This Bag was Hot in the 60s. Now It's Back. Here are a Few Tips on How to Rock This Year's Hottest Bag Trend.
The fashion gatekeepers have highlighted a laundry list of trends from the days of old that will be making a reappearance this year. And we love the idea of this: bridging the past with the present to create a new treasure trove of gems we would have perhaps seen our parents or grandparents wearing back in the day. We're diving into all of these throwbacks this season, starting with our favorite -- straw bags. Straw bags have been a functional accessory since the days of ancient Egypt. They arrived on the fashion scene in the late 60s and 70s, with icons like Jane Birkin helping to increase their popularity. They have since come a long way.

IN 2020, THESE BEAUTIES ARE BACK IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES AND HAVE EVOLVED WAY BEYOND SUN, SEA AND SAND.
Maybe it's our love for the islands. Maybe it's our obsession with the beach. But we have always loved a nice straw bag. In their 2020 reincarnation, these beauties are back in all shapes and sizes and have evolved way beyond sun, sea and sand territory. They are perfect for a breezy day on the beach, but can also be glammed up for a night out, or toned down for a long day at work. They're a great way to add a little texture and points of interest to your outfit.
When it comes to styling your straw bag, we love the idea of pairing it with gold or rose gold accessories, and makeup with a more nude-natural color palette. We hope you'll experiment this season. Hit us up in the comments and let us know which style is your favorite! -- xoxo, SS
