Calling It: After Spring Everyone Will Shop This Bag

While paying particularly close attention to the street style at New York Fashion Week this season, we spotted simple string bags start to gain momentum. You may already be familiar with the trend, having used it in the past as your grocery bag, but now, we see it as the perfect extension of the straw bag that's been dominating all year. It hasn't just been spotted on the street. We've noticed the bag trend pop up on Instagram in flat lay posts, and as we head into the warmer months, we're feeling convinced it's the bag everyone will soon be carrying.

That's not even the best part. What we love most, is that it’s an affordable piece to quickly update your accessory rotation, with all the options we've sourced coming in under $100. The one style tip we’re taking away from street style? Layer it over a stiff leather bucket bag, to give the layered effect, or, shop this option from Staud.
