If you are like me, you’ve noticed a major emphasis on bamboo in all kinds of accessories both to wear and in home decor. Bamboo has a way of evoking light, bright sun filled days in the warmer seasons in a fashion forward way.

Personally, I love the exotic feel of the material.  It instantly makes me think of far away places and another time.  Bamboo accents help an outfit or space feel updated yet has an heirloom touch as well.

You’ve seen me use bamboo in several tablesettings here and here.  Whether it’s dinnerware or flatware, it adds a great texture and dimension to your table.

As far as style pieces, I’ve had gold bamboo bangle similar to this one for years and everyone comments on it.  I’ve been eyeing this silver version and these earrings were on my Mother’s Day Gift Guide.  Don’t forget you can still buy online and pick up in store at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus for your mom on Sunday!  The bamboo handle bag shown above is one of my favorite summer bags.  It’s light weight and the white leather is so high quality.  It has really stood the test of time!

Here are my current favorite bags, jewelry, shoes as well as home décor items. These are bamboo accessories you will not only swoon over but want to add to your home and wardrobe.

Do you love Bamboo, too?  What other trends are  you seeing for fashion and home?

    I remember this trend from….maybe the 60’s or 70’s? I love it! It does create a tropical feel and I love seeing it being used again in purses. Bamboo is such a versatile material, too. It doesn’t always have to look like a stalk of bamboo. They use it for purses, wall-coverings, towels and so much more. I love your choices and that blue romper is darling!
