Whether this summer's plans have you sitting poolside, sunbathing on the beach, or meandering around a seaside city, there's one thing you can't forget to pack: a straw tote. Think of it as the It bag of the summer season, perfect for any event under the sun—even if that's getting from point A to point B. 

Supermodel Claudia Schiffer was spotted carrying her favorite straw tote made by designer Anya Hindmarch. (Did I mention straw totes come in luxury and affordable versions?) Personalized with her initials, there's no mistaking Schiffer's casual carryall for anyone else's. Plus, she can carry it with everything from a swimsuit and towel to a skirt and sandals; it never looks out of place or out of style. 

Since the classic straw bag has been around forever, there are endless iterations, many of which incorporate other materials like leather, grosgrain ribbon, or even pearl embellishments. So while the straw bag remains relatively neutral, there are several ways to make this timeless trend feel personal and unique at almost any budget.

What can't you fit inside this big beach-ready bag?

At just $25, this carryall is working overtime.

Structured handles help this tote keep its shape.

Straw totes that have more structured are good for carrying heavier objects like laptops. 

Looks like a luxury label for way, way less.

Of course, J.Crew nails the classic straw tote.
