This Season’s Must-Have Bag

By: Caroline Sheridan

If you follow even just one blogger, she has probably featured a bamboo or straw bag more than a few times this season. The trend seems to have stemmed from the now-iconic Cult Gaia bamboo bag, which comes in four sizes and a variety of colors. Now, bags made from bamboo and straw are all over the place and have quickly become the “it” bag of this spring and summer. With so many options (seriously, so many), you are sure to find a bag that fits your own personal style and budget. Get your hands on one of these options below.

The bag that is absolutely everywhere this season. It is a little on the pricier side, but its striking design totally stands out. It also comes in a bevy of acrylic colors if you want it to pop even more.

Circle bags are a trend all of their own this year too, but this crossbody from Urban Outfitters combines the best of these two looks. The straw is neutral enough to wear with everything you own, but the circular shape makes it fun and fresh.

If black is your neutral, this is the bag for you. The dark color does not draw attention to the fact that it is bamboo, but rather brings a summery feel to your favorite color to wear. Plus, the shape is playful and fun.

How cool is this bamboo option? It collapses completely flat for easy storage or display, but rolls up to be a cylindrical shape with plenty of room to stash all your belongings
