Of course the straw bag was born beach ready!  But if you love a straw bag as much as we do, why not carry it right through into Autumn?  We’re going to show you how this versatile accessory can be reworked even after your holiday. 

What a scorching summer we’ve had! After months of floral dresses and strappy sandals, it can be hard not to want to throw on a turtleneck sweater the moment you feel a slight chill in the air.  The weather can be unpredictable during this time of the year, mornings can often be chilly, but by lunchtime, the September sun is too warm for oversized knits and big boots.  It’s time to transition into the new season smoothly, with lightweight layers, natural tones and of course your favorite summer accessory, the straw bag.

While you may not want to let go of your heavy leather tote, a woven bag is a perfect alternative for storing all your essentials.  This lovely lighter option promises to freshen up any Autumn outfit.  For an easy, every-day look, opt for natural shades, a relaxed cotton blouse and a pair of wide-leg trousers.

 

 

This look is all about mastering the monochromatism, beige tones, trousers and a trench.

 

When the sun is shining, go for a touch of Parisian chic. Opt for a cardigan-and-jeans combination and complete your look with a silk scarf tied around your basked bag. This carefree look will make you feel like you’re on holiday in your own city.

 

 

For those chillier days, embrace layering and don’t be afraid to contrast textures.
  Try experimenting with a velvet blazer or tanned corduroy.  

 

Straw bags shouldn’t be reserved for the beach!
