And Now, the Biggest Accessory Trend to Know for Summer 2023

With summer fashion and vacation shopping at the top of our minds, we're diving into the best new pieces to add to your closet and the trends you should know before they get big. We've already covered some season-defining fashion trends of summer 2023, cool under-$300 shopping finds, the best swimsuits to add to your cart, and the fashion aesthetic on the rise. But if you are an accessory-minded shopper like me, you'll want to have your eyes on the raffia trend set to take over the season ahead.

Designers have debuted some of this season's cult buys with raffia bags and shoes that infuse cool, directional designs being the next big low-key beach accessory. Prada's tote bags were introduced last year and were nearly impossible to buy because they sold out everywhere. They returned this season in fresh colors and continue to be in high demand. Recently, Sofia Richie Grainge was spotted with one on her honeymoon. Designers including Loewe, Khaite, and Bottega Veneta have also introduced pieces that are selling out everywhere. Thankfully, you can snap up finds at great price points from brands including COS, Ancient Greek Sandals, and Banana Republic. Here are the best pieces to add to your cart to test-drive this season's raffia trend.
