This Summer it’s all about weave bags whether its a raffia tote, a woven bucket bag or straw clutch. This must have accessory will instantly add Summer vibes to any outfit. I got my Raffia Bucket Bag from Zara and know it will be the perfect accessory for Mykonos, it’s big enough to store all of your holiday essentials (purse, phone, keys, sunglasses, suncream and lip balm) and can be worn day or night – I can even fit my film camera in it.
The bucket bag has become a staple item for fashionistas with thanks to the popularity of Mansur Gavriel’s highly sought after bag collection and a rise in the minimalist fashion trend. Whilst there are plenty of options available in leather picking a weaved version is a great way to make a subtle statement and ensure you stand out from the crowds.
The neutral colours of my weaved bucket bag make it perfect to wear with almost any outfit. I love that it has a stripy lining inside which gives it a slightly nautical feel. The light coloured shoulder strap and handle match my new P&Co card holder perfectly. If you’re worried a weaved bucket bag is going to make you look too much like a snake charmer then there are so many other weaved bags available in the shops right now. If you are off on holiday this Summer a straw tote will be perfect to take to the beach or a summer picnic.
I’m not usually a bag person but have already got so much use out of my raffia bucket bag and the timeless design will ensure I continue to do so for years to come!
