Few things feel as quintessentially summer as the go-to straw bag. Endlessly classic, straw bags have earned a spot on every summer shopping list—and with good reason. They’re as fit for a day at the park as they are for a trip to the office, and they’re as convenient as they are cute. I mean, at this point, need I really say more?

Straw bags peaked in popularity two summers ago, with basket bags, rattan crossbodies and slouchy woven totes pervading the zeitgeist en masse. As far as summer 2019 was concerned, straw was the new black—and summer 2021 only promises to strengthen the straw bag’s seasonal stranglehold over the sartorial sphere. Classic clutches and picnic baskets are, of course, on offer. But wicker bucket bags and cheeky totes are as abundant as these timeless go-tos.

In other words? Your straw bag options are endless—at least, they feel endless. If you’ve been fighting the cottagecore aesthetic, now’s the time to lean in and get yourself a straw bag. And a wicker bag. And a rattan bag. You need your options!

Ride The Waves Straw Tote

This tote was designed for a collab with The Salty Blonde, so it’s definitely influencer-approved. I love the tonal ombre colorway for extra-beachy vibes—tons of space for your stuff in there, too.

Poppy + Sage Camilla Circle Crossbody

The rattan and straw handbags from Poppy + Sage are ethically handmade in Bali, Indonesia, built to last and just plain cute. The preppy seersucker lining on this circular crossbody bag really sealed the deal for us.

Jodie Raffia Clutch

Looking for something especially glam? The pearl detailing and strap on this top-handle bag look straight out of a mermaid boutique. Pair with a white dress and a good tan on a night out for instant compliments.

Attitudes by Renee Straw Bag with Tassel Detail

This roomy zippered tote gives us major boho beachy vibes thanks to its fun pom poms and tassels. If you need a purse that’s more professional than a la plage, you can easily remove the charm so it’s basically two bags in one.

Social Distancing Straw Tote

OK, this is the most 2021 straw bag ever. Wear this baby while running errands at the farmer’s market so other shoppers know to give you space. Six feet, friends!

Round Rattan Shoulder Bag

This round, hard wicker bag with a leather crossbody strap basically put straw bags on the map back in 2019. And you know what? It’s still good! 10/10, would recommend (if you don’t already have it).

Page Wicker Clutch

Not all straw bags have to be neutral! I love this punchy pop of pinky coral paired with a floral dress for summer brunch or a sunset date night. This one also comes in mint green and two classic wicker hues.

Perry Bombé Mini Straw Bag

Oh, so you want a logo?! Don’t sleep on Tory Burch’s very chic array of straw bags, including the best-selling Perry Bombé. If you use a similar camera bag silhouette in leather for winter, consider this a necessary summer upgrade.

Sigrid Scarf Clutch

I’m a fan of super-structured wicker bags, so this rounded pick by Vera for Anthropologie is high on my list of bags to buy. It also comes in white—and both hues include the pretty scarf!

Meredith Woven Clutch

This little white top-handle bag has a strap made of chunky wooden beads. Is it super practical? I guess not—but I just love the way it looks, don’t you? The drawstring lining also comes in a cute peachy pattern!
