Spring Trend: Straw

Straw is everywhere this season. From bags to jewelry to shoes, it is a material to be reckoned with. I have been traveling the world (as I love to do) and from Greece to Columbia, straw is all the rage. 

So what are the best straw pieces for any gal to own? Well that depends on how much straw you can handle.  I’m privy to say that all your summer looks will pop with a great straw addition!

Panama Hat

The most obvious addition to your wardrobe should be the Panama Hat. It is a classic piece and will long out-run the straw trend. Not to mention this topper protects your face from the sun AND it adds that extra oomph that your look deserves. I’m typically not a “matchy” stylist, but pairing your Panama Hat with neutral straw earrings is chic as shit. Yup, I said it.

 


 

Earrings

Yay to a colorful straw earring!!! I bought this fabulous pair in Columbia for $35, yes, 35 bucks!! The beauty of these straw earrings is that they are huge statement earrings and they weigh NOTHING. So go big or go home, why not? They are such a fun accent piece for your look and definitely a conversation starter!

 


 

Crossbody Bag

My straw obsession is truly focused on all things bags right now. I might argue that getting a straw bag is MORE important than getting a Panama Hat. Might. It is the easiest way to incorporate the straw trend into any look instantly. There are a TON of straw bag styles on the market that are fun and flirty, I’m loving the messenger bag. They are typically pretty inexpensive making it easy to say YES to the straw bag trend!

 


 

Clutch

 

Another popular straw bag style is the clutch. Adding a colorful tassel incorporates your personality and steps up the neutral color of the straw material. I bought all those attending my 40th birthday in the Dominican Republic a clutch with a personalized tassel. I love this trend so much that I passed it on to 17 people!!!

 

 


 

Sandals

And finally, the straw sandal. What can I say but, “YAAAASSSSSSSSSS!!!” These are amazing AND they will go with almost everything. Jean shorts? Yup. Sundress? Hell yes. Sassy drawstring pants? Duh. Don’t even question this, buy them. I know I’m promoting owning all of these straw trend items, but that is because I seriously love them. Not to mention, they aren’t that expensive so the commitment will only sting a little…..
