Tote bags are an essential part of my ‘everyday’ outfit look. Going to meetings or just doing errands, they are my bag of choice to hold everything that I may need in one place! Because tote bags are used regularly as well as in a variety of situations, I’m careful to select a tote that is classic, well-made and in a neutral/ versatile color. Most importantly, the tote needs to be lightweight. I often carry my laptop or books so the lighter the bag, the better!
Tote Bags for Work and Play: My Faves
The Louis Vuitton ‘Neverfull’, Saint Laurent ‘Shopping’ and the Goyard ‘Saint Louis’ totes shown below are my fave classic totes that I use on rotation. Not only lightweight, these are all minimal in their design resulting in a clean, uncomplicated look. My tote du jour is the Saint Laurent. In classic black, it is elegant and timeless.
I use my bags on a daily basis for years, so I’m willing to spend a little more to make sure that I get one that I will love to use. Below are some totes at a slightly lower price point that I also like… 🙂
