Best Bet: Kayu Red Straw and Turquoise Clutch

As summer winds down, fight the temptation to bring out those somber colors and heavier fabrics prematurely. The last few weeks of late sunsets call for vibrant colors like this bright red clutch from Kayu. The hand-woven straw pairs beautifully with the gold-trimmed turquoise clasp for an unusual mix of colors and textures that will easily be the center of attention. Pair it with a pretty summer dress and savor those balmy evenings.
