7 Summery Straw Totes

Get a handle on summer style—these totes will carry everything you need (and more).


Kayu St. Tropez Tote


Large enough to hold all of your warm-weather essentials (sunscreen, sunglasses, and a bottle of water), but petite enough to carry as an everyday purse, you’ll have this one on repeat for the rest of the summer. Pom-pom embellishments and an orange and white striped handle add a pop of color to the natural-hued straw.
