Summer is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start thinking about new additions to our wardrobes. With so many trends emerging, it can be difficult to decide what to invest in when it comes to handbags. If you’re struggling to narrow it down, we recommend going with straw and raffia accessories as they’re both timeless and match all summer outfits.
The Loewe Raffia Basket Bag, which retails at £450 here, is the “it” accessory of the moment for those looking to get involved in the “French girl” trend that has taken summer fashion by storm. Handcrafted with raffia and leather, the bag has become a cult piece for luxury fashion lovers due to its simple and elegant design.
However, for those of us looking to replicate this trend on a budget, £450 seems like an excessive amount to spend on a handbag. Luckily for us, M&S has come out with the perfect dupe for £400 less. “Very similar” to the Loewe Raffia Bag, say shoppers and TikTokers, the M&S Straw Striped Tote Bag retails at just £45 here, and is finally back in stock after previously selling out.
Fitted with an outside pocket and an internal zip for those of us who are always losing things, the bag is an easy-to-wear staple that will remain trendy for years to come. Available in a natural shade, like the classic Loewe bag, as well as pink and white, you can pick your favourite colour or treat yourself to all three to ensure you have a bag to suit every outfit.
We recommend pairing it with linen trousers and your favourite lightweight blazer for a clean cut, tailored look that’s perfect for any day out as the weather (finally) improves.
Looking for a straw alternative at an even lower price? This Contrast Binding Straw Bag is just £16.50 here from Shein.
