WICKER BAGS FOR SPRING AND SUMMER

One of my favorite things about spring is finally having an excuse to pull my beloved wicker bags out of my closet again. I’ve amassed quite a collection of wicker bags over the years (I’ll share a few photos below!) but they just make me so happy and each one adds a relaxed but chic element to spring and summer outfits. I’m also including rattan and straw bags in this round-up as well as all different shapes and sizes as all of them share a neutral color palette that work with every color in your wardrobe no matter where you’re headed this season. I hope you find a wicker handbag or two you love too!

WICKER BAGS FOR SPRING AND SUMMER

Amanda Lindroth Palm Beach tote

Amanda Lindroth Palm Beach tote, $150

A pretty open-top wicker tote that comfortably fits a wallet, phone, sunglasses, and more. It comes in some really fun colors but you can’t go wrong with the classic tan leather!

Mark & Graham leather circle handle straw beach bag

Mark & Graham leather circle handle straw beach bag, $119

I just ordered this one and the quality is great in person, though it’s worth noting it’s larger than I was imagining (more of a tote than a handbag). I love that you can add a subtle gold monogram to the leather handle!

Pamela Munson Avis tote

Pamela Munson Avis tote, $475

Pamela Munson makes some of my all-time favorite woven bags and this bamboo handle beauty is an instant classic. Wouldn’t it be pretty with an all white outfit and espadrilles?

Mark & Graham ribbon straw beach tote

Mark & Graham ribbon straw beach tote, $79

I love the knotted ribbon handles on this straw beach bag which comes in five pretty color combinations and can be monogrammed for a personal touch.

wicker bags J.McLaughlin

J.McLaughlin Evelynn wicker bucket bag, $198

Some of my very first wicker handbags came from J.McLaughlin — the quality is excellent and their designs stand the test of time. I love the striped lining on this wicker bucket bag style!

ASHA Sankaty clutch

ASHA Sankaty clutch, $895

A modern take on the timeless Nantucket lightship basket, this woven clutch is an eye-catching heirloom that will have strangers asking, “Where is that from?”

Lily & Bean tan straw tote

Lily & Bean tan straw tote, £60

Available in three sizes and endless color options, this straw tote is an easy bag to bring to the beach. You can add a painted monogram to the square on the front, but I almost prefer it without!

DeMellier Santorini bag

DeMellier Santorini bag, $265

The leather trim dresses up this straw tote enough to bring it out to dinner, and the size is perfect for carrying just the essentials.

Pamela Munson Gardner tote

Pamela Munson Gardner tote, $295

An elevated take on the canvas tote that’s perfect for the pool or daily use as a super chic summer diaper bag.

J.McLaughlin Christina wicker crossbody bag

J.McLaughlin Christina wicker crossbody bag, $168

I love the versatility of this wicker box bag that you can wear either as a crossbody bag or as a clutch with the chain tucked inside.

Mark & Graham hand-painted monogrammed straw beach bag

Mark & Graham hand-painted monogrammed straw beach bag, $99

There are so many cute color combinations for the stripe and monogram on this hand-painted straw tote. So cute with a brightly colored beach towel tucked inside!

Pamela Munson shell clutch

Pamela Munson shell clutch, $325

I could not be more in love with this wicker shell clutch that has a pearl closure and interior gold chain if you wish to be hands-free. I think it could even work as a statement accessory at a summer wedding!

Kate Spade Voyage wicker small top handle crossbody bag

Kate Spade Voyage wicker small top handle crossbody bag, $328

The shape of this top handle bag reminds me of a gorgeous (and far pricier) Mark Cross bag made a few years back, but the wicker woven with navy leather and the polka dot lining are uniquely Kate Spade.

Target straw tote

Target straw tote, $35

If you’re looking for an affordable straw beach bag, look no further. This one has long handles that make it easy for travel or at least toting towels to and from the beach.

wicker bags for spring and summer - Pamela Munson petite Isla Bahia gingham bag

Pamela Munson petite Isla Bahia gingham bag, $265

These knotted grosgrain straps are a Pamela Munson staple and I love that this straw tote is lined and has an exterior pocket making it more practical for everyday use.

Hat Attack Jane tote

Hat Attack Jane tote, $175

This brand makes some of my favorite straw hats so it figures that their straw totes are just as pretty! This one would also be a great pick for trips to the farmer’s market.

BTB sky Jules tote

BTB sky Jules tote, $150

I love the sky blue faux leather handles on this open weave tote from Tuckernuck.

Poolside Isola rattan tote

Poolside Isola rattan tote, $255

While it’s not inexpensive for a beach bag, I still think the knotted leather handles on this straw tote make it look higher-end than it is! I also don’t have anything quite like it which is putting it at the top of my wishlist.

J.McLaughlin Mable wicker crossbody bag

J.McLaughlin Mable wicker crossbody bag, $228

J.McLaughlin’s wicker clutches look great on women of all ages and I love the bamboo turn closure on this new style, which also has a detachable leather strap so it doubles as a crossbody.

