You know that summer is just around the corner when a slew of straw handbags start cropping up everywhere. When it comes to straw handbags, however, I have some really mixed feelings. The material is natural, neutral, and light weight. It is the perfect material for beach totes and it looks pretty nifty as well! It is the everyday styles that I am somewhat hesitant about. I mean, you can only have a hit or a miss. So when I heard that Rebecca Minkoff had given her own spin on the straw handbag, I found myself quite intrigued. Were they going to be a hit or a miss? Well, I think it depends on the style!
Rebecca Minkoff took some of your favorite styles and gave them a straw makeover. But the straw doesn’t look as good on some styles as it does on others. I saw the Morning After Mini and… well… I wasn’t impressed. But take a look at the Love at First Sight Tote and Baby Belle Crossbody. Cute and super cute! The slouchy shape of the tote compliments the straw nicely, while the small size of the crossbody isn’t overwhelmed by the boldness of the stripe pattern. It’s as if these styles were made to have a straw version! And like most straw handbags, these guys are reasonably priced so there’s no need to feel guilty at the end of the summer!
