Hey everyone! Have you already gotten with the straw bag trend yet? I love straw bags (or basket bags, if you will) because they work for casual, daytime styles but can compliment a nighttime outfit too. I’m all for elevated casual styles as you know!
I’ve been looking all over for the perfect straw bags to add to my growing collection (so far I have four), and I decided to put together a collection for you. I included both larger, beach-appropriate straw bags and smaller bags that are great for a night out. They’re so cute, who cares if people ask if you’re going to a picnic?
I also included various price points so you can stay under budget or splurge on your dream straw bags!
But first, here are my reviews on my personal straw bag collection!
I bought this bag to use for formal daytime events (like a fancy brunch or daytime wedding, perhaps). The black color of the straw and gold hardware make it a little dressier. It fits all my basics, and comes with a detachable chain shoulder strap in addition to the handle strap! What’s not to love? I know this is going to sell out, because all the cute bags at Zara always sell out!
This Brazilian-based brand makes some amazing straw bags, with many of them decorated with pom poms. How cute is that! The Baby Roge is a TINY bag, and I can’t fit much more than my iPhone and keys. My small wallet barely fits, you’ll most likely need a card case instead. It functions more like a clutch, but I do like how the shoulder strap is detachable and you can just use the handle. It’s probably the most adorable bag I own, though.
I searched everywhere for a round circle straw bag and this is one of my favorite finds. It has pretty gold weaving and a colorful tassel which adds some fun. It also has a detachable shoulder strap, and is the perfect size to throw everything in for a day trip! There is a zippered compartment in case you are worried the small magnetic strap closure won’t hold your valuables in. I really love this bag and I plan to carry it around all spring!
These bags are super popular and I can see why. They’re reasonably priced, and the weaving gives it so much character! You can find a variety of different weave patterns and colored cloth linings. They hold my iPhone, wallet, and keys without a problem and the closure is secure. I would note that they are smoked to give them their golden color, so keep in mind it will probably have a strong smell at first. I left my bag out for a few weeks and the smoke smell finally went away.
