Straw, wicker, rattan, basket, raffia, jute—whatever you call it, one thing’s for sure: It’s the summer bag trend that will never die. It’s not often that a specific seasonal look has real longevity, but it’s certainly true when it comes to straw bags. Alexa Chung recently proved just that when she stepped out in New York City this week with a cute basket bag, which is a trend she’s personally been wearing for well over a decade.
There are so many shapes and sizes to choose from that the options can seem overwhelming, but I took great care in rounding up the absolute best versions to consider investing in for summer 2022. Scroll down to shop my favorite wicker and straw bags, inspired by both Alexa Chung and the original aficionado, Jane Birkin.
