From street style stars to the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, we can't seem to escape the trend that is micro purses.

Straw basket bags are hotter than ever this summer, but they're not just for the beach.

Though the gorgeous straw styles from Cult Gaia and Clare V. may not suit everyone's budget, you can still score the cool-girl cary-all for a steal. Here are 14 under-$50 straw bags we'll be carrying all season.
