Few accessories can channel a whole mood like a straw handbag. Effortlessly relaxed and eternally chic, the best straw handbags and beach bags are the sort of pieces that take you from zero to Jane Birkin in under 60 seconds. From classic raffia totes to fisherman-inspired woven shoulder bags, they’re practical enough to be tossed onto a pile of sand along with your beach towels and sunscreen, but stylish enough to accompany you to a summer brunch or picnic.
If you’re looking for a functional beach bag, size matters. A tote big enough to stash a towel, sunscreen, and water bottle, with handles long enough to carry on your shoulder, will fit the bill. If you’d like a straw handbag with enough polish to take to that aforementioned summer brunch, look for elevated details; perhaps a compact, ribbon-adorned basket bag, or a shoulder bag with a luxe chain strap.
Lest you believe all straw bags look the same, the options featured ahead abound with special details. You’ll find gorgeous braiding, leather-wrapped handles, and festive tassels that will make you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation, even if you’re just headed to the farmer’s market. There are even straw totes that can double as home decor; I’ve included one that I personally use to stash throw blankets and magazines.
The best straw handbags and beach bags are some of the easiest, chicest, and most functional ways to revamp your summer wardrobe. Scroll on to shop some of the best Amazon Fashion has to offer.
