Folks! Let’s start this week with another #TrendAlert as there’s been some changes in fashion these past weeks with summer going full on living. Except people embracing the full summer fashion with colors, playsuits, tropical prints and prints in general; there’s been a significant increase of the use of straw accessories lately. So here’s #TrendAlert: straw accessories 2017!

Straw Accessories 2017

The straw accessories 2017 are exactly what it sounds like, accessories done in a straw material. Mainly bags and hats, but some shoes have been popping up here and there. Straw fashion is nothing new, but quite the vintage style as it’s been on and off for the past century. Straw hats can specifically be found during the summer months, often accompanied with the bags. The sand/beige/natural color is the most common one, but all black or dyed in white, pink or turquoise exists too. For the past few years, hats with a quote embroidered on them have been trending. As for the bags, they’ve been popular with details of pompoms!  

How To Wear It

The best part about straw accessories 2017 are that they’re immensely fun to style as the material is a chic statement. They work well with other statement materials as denim, patent leather, (faux) leather and even (faux) suede. As the straw texture has a rather light feeling to it, it contrasts the other materials in a favorable way. Read more about how to contrast here. The best part about the material though is that it’s so closely associated with summer that it adds that summer vibe to any outfit. This makes it particularly fun to pair with other typical summer looks as the tropical prints, popping colors, maxi dresses and playsuits.

As the natural color of the straw accessories is a neutral one it can be matched with whatever color you prefer more or less. It’s great with the popping colors (hot pink, orange, red, sun yellow etc), works well with the other neutrals and also with pastels. If I were to avoid a shade it’d be the colors that are within the beige scale, as the combo would give a rather sleepy impression. But I love to be positively surprised so hit me with those color combos too!

A Chic Example

Lol, I’ve already included this outfit on the blog before, but inspiration can also be repeated huh? However, love the simplicity of the outfit and the warm feeling the straw hat adds. The gorgeous midi dress is rather flowy in its style, which the structure of the straw hat balances. The volume of the sleeves is matched with the clean and simple lines of the hat. The light color of the shoes works well with the color of the hat too. The dark sunnies also work with the band of the straw hat. It kind of looks like the perfect look for some afternoon tea outside huh?! Love it!

  1. Brilliant trend spot, your blog is always SO well informed! Loving straw accessories right now, especially hats – in fact, more so hats than bags, for sure. There are so many chic options around right now, though my fave style always seems to have wide-brim. Gorgeous!

I’ve only experimented with straw bags (clutches) but love the look of a straw hat, mainly in the beige I’ve been seeing all over; I need to get one! You’ve shared some really great tips for styling these pieces with other fabrics that would make for a fantastic combination and contrast, too!
