Move Fast: J.Crew Brought Back This Sold-Out Clutch

Last year, I happened upon what I can only describe as the perfect straw clutch. It was a chic rectangular shape that felt like the ideal size to hold in your hand. It was unadorned yet stylish—something that could go with any outfit, especially summer wedding dresses.

I liked the subtle, neutral details: simple leather straps and clasp, and tan linen interior. I was surprised to have found it at J.Crew, which isn't usually a place I shop, but the design was versatile, timeless, and sophisticated. Best yet, it rang in at under $100. Clearly, many people felt the same attraction to it because the bag had sold out by the next day. As I carried it around that summer, I got constant compliments and questions about it.

As soon as spring hit this year, I started carrying it again (because the style truly is so timeless), and the questions started rolling in again. So, I had to move quickly to share this with you when I was perusing the J.Crew website yesterday and saw the brand had brought the bag back this year.

And for 2017, it even added an additional colorway to the mix: a rose pink. So, if you're in the market for a straw bag, I'd recommend snatching this one up before it sells out again, which it is sure to do.

Keep scrolling to shop the bag I bring to every summer wedding and beyond.
