I myself have two straw bags , one I bought last year from Mango as it looked so much like the designer Lowe version, love a good designer lookalike. They have bought it back out this year with a slight variation, I’ve included it in my edit as I still think it’s a great nod to the designer version.

My other one is a round cross body straw bag from M&S last spring when I wanted to jazz up my summer day to day outfits. I am this year looking for a slightly larger shopper style to add to the collection. Would love a monogrammed one but that is another edit all together!

My two straw bags from last summer

Before the edit here is some designer bag inspiration. These are investment pieces and beautiful bags that would last and stand the test of time. But if, like mine your budget doesn’t stretch that far, the next best thing is a high street alternative.
