Why Straw Bags are Slowly Taking Over Your Instagram

Who would have ever guessed that the next It bag would be sitting so neatly in your closet, right beside your brighter-than-bright collection of bikinis and stack of bronze-goddess tanning creams? Yes, those simple straw bags once used to tote around your summer essentials have actually become the summer essential. The style rule to follow: just slip one onto your arm and let it swing. The Spring 2017 straw styles by Kayu, Edie Parker, Mark Cross, and Munn see the classic accessory take a colorful turn in candy shades primed for summer days and nights. Fendi revived its classic Baguette bag in raffia; the beachy texture serving to relax high-octane gowns and elevated kaftans.

It’s definitely time to swap your handy leather carryall for some raffia and wicker, just like every It girl from Dubai to LA. From neon pom poms to basket numbers, here is how to rock one of these simple grab-and-go pieces according to Instagram.
