Straw this, straw that, straw is our new favourite word: as it all unfolded for PVC, see-through, oversized, cropped, lace and you name it, we have got it. Except this time the word (straw) is much more than just a Thing to Wear, a trend.
Wearing straw means styling for summer, and here’s why and how
A rough texture, a flexible feel, a defined pattern, a natural soul: these and its incredible versatility are the defining traits of straw. They, together with its typical golden beach colour, make up for the philosophy of wearing straw. But if you thought straw bags were just practical and nothing much on the aesthetically appealing side of things, our selection of straw jewel-like accessories will definitely draw your attention. Starting from the straw plus feathers combo as in this feather tassel pouch: fluffy is juxtaposed to the ripples of straw threads.
Pom-poms everywhere, even on summer straw handbags: don’t they just add that touch of contemporary and femininity to one of the must haves of the holiday season? How terribly precious they look.
If instead you have been nomad travelling to exotic locations this winter while we were slaving behind our screens (do you know of a job that doesn’t involve a screen?), now it’s when you will be walking the high street of your own hometown, mostly deserted, populated by tourists and wanderers. So just relax and get that laidback streetstyle look, that ‘I’m a local’ outfit, built ever so edgy that will put off lost travellers asking you directions to the nearest pizzeria. A straw tote matched with Vans sneakers says all the above.
Who are we kidding? Summer is for strolling on the beach, not on tarmac that melts in the scorching heat of Milan’s August: take a look at her. She’s got all she needs and even more in that flawy pink dress and multi stripes ‘baby bucket’.
If you are intrigued by these rather structured straw beach bags, the rounded shape is one of the classic ones to go for. A design that adds a touch of originality, perfect to master a minimalist beach look, or the maxi white dress look, or even, the ‘I’m wearing my one-piece swimsuit anywhere today’ look.
When we mentioned versatility the design of this straw purse is what we had in mind: juts to show you straw can be worn in the city, at work and even on formal occasions: this monochromatic outfit, ranging in its whites and beige tones, finds its statement thanks to the perfect shape of a straw handbag.
Boho chic: how not to mention it when in straw talks. We did it when it was the turn of straw hats, and the gist goes on repeat for the matching purses. This is made even more Bohemian by the tassel inserts: make it your daytime holiday companion.
Opulence. Opulence and straw are words we can find together if we look at the typical style of Sicilian artefacts: this huge tote has the same baroque and rococo motifs we have seen on D&G summer pieces. Plus, you can be opulent in fitting in as many things as you like in this straw tote bag.
