The Edit: 11 Ways to Wear Raffia This Summer

It’s not just for beach bags.


Originally I was going to include only raffia purses in this post, but upon doing a little research (aka: online window shopping), it became evident that raffia is popping up all over place and it certainly isn’t limited to purses. In fact, I found raffia shoes, necklaces, dresses—even crop-top and midi skirt combos. Read on for proof that raffia has moved way beyond beach bags.
