One scroll through your Instagram feed and you’ll undoubtedly find fashion elite, influencers and celebrities rocking one particular summer trend—the straw purse. Also known as “basket bags,” these of-the-moment carryalls typically made of wicker, rattan or straw are beloved for their convenience and their versatility, and they pull an outfit together be it at a casual picnic or an upscale summer wedding.
Whether a tote or crossbody, saddle bag or a satchel, they also are an obvious choice for a day at the beach or add a punch of personality to jeans or denim cut-offs. Basket bags are also spacious, carrying the wearer’s personal belongings with ease.
Oh, and as your Instagram feed will also tell you, straw purses make for some seriously cute photo opps, which is always a bonus.
Come check out Garmany’s womenswear department to see some of these stylish basket bags in person from brands like Cult Gaia, Rebecca Minkoff and more.
