What are your summer style staples? Mine are most definitely jersey maxi dresses in black or marl grey, straw handbags and delicate camisole tops. That might seem like quite a simple list, but those three essentials shape my summer wardrobe every year.
Statement straw totes are having a real moment, this season, and are all over the high street. This trend has made me very happy, and it feels like every other week I’m sharing a new “must-have” bag in the Weekly Wish List posts. So I apologise if this is getting super boring. However, I have yet another style to share: the Whistles Aloha handbag. Isn’t it lovely?
I’d pair the circular straw handbag with Baukjen’s minimalist maxi dress and Somerset by Alice Temperley’s cool gladiator sandals. But I also think the bag would look great with a retro-inspired outfit (think Emma Stone’s wardrobe in La La Land). So try pairing it with printed shirt-dresses and gingham button-downs if that look is more up your street.
