The woven bag trend is here to stay. I remember when this trend first came out and felt like such a fashion forward move. Now, you see the woven bag trend everywhere and you wonder why we ever lived our lives without them for spring and summer. I remember when I went to Thailand a few years back for my big 3-0 birthday, straw bags, totes and the like were everywhere. I 100% regret not buying something local and authentic. Since then, I’ve added quite a few straw and woven bags to my wardrobe and love them dearly. They’re my go-to bags for the summer season.
Back in 2016, believe it or not, I bought this popular blogger must-have bag that has now gone mainstream. The Cult Gaia Ark clutch. This wooden arc-shaped bag is the perfect finishing touch to any summer outfit. It surprisingly holds quite a bit, phone, wallet, sunglasses and keys, and has held up super well over time. And I truly do wear it quite a bit. It’s my go-to purse for any summertime event. In addition to this Cult Gaia must have, I also love my Hat Attack totes, rattan bags and more. Woven bags for summer are a must and help to make any outfit feel more summer-ready. So today I’m rounding up a few favorite woven bags, from crossbody ones to totes, this will satisfy the blogger in everyone who wants to be on trend this summer.
Best Woven Bags For Summer
Styling a woven bag for summer is so easy. You can truly just pair them with denim cut-offs and white tees for an effortless outfit. Or style them with your fun resort printed maxi dress. They are the perfect accessory to your summer ensembles and help to take you from beach to dinner, or from the office to the grocery store. Swap out those leather totes for something in season like sisal, rattan or straw.
Round Woven Bags
A round bag is another hot trend this season, so adding in the straw and woven element makes this the ultimate bag. I have to be honest, I’m totally contemplating splurging on this one from Clare V. She makes a quality bag that lasts forever. These top handle bags are great for everyday or vacation.
Straw Totes & Satchels
You have to have a straw tote in your life for summer, period! I use my jute shoulder bag tote all the time and it has held up for years. Plus, my Hat Attack top handle straw bag has literally been all over the world and is still in great shape. These bags are great for every day, or even the pool. I prefer my big straw beach tote for the pool, but these can work as double duty if you only want to invest in one.
Statement Woven Clutches & Bags
A statement clutch or bag is always a fun choice for summer. Whether it’s a fun uniquely shaped straw or woven bag, to a colorful clutch to make your little white dress pop! I love a little statement bag for summer and you can never have too many. I mean, they barely take up any space!
Woven Beach Bags
When I head to the pool, I need all the things. A book, a big towel, SPF options and snacks. So a big bag is essential for me. I also love when a beach bag can double as a purse when I’m traveling so I don’t have to pack additional accessories. These would be great for the beach and for dinner with friends.
Rattan seems to have taken over the last few years and I’m obsessed. It’s got such a fun 70s vibe to it and is a nice update to all the straw and wicker. It’s also super popular in furniture lately and being used as caning for headboards and chairs galore. I can’t get enough of it.
