Looking for a stylish hold-all that can take you from the beach to the bar and everything in between? Throw a tote over your shoulder. Tote bags have risen through the style ranks in recent years to become a smart-casual staple, perfect for updating your accessory rotation and having enough room to store all your essentials (and some non-essentials too). Here you’ll find everything you need to discover how to wear a tote bag, while still exuding effortless cool – wherever the day takes you.
1. Cut it Out
Geometric cut-outs are the one this season’s note-worthy design details, as seen on our Lucy shopper bag. Ideal for adding a splash of colour to any outfit, this statement-maker’s mustard hue and resin handle hue makes it stand out for all the right reasons.
2. Bring the Beads
Beads are everywhere this season. Spliced with black and nude-hued adornments which are crafted by hand, our beaded shopper offers an easy way to incorporate this key trend into your bag collection without sacrificing practicality. Ideal for holiday wanders or chilled-out weekends, this piece pairs well with just about everything in your wardrobe.
3. Say it with Stripes
Offering a more refined take on nautical styling, the Madeline stripe shopper bag is an effortlessly cool way to wear the classic trend this season. The brown leather-look trims lend further definition to the pale palette, making it feel chic enough for the park, the beach and weekend diary dates.
4. Fresh Prints
Scarf prints have made their mark on recent runways – and now they’re spanning across this season’s accessories too. Blending a bold, bohemian-inspired design with a soft, slouchy fabrication, this spacious style works equally as well in the city as it does at your next festival.
5. All White
For a fresh take on weekday styling, our Tracey tote bag ticks all the right boxes. Imagined in clean white, this piece is perfect for taking you seamlessly from desk to drinks – we like how it’s spacious enough for all your office essentials but small enough to not feel bulky on a night out. Smart yet versatile, it’s also well-suited to weekends and summer city breaks.
