The little shoulder bag: If you thought this straw bag trend was restricted to bulky carryalls or oversized totes, you would certainly be incorrect. The mini shoulder bag is the easiest way to rock this trend, for a more sophisticated spin on the essential summer straw bag. This particular Instagram look catches our attention, with the addition of a woven chain strap purse. Meanwhile, the delicate white eyelet crop top, high-waisted white shorts and narrow white cat eye sunglasses help to complete this #ootd.

The round bag: By now, many of us have spotted the round bag trend, whether on the city sidewalks, on our favourite celebrities or on social media. However, round straw handbags are the latest trend for the current season. This woven circular purse pairs flawlessly with a sleeveless ruffled white blouse and a pair of casual black pants. For a finishing touch, flat leather sandals wrap up the neutral sartorial statement.

Pom-poms everywhere: Making their splash on accessories everywhere, pom-poms are a youthful, free-spirited fad. We are liking this take on the pom-pom trend, which features poms and fringe tassels on a mini straw bag. Meanwhile, the white blouse with a frilly neckline and boho style blue midi skirt help to bring the look to new levels.
