By now, I’m sure you’ve all over my Instagram and here on The A List that I definitely succumbed to the biggest trend this season: the wicker bag trend. It’s pretty hard not to – there are so many cute and chic wicker bags this year! Today, I’m rounding up some of my favorites – both currently in my closet and on my wish list.
There are multiple ways to say it – wicker, straw, rattan – but they’re all THE bag of the moment. It’s hard to find a look on Instagram or on your favorite bloggers’ site without seeing one and with good reason. There are so many stylish and even adorable wicker bags right now that even my husband thinks I may need to have an intervention (I use the excuse that we live in Los Angeles so I will get plenty of use out of them throughout the year ha!).
I’d say the wicker bag trend really began last summer with Cult Gaia’s famous Ark bags. Almost every blogger has one now and it’s really easy to see why. The design is unique, but also what shocked many of you was how such a popular bag actually ran for under $100 (they’re now $125). While $125 is still not “cheap”, it’s a bit more affordable than other bags that can tack on another 0 or two to that number. It has been such a popular bag that even my two besties Raquel and Addy have the same bag as me.
Wicker bags are both extremely versatile and a lot of fun. There are multiple ways to dress up a wicker bag. My favorite ways are with a scarf (seen here) or with pom pom tassels (seen here). One of the most popular wicker bags these days is the Nannacay Baby Roge bag (last seen here). I mean, how adorable is it? I asked you all on Instagram Story which one I should go with (white, red, black, orange, or rainbow) and the votes were split between white and red!
Another super popular bag right now is the Serpui Destiny bag. I fell in love with this bag the first moment I saw it. You can currently preorder a black version, however I heard a rumor they may re-introduce this original bag later in the year.
I don’t see the wicker bag trend dying down anytime soon, at least I won’t let it! There are so many cool options – both affordable and high end – for the summer that easily completes any outfit. Below are a list of my favorite wicker bags currently:
Pom Pom Bags
– This bamboo bag also mentioned above (I have the small). Now it comes in a multitude of colors such as white, red, green, and black, despite all not being wicker/bamboo. It’s still a really cool bag!
– I am currently expecting the arrival of this bag later today all the way from Portugal! It was custom made (so it took 2-3 weeks) and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.
– I recently received this circle straw bag from Morocco thanks to the recommendation from my friend Grace at The Stripe (see her post here). I had been looking for an affordable version of a Rachel Comey circle straw bag from last year and this was it!
– This straw bag is my favorite beach bag at the moment. I love the pink details (also comes in blue) and how much it actually can fit inside of it! I also LOVE this one for grocery shopping or a visit to the flower market.
