‘It’ bags are a widespread fashion phenomenon. From the Gucci 1955 crossbody bag and the iconic Lady Dior to mini bags like Jacquemus’ candy-coloured Le Chiquito, the most coveted bag of the season changes, well, seasonally. While we love the trendy silhouettes of the latest ‘It’ bag, it is handy to have one versatile silhouette in your wardrobe. The handbag equivalent of wardrobe essentials like Oxford shirts, black dresses, and trench coats, tote bags are the trusty friend you’ll turn to day after day, year after year. So, when it comes to investing in one of the best tote bags, it pays to do your research. 

Generally roomy enough to fit all your essentials, most tote bags also come equipped with comfortable and sturdy shoulder straps or top handles. They also offer a wide variety of fabric options – from polished leather and nylon to canvas and even crochet.

Whether you’re headed to the office with your laptop and lunch in tow, to the park for a summer picnic, or are off to a sunny locale stocked up with beach essentials, a tote bag is the ideal choice. So ditch those flimsy cotton shoppers and shop the best long-lasting tote bags from our edit.
