Accessorise your way through the heatwave with something woven.

The truth of the matter is that basket bags really do only work in the warmer months. Rain and raffia are not a match made in heaven. Thankfully, the weather is finally giving us the little bit of sunshine we deserve. So, with that in mind, there's no better time to invest in a straw bag that is as practical as it is chic.

If you needed any convincing that these bags are more chic than most, Jane Birkin sported what is essentially a picnic basket around for much of the 1970s. No wonder this simple, yet effective, accessory has been a cult favourite ever since.

Jacquemus' Le Panier Soleil raffia basket remains a firm favourite on Instagram, appearing in the crooks of plenty of influencers' arms. At £335, this basket bag is quite a steal compared to other designer versions, which will set you back around the £850 mark. Perhaps this, along with the fact it's a beauty, has resulted in the ever-growing waiting list.

Meanwhile, Loewe's Paula's Ibiza collections, which this season features straw bags in all shapes, sizes and colours, is a must-have for any holiday packing list. The trademark raffia tote is trimmed with leather and stamped with a logo patch making this cult-favourite easy to spot a mile off.

On the high street, too, there are plenty of baskets from which to choose. Whether you're after something enormous to carry everything (and the kitchen sink) down to the beach or in favour of something to strictly carry essentials only. There are plenty of raffia offerings in all manner of shapes and sizes.

Mango's simple basket bags with tan leather handles and a drawstring inner pouch, a handy feature to keep your belongings safely tucked away, are a winner. While Whistles' straight-forward 'jute' basket, complete with gold hardware fastening, is the perfect go-with-everything accessory.
