True, high fashion bags tend to come with more structure, a more sophisticated finish, and high-end touches (not to mention the label itself, which is partly what you’re paying for). On the other hand, straw is straw. You’ll find a fab collection at one of our favorite shops. Are you willing to spend hundreds of dollars more on a straw bag that you could conceivably feed to a goat? We’re not so sure. Designer models have a higher level of designer interest, but whether you’re willing to pay top dollar for visual interest alone is up to you. Either way, a straw carryall is the only bag you’ll need this season. Straw bucket bags and clutches are fresh looks for this season. We are obsessed with Nannacays straw bag with the colored pom poms. Straw bags are super wearable and can be worn with summer outfits, party and beach attire. The best is you can mix them up with different looks. For a more upscale look (won’t break the bank) are the Cult Gaia Bags. Be sure to check out Ellen & James straw bags.
