The Best Woven Bags of Summer 2018

Friday, July 20, 2018

The woven straw bag has now become the most coveted bag this season -- the versatile, natural hue bag is making statements from the runway to street style and even regular day wear. 


The straw bag dates back to 70s where the actress, model, and musician Jane Birkin made the bag popular and was often seen with a version almost everywhere. If the name Birkin sounds just a tab familiar that's because the highly sought after Hermes Birkin bag was named after the actress because of her popularity.

Jane Birkin and her Straw Bag

This season, every "It" girl and fashion enthusiasts have their hands on a variation of the bag and we've found the best ones we love and wouldn't mind standing in line for -- or waiting painstakingly online for "regular shipping".


The Bucket Shape



If you are planning on staying true to trend and getting one as close to the original Jane Birkin straw bag, this is the perfect one for you. This is great for carrying around  a number of things as the inside is pretty deep, though not physically appealing



The Cone Shape


Yup! a bag this shape really does exist! I was as surprised as you all were when I saw it on Pinterest. This irregular cone-shaped bag is available through Catzorange at Net-a-Porter. Not only does the shape made it interesting but also the color black.



The Satchel Shape



Nothing much to see here! This is deemed as a regular shaped bag, but! It stands out because of the colored handles and the fact that you carry it in your hands or even as a clutch as opposed to wearing it on your shoulders.



The Round Shape

This is our favorite shape and the most popular! We love this shape because it's visually appealing, it's small and it's large enough to hold essential items. I like this in a darker and more natural hue and I've come across some with tassels here in Jamaica from local brands like Flowerchild 1999 by Kasian Bourke. If you want to be on trend and not sure which shape to get, start with this one and work your way up to the others.



The Square Shape



This is another popular and easily accessible shape this season and can be found on popular sites like Net-a-porter and even Target (tarjay) for different price points. This one was low-key inspired by a picnic basket because of the shape and practicality.
