
Generally, when you think of a structured straw bag you generally picture a woman with a perfectly coiffed blonde bob, wearing LILLY PULITZER, strolling the shops in Palm Beach.
Not exactly my fashion wheelhouse… but this modern straw bag look is!
Apparently, when styled with the right outfit a straw bag can look modern — and dare I say it, cool!? LUCY WILLIAMS proves to us all that neutral basics can give a straw bag that contemporary edge that it requires to get upgraded on my style list.
A BLACK BUTTON-DOWN, RAW HEM STRAIGHT LEG JEANS and NATURAL LEATHER SANDALS keep the outfit minimal and sharp, just the way I like it! Her accessories are kept to a bare minimum so that the focus of the outfit becomes the straw bag itself.
While Lucy’s straw bag is a vintage find, I’ve linked to a number of bags below that can be scored from some of your favorite retailers. The best part? Straw bags are some of the most affordable handbag options out there and can clearly outlast most trend driven items in your closet.
Moral of my story: don’t store that straw bag away for your next vacation or stroll in Palm Beach. Take that baby out for a spin this summer!