Target straw shopper tote

Target straw shopper tote, $25

The least expensive woven bag on this list is also one of the roomiest — it’s a no-brainer if you’re looking for a no-frills straw tote that has plenty of space for pool towels.

wicker bags for spring and summer

Mark & Graham oversized ribbon straw beach tote, $99

I’m not saying you should carry your laptop in a straw bag; I’m just saying that you technically could with this one. Perfectly oversized if plan on bringing a book (or bottle of rosé!) to the beach.

wicker bags for spring and summer - Caterina Bertini straw tote bag

Caterina Bertini straw tote bag, $130

I love the contrast of a natural straw texture with more polished leather trim. I would carry this one day or night!

wicker bags for spring and summer - ASHA navy Cabana tote

ASHA navy Cabana tote, $295

I love the fringe trim on this straw tote that also comes in white.

wicker bags for spring and summer | J.McLaughlin Shirin mini wicker top handle bag

J.McLaughlin Shirin mini wicker top handle bag, $198

This petite top handle bag is admittedly more about looking pretty than carrying anything practical, but I have a hard time saying no to a bamboo handle!

Mark & Graham Palermo straw beach tote

Mark & Graham Palermo straw beach tote, $139

I like the boxy structure of this straw tote which means it will stand up on its own rather than lose its shape. The leather patch on the front is actually a detachable card case that can be personalized with a gold foil monogram — it’s like two accessories in one!

wicker bags for spring and summer | Pamela Munson pearl cornflower blue gingham clutch

Pamela Munson pearl cornflower blue gingham clutch, $325

I know, I know, two wicker clutches with pearl closures in one post, but how could I not?! I love the light blue gingham detail on the side of this one — I’d wear it with a navy cashmere sweater and white jeans for an outdoor dinner reservation.

Chloé x Mifuko large straw basket tote

Chloé x Mifuko large straw basket tote, $850

Handwoven by artisans in Kenya, this oversized straw tote has the prettiest pale blue leather trim — I swear this one picture doesn’t do it justice!

wicker bags for spring and summer

Mark & Graham palm leaf monogrammed tote bag, $89

I just ordered this style as well and it’s again larger than I was expecting in person! (Note to self: read the measurements for a change instead of just looking at the pictures!) But I love that it’s lined and the leather handles are super soft.

wicker bags for spring and summer | ASHA Monomoy basket

ASHA Monomoy basket, $995

If you have your heart set on a classic Nantucket lightship basket, I would shop antiques stores on island or peruse Etsy or eBay for a vintage reseller, but I do think this ASHA style is a fresh take that combines a familiar shape with more modern components like a leather strap and floral detail.

wicker bags for spring and summer | Mark & Graham straw tote

Mark & Graham handwoven straw tote with rope handle, $119

I feel like this casual nautical style just belongs on a boat, don’t you?

wicker bags for spring and summer | Dans La Main seagrass Kelly bag

Dans La Main seagrass Kelly bag, $525

This picture doesn’t do it justice, but this slouchy style is a summery homage to the Hermès Kelly shape — the brand’s Instagram has better photos where you can see the bag in action in a number of different colors.

wicker bags for spring and summer | Mark & Graham bamboo raffia handbag

Mark & Graham bamboo Elisabetta monogrammed raffia handbag, $398

The navy leather version of this bag is probably my most worn year-round handbag for several years running, so I had to include the raffia version in this spring and summer round-up! I personally prefer this style without the monogram (rare of me to say, I know!).

Chloé medium Marcie leather & raffia tote

Chloé medium Marcie leather & raffia tote, $690

The colorful leather trim and classic shape of this bag remind me of designs my mom worked on at Coach in the early 2000s but I think the look is just as current today. I love the idea of a pop of bright orange with summery blue and white stripes!

wicker bags for spring and summer | ASHA Madaket basket

ASHA Madaket basket, $695

This shape reminds me slightly of a basket my dear friend Carver (who is also one of my all-time most loyal blog readers — hi, friend!) carried to our wedding welcome party and I think this modern interpretation is so fun!

wicker bags for spring and summer | Mark & Graham crossbody bag

Mark & Graham wicker & leather crossbody bag with bamboo handles, $169

A pretty summer staple with or without the monogram, this is a great wicker bag to bring out for a dinner date. The navy version is gorgeous too!

wicker bags for spring and summer - Pamela Munson pearl navy tote

Pamela Munson petite Isla Bahia pearl navy tote, $275

A statement bag with knotted pearl and grosgrain handles and ample space for all your warm weather necessities.

wicker bags for spring and summer - J.Crew woven straw market tote

J.Crew woven straw market tote, $98

This straw tote became an instant go-to of mine last summer — you can see more pictures from when I was very pregnant with Peter in this post!
