Meghan Markle's Summer-Perfect J.Crew Clutch Is Back, Baby
Last Summer, both Meghan Markle and Pippa Middleton showed their love for J.Crew in the form of a rattan clutch, curved at the top and complete with a sophisticated leather buckle. Meghan wore the bag with a denim Carolina Herrera dress and Aquazzura shoes for a polo match, where she supported Prince Harry. Meanwhile, Pippa made a couple of appearances at Wimbledon, showing off her maternity style in both a bishop-sleeved floral midi and white eyelet Anna Mason number, the same exact accessory right by her side. It's a full year later, and woven basket bags and straw clutches are still very much Summer season appropriate.
Just in time, J.Crew came out with a new iteration of the mini It item, albeit in a more rectangular shape, retailing for $90 (the neon petal shade is on sale for $75, FYI). We're fully confident that both Meghan and Pippa would support us in our decision to pick up a remake of their classic clutch, which can continue to finish off our breezy dresses until the last couple weeks of September. And just remember, this adorable bag with a striped interior has staying power, so you can fully expect to give it wear in 2020, too. Read ahead to get inspired, then shop the exact J.Crew design, along with similar options if you have slightly different taste.
