If there's one bag we're lusting after this summer, it's the humble straw bag. No longer reserved for the beach, they're fast-becoming a wardrobe staple, looking just as at home in the city as they are on the sand. From oversized totes to cross-body essentials, there's an array of takes on the trend for every occasion.
Mini break packing can be a tricky affair, but the straw bag might just be the perfect handbag solution. Come day time, opt for your favourite trainers and loose-fit jeans, and when the evening sets in, switch to a maxi dress and lace-up espadrilles for easy boho style.
Miniature straw styles are the perfect finishing touch to date night outfits. Pair with everything from floral dresses to jeans and courts. Take your look even further with nods to the print trend and add statement blouses under denim jackets.
Back to work
Refresh last season's tote with a large straw bag and team with new season tailoring, think neutral palettes and wide-leg trousers. For a more relaxed finish, pair blazers with denim and mules for a modern take on 9-5 dressing.
