Major inspo this way.

The fashion set has, understandably, gone mad for basket bags. Not only is the soft coloring and texture of the natural fiber the perfect compliment to a summer palette, but the woven style allows for a lot of creativity. Whether you want a straw shopper or a raffia rucksack, a jute tote or a wicker basket, you can find them in loads of styles from simple, braided strands in circles and squares to designs embellished with everything from intricate embroidery (hello, slogan bags) to colorful pops of pompoms and tassels

Because of the huge variety of options available, this breezy bag isn’t limited to picnics and the beach, either. We’ve seen straw clutches and handbags all over the city, too, paired with gingham blouses in contemporary cuts and distressed denim to add a bit of edge. A wrap-around espadrille sandal is this carry-on’s best friend – or try coordinating yours with a statement slide-on if you're looking for a fitting flat. 

Its versatility might make it intimidating, so if you’re hesitant to invest because you aren’t sure how to style a straw bag, we’ve rounded up a selection of looks from our favorite bloggers that feature some woven arm candy to inspire your summer style. 

From flowery dresses and jumpsuits to snapper pants and mini skirts, here’s how the fashion set is styling the straw bag this summer. Scroll down to stock up on our selection of basket bags for every occasion:
