Straw Bags Are Back For Spring. Here Are Our Favorites

Straw bags are a spring and summer style staple. Ditch that dark handbag! Straw bags are way more fitting for the warmer weather and will help your outfit to look more seasonally appropriate.

Basket weaving has been going on for ages. And it’s easy to see why. It makes these beautiful baskets that are durable and very practical. But it wasn’t really until Jane Birkin made these a style essential that they became a spring and summer fashion staple. So if you want the French girl chic look, you’re going to want to have at least one style in your closet. (Fair warning, after getting one your normal handbag may not see much more use until fall arrives.)

Here are all the bags that will serve you now and in years to come!

french straw market basket leather handles

French Straw Market Bag

The French straw market bag has its name for a reason. You will see women all over France wearing these in the spring and summer to pick up their groceries when they go to the market. But as a bonus, they make a cute accessory. A bag that’s fashionable and that will get the grocery shopping done, where do I sign up?

Plus, the leather handles on this make it much sturdier so it will be better suited to holding all the things women carry around.

If the French market bag just didn’t have enough flair for you, this bag is sure to do the trick. The bag is unique, but would still work with most of your wardrobe. It’s a high-quality bag from Aranaz, which is a brand that’s super committed to craftsmanship. And on a bag like this where there are beads, you definitely want to avoid cheap versions where those things will quickly fall off.

Rattan Clutch with Chain Strap

Another really stylish way to hop on the straw bag trend is to pick up a rattan clutch. I love this one because it’s classic with a few leather touches. It also comes with a chain that you could attach if you’re forgetful like me or if having a strap on your purse makes things easier. You can also switch out the chain for a leather strap like this one.

Cream Pot De Miel Bag

This bag is probably one of my favorites on this list. It’s easy to wear with lots of different things, but the shape is a nice twist on the typical straw bag.
