Because choosing the ultimate summer bag is never easy, we've handpicked the top 20 of this season's must-have straw bags to kick-start your summer.

If you thought the straw basket was reserved for carrying flowers back from market or stuffing your belongings into for a day at the beach, you'd be mistaken.

Rocked by Alexa Chung and a flurry of fashion-savvy mers, the straw basket is shaping up to be this summers 'it' bag. Be prepared, its going to be big...and probably covered in pom poms.

Whether you have a beach holiday or city break planned this year, teaming your basket bag with everything from a kaftan and swimsuit, to palazzo trousers and deconstructed blouse will complete a très chic look.

A practical way to add a bit of colour and fun to an outfit, these well-sized, structured bags also mean you won't have to choose between your compact and sunglasses when leaving the house. 

Whether you prefer the oversized embellished Sicilian-style tote, or a smaller, subtle French-cool wicker basket, these straw-based wardrobe staples instantly get you in the mood for sun.
