The Timeless Bag French Girls Turn to Every Summer

Summer is nearly here and we can almost taste it (even if the weather isn’t quite as ready as we are). In our dreams, the next few months will consist of a European trip full of fresh-baked baguettes and morning espressos, but whether that’s a fantasy or reality really doesn’t matter. The first step in achieving the chicness of a European summer? French girls’ favorite accessory: the raffia bag.

Not only is a raffia bag effortlessly chic, but it’s also the wear-with-everything accessory you can truly get unlimited wear out of. Whether you style it with your favorite denim shorts and a T-shirt to give the look a little summer touch or a flirty dress for a Sunday brunch, there’s no outfit it doesn’t complete with a little je ne sais quoi.

While the raffia bag is a timeless staple, as the years have gone by, it’s gotten a few refreshes, meaning there’s one for everyone. With fun options like gemstones, cute keychains, and colored embroidery, these raffia bags are begging to be your best friend this summer.



A raffia bag in a neutral color is the ultimate go-to summer handbag. It will compliment any look you want to add with it, be it an all-neutral look or a colorful ensemble. From clutches to satchels, there is a silhouette for everyone.


With a pop of color

Do you feel like your outfit needs just a little bit of something? Opt for a raffia bag with a pop of color that will draw the eye and add a little fun to whatever it’s paired with. 


Bold and bright

Go bold or go home! If, for you, summer is the time to wear all the color you have been hiding during the bitter cold months, then these bags will have you clicking “add to cart.”
