The Best Wicker Bags For Spring and Summer: 2024

Today I thought I’d share some of the best wicker bags and straw handbags for spring and summer.

As the weather warms up and spring turns into summer, it’s time to swap out your heavy winter bags for something lighter and breezier.

Wicker bags are the perfect solution – and for good reason.

Wicker Bags for Spring and Summer

This collection of wicker bags are lightweight, stylish, and perfect for carrying all your essentials.

No wonder they’ve become a quintessential part of warm-weather wardrobes!

It’s safe to say this look started with Jane Birkin and her famous original wicker bag.

Fast forward to today – there are now tons of iterations of the woven style bag, so I thought I’d narrow down the selection by featuring several of my favorites here.

This post also includes bamboo bags, the best designer straw bags, and the best raffia bags, and not the ones at the luxury price point.

Saint Laurent YSL Crochet Raffia Hobo

Starting with this splurge of mine from last year, which I’m excited to start wearing again this season.

Truly the perfect straw handbag for me, love both the look and the hands free functionality of a cross body bag!

Although you can also comfortably wear it as a shoulder bag too, if this is more your style.

I especially love how it looks with all white outfits.

Pamela Munson Shell Clutch

I love all the innovative designs from this label, but this shell shape clutch is my current favorite.

If you’re looking for more of an elegant rattan evening bag, this statement bag with a pearl closure from Pamela Munson is so much fun, making it a great pick.

Loewe Leather Trimmed Basket Bag

Another perfect bag, the Loewe basket bag has been on my radar for a quite some time now.

If you’re looking for something smaller and more compact, the Ulla Johnson Mini Woven Bag above, is a great choice.
