Accessories Report: The Season Of Straw
To say that straw/raffia is having a fashion moment, would be a major understatement. It is everywhere and on everyone this summer! More refined than ever, stylized to fit the trends, beyond chic.
The obvious must-have is the straw bag. Structured silhouettes and intricate woven patterns are perfect dressed up or down. Try a smaller shape for a sophisticated take on the day bag…desk-to-dinner ready. For your more casual moments, beach and weekend bags have become true personality pieces with whimsical designs, bold stripes and mixed media touches…let the true summer-you shine.
Hat lovers rejoice…the summer-staple straw hat goes a bit more modern. Once relegated to the seaside, your wide-brimmed, beachy favorites now look city-sleek when paired with bold florals and dots. New silhouettes also make the scene. Choose a sports-luxe baseball cap style for your weekend brunches and shopping sprees…fun and function collide.
How about a pair of raffia shoes…and we aren’t talking about espadrilles? On-trend raffia sandals, with hero heels are the fashionista choice for work, for evenings out and those summer soirees. Of course, casual-chic is more your vibe, we are obsessed with all things Castaner for the perfect high-heeled, wedge espadrilles and flatform sandals. While jute is the main fiber used in their resort creations, it has a similar look and feel to straw…long-lost fashion cousins perhaps.
No matter how you style these textural pieces, that add a warm weather joie de vivre to your everyday, everywhere essence.
