Top 5 of the week: Bag straps

Lately I’ve been noticing a lot of cute bag straps out and around, and they seem like a good way to bring new life to bags you’re a little bored with, and to add a little print to the party. This bright woven specimen from Clare V is made for their new drawstring tote—which I love—but you could pair it with just about anything.

I’m crazy for any good star print, and this one just makes me happy (here it is in blue and gold, which is slightly more subdued).

Of course I am all over this camo print.

Here’s one for when you’re in the mood to be loud.

I like that this looks somewhat like an actual guitar strap.

    This is interesting.
    I can bring some life to those coach bags of my mom’s with the too short mom straps perhaps..

    i love this -i saw a friend recently &she did this to her Hermes bag (that orange saddle bag style) & it instantly made it more interesting.

    Great post! I am very intrigued and may back order the Claire V. It seems like a polished boho touch for summer.
    I already bought a Patricia Nash strap — a “chain link” leather strap in cognac last month. It has brought new life to and matches 3 of my bags- including a Madewell bucket and a little coach legacy leather penny bag that I never used. With the strap, the leather penny bag is my go-to weekend purse this summer. Four women have stopped me and asked me where to buy. Even better, it quenched my need for a new bag.

    Idea: maybe my son won’t notice if I borrow a guitar strap for my bag.

    We try to find interesting guitar straps on our travels, but always find the same brand name no matter where we go: Levy’s out of Montreal, a home-grown company. Why did I not think of purse strap possibilities before?

    Such a good idea! The Clare V one just arrived, and it’s perfect for refreshing my old workhorse Clare V (from back when she was Clare Vivier) messenger bag.
