Spring Summer 2019 Trend: Raffia
Think raffia and you’re dreaming of those cute round Bali bags, pina coladas and endless summers. That right there is what raffia does! It gets us all dreamy about summer *sigh*.
Raffia is big this season and will continue to make way to our wardrobe for spring summer 2019! Once reserved for beaches and vacays, this key embellishment is making “waves” from being the hottest IT bag to being used as perk-me-up pieces on accessories and clothes. It really makes us wonder if raffia is the new pompom for the season!
