Summer ’18 Trend Watch : Straw Handbags

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.” ~ Maya Angelou

One trend that I have been obsessing over lately is the straw bag. You have probably seen this trend on your IG feed or through Pinterest. At first sight, I didn’t think I would like this trend. The idea of straw itself made me itch lolz. But this once frumpy and overlooked handbag has been upgraded and I don’t hate it! Whether you are in need of a crossbody or an evening bag, there are stylish straw options. Check out my top suggestions below!

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1531890389606?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’); //shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/#/?options=%7B%22widgetId%22%3A%225b4ed19586f6b095093dd174%22%2C%22version%22%3A1%2C%22pid%22%3A%22uid3376-35726124-4%22%2C%22size%22%3A200%2C%22columns%22%3A3%2C%22rows%22%3A5%2C%22url%22%3A%22https%3A%2F%2Fapi.shopstyle.com%2Fapi%2Fv2%22%2C%22iframeHeight%22%3A1135%2C%22iframeWidth%22%3A705%7D
I did a bit of searching and these are the ones that stood out to me the most. I like trying trends that often have something unique about them. It can be something as simple as the color or buttons that makes it stand out to me. I loved the black straw caged bag from Anthropologie, it is a dupe for the Cult Gaia bag. I love seeing it in this black and the handles are unique. This perfect for an evening out for dinner. Imagine a nice flowy maxi dress, sandals, some hoops and this bag – so fab! 
This one from Eudon Choi is such a gorgeous choice! It is a little higher on the price tier but worth it in my opinion! This is a gorgeous option to take to the office. The fabric adds a sophisticated touch to this handbag as well as the structure. The fabric conveniently ties at the top to secure your belongings. Smart choice for anyone who is a minimalist or lover of a classic aesthetic. 
Perhaps you are looking for a chic carryall for your daily essentials? This embroidered tote by Rebecca Minkoff is the one! I love that it is black first of all because most straw totes are tan. It definitely helps to make all of the accents really pop. I love the option to carry it two ways, either in hand or over the shoulder. Plus the round handle is a nice touch! I have totally been digging handbags with geometric handles lately. I need to get my hands on at least one bag lolz. 
Which handbag do you like the most or do you not like this trend at all? Sound off in the comments to let me know your thoughts! 
As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J
