Spring/Summer Done Right: The Straw Bag Trend Craze


Ok, so while it's not feeling quite summery out there just yet, spring looks like it has finally arrived in the UK and I can hear the crowd roar! After what seemed like an endless period of grey skies and rain, the sun is shining brightly outside as I type this and that just makes my Monday a little bit better (Oh, sunshine, how we love you...please stick around for more than just a few deals ok?). And with warmer weather, upcoming summer holidays and the beauty that is springtime comes pretty amazing fashion trends too. Today I want to talk about one of these trends that have taken the fashion crowd by a storm (and I must say if you're not giving into the trend, you're doing it wrong). This trend might seem a little farfetched for some, giving we are talking about Beach Straw Bags, worn without a beach in sight. But as you can see I'm all in and this outfit I put together shows just how wearable they actually are for every day in the city too. Keep on reading!

Despite not being incredibly roomy, straw bags have that wow factor which I find particularly needed for summer outfits when we just want to throw on a simple summer dress and be done with it. This bag adds detail, it makes the outfit more interesting and super Insta worthy. Granted, the outfit I have on here is more on the made up side, but that is because I shot it a couple of weeks ago and I was not ready yet to brave the cold and bare it all (hence the heavy-ish knit and pants). But this bag will be the perfect accessory for any spring/summer outfit combinations you make it, no matter what the occasion.


And as I said, whilst you can't fit much in it, your essentials ie. phone, purse, lipstick and compact mirror, do just fine. Another plus is that if you shop on the high street, who thankfully have quickly caught on the trend, they tend to be on the cheaper side considering they're made of straw so you won't be breaking the bank if you decide to try this fashion statement. 

As much as I would love to wear this outfit to the office bag and all, it might not be quite "office appropriate" for my workplace. Which is why I will compensate by wearing it non-stop every upcoming week outings, be it to the park, for shopping and of course on my upcoming summer holidays. Expect to see it loads here too!

  15. This straw bags are everywhere recently! I'm not sure how I feel about them though, I remember seeing them in the 80s but they are definitely not as pretty as the ones now.
