I was just about to put my straw tote away during my wardrobe purge when I saw this latest look (the middle one above) of Alexa Chung. I knew a straw tote is practical and easy-going. Its ability to add a touch of bohemian glamour to any outfit also makes it never go out of style.

But I never thought I can carry it to a fancy dinner or a formal event while teaming it with something delicate as silk and lace, or glittering as metallic pieces.
