The wooden bags this year are commonly done are crossbody bags but also regular ones. This trend relates to the straw bags, both in its style and how they can be matched. The wooden bags are often kept natural and undyed, which means that the color often spans from darker brown to lighter beige. It’s popular to create some sort of pattern with the wood, often more geometrical ones. Going for beaded wood bags are also popular and is certianly growing in popularity.

How To Wear The Wooden Bags

As we’re talking about bags, you can more of less work your regular outfits with your wooden bags 2019. But there are of course ways you can optimize the trend! Regarding statement materials, it’s always a good idea to pair it with other, more prominent, materials such as denim, leather, suede, faux fur etc. It’ll be a fun clash for sure. As the wooden material is quite definite, it can also be fun to pair it with more delicate and light materials of tulle, silk and lace. Another thing you can take into consideration is that wood is closely associated with more earthy materials and looks. That means that wood will be a smooth match with linen, crochet, paisley, the animal prints etc. Regarding colors, it can be chic to go for more dove colors such as olive green, mustard yellow, wine red, lavender, rose, off-white and so on. The more natural look of these colors will blend nicely with the wooden bags!

    • Same here! I’ve admired them but I don’t own one haha! Xx

  1. Yes! I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately. Zara has a few that I want for sure, but I’ve been holding off because I just don’t know how functional they are in real life?

    • Hahah I don’t think they’re that functional unfortuanetly. The ones I’ve seen have been tiny! Xx

  2. The wooden bags are such statement pieces! I’ve just bought me one a few weeks ago and I’m totally obsessed with it. The bag goes with any style and colour, it’s really worth the investment.

    • OH that’s lovely! Can’t wait to see it in an outfit soon! Xx

  3. The wooden bags area really pretty but I just kinda wish that they would fit a bit more than they do. One of my dream bags is the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle but because of it’s wooden structure, it literally fits nothing!
