Best Straw Bags and Totes to Add To Your Collection

by | Style

Now that Spring is officially here and Summer is quickly approaching, I have been gathering a list of the best straw bags and totes to add to your collection. We have been seeing this trend of wicker and rattan accessories emerging for a few years now, and I think it is here to stay! Keep reading to see why you need one and a list of some of my current favorites.

Why You Should Own a Straw Bag

Straw bags come in a wide variety of styles from beach bags to clutches.  You can carry this trend that never goes out of style with you wherever you find yourself this Spring or Summer. Take a large straw tote, for example. Bring it with you for a day at the pool, the Farmer’s Market, or use it as a laptop bag to the office or coffee shop.  A basket bag would be the perfect accessory dressed up for date night or dressed down in a casual outfit for daytime. The tones of the natural fibers allow them to be paired with any color outfit, making them the perfect neutral accessory for Spring and Summer.

Best Places to Shop

I am loving Pamela Munson! This brand is devoted to straw accessories and offers an amazing collection of products. Her natural fiber bags have the sweetest feminine details such as hand stitching, pearls, and beautiful ribbon accessories. I personally own a few of her bags like this one Pamela sent me.  Her signature basket bag with grosgrain and eyelet handles.  I’ve been eyeing this darling floral clutch for my collection.  I have had this woven clutch with pearl clasp (currently sold out) for several years and it still looks brand new.  She makes such high quality bags.

If you like to personalize your bag with a monogram, Mark and Graham is the place to go. They have a variety of fun options that are under $150.   There are so many to choose from!

J. Crew has great options currently for straw and rattan bags from classics to fun details. So many of these woven pieces could be taken anywhere. This Jolene rattan-inspired bag would be perfect as a day bag and then on another day to the beach!

Some other places I’m loving to shop for straw bags these days are Tuckernuck, Shopbop and Nordstrom!

Beautiful Straw Bags Styles to Add to Your Collection

Pamela Munson Avis handbag, Raffia Handbag, Spring Straw Bags

 

1. I am in love with Pamela Munson’s new collection.  I truly can’t decide between the one above or this tote version.  It checks all the Spring Handbag boxes for me: Feminine, Classic, Bamboo Handle, and Straw.  Truly no one does this style bag better than Pamela and her Spring Collection is amazing.

2. How beautiful is this mix of cane and leather? I love this combination. This tote is small enough to be an everyday bag but big enough to take to hold all of your things!

Straw Clutch, Beach Bag, Staw bag

 

3. The new version of the straw clutch I’ve carried for years.  It’s great styled for a date night as well as a vacation!

French Market Tote, French Basket Tote, Woven Beach Tote

 

4.  I’m not sure there is anything more chic and understated than a French Market Tote.  Tuckernuck has this one for only $55!  You can find personalized basket totes here.

Palermo Straw Beach Tote

5. Did you know you can even personalize your straw bags? You can add your initials to this must have new arrival bag from Mark and Graham.

Pamela Munson Isla Bahia Tote, woven beach bag6. I love this woven bag with navy fringe ribbon trim from Pamela Munson. Such a fun and feminine twist on a straw bag!  I have it with neutral handles and love carrying it as a day bag and at the beach!
