The Last Straw

Nothing says summer like a bit of straw – on your feet and your arm. Espadrilles and straw bags are nothing new but they’re going nowhere this season. If you are heading away, staycation-ing or just want to feel a bit more summery then swap your leather for some straw.

Straw Circle Shopper Bag £30 Warehouse

I have the natural colour, but also love the black mix version.

Sardinia Bag £65 Hush

The photo on their website has a baguette sticking out of it – need I say more… Holiday in a nutshell.

Cannes Bag £49 Hush

The perfect beach bag. It also comes with black stars on if you are channelling a monochrome look.

Powder Serena Paper Straw Tassel Bag £48 John Lewis

For a smaller day to day bag, this is a goodie.

Round Paper Straw bag £17.99 H&M

If you don’t want to spend much, then this is a great option and it has the added benefit of a zip which not that many of this type of bag do.

And now for the feet. The equivalent of the straw bag for your tootsies is an espadrille. Nothing new there and you’ve probably already got a wedge in the back of the wardrobe, so here’s how to make them SS19: go flatform and slider-y:

Kleverer Flatform Sliders £119 Carvela

These come in leopard, black and gold and are perfect if you’re after some additional height without having to forgo comfort with a heel.

Klever Flatform Espadrille £109 Carvela

A less chunky flatform on these and lovely in either snake, tan or white.

Flatform Sandals £69.99 Gaimo for Office

If you want to be strapped in, then go for these which are a gorgeous rose gold colour.

If you haven’t already embraced the straw, then what are you waiting for?
