The Best Every-Day Tote Bags That Will (Finally) Fit All Your *Stuff*
By Nikolina Ilic | Jul 22, 2021
Yes, I know I already have six million totes, but this one – this one is different.
We’re not talking about those regular totes that you get from gift stores, as a souvenir or for grocery shopping, we’re talking about totes that are constructed with serious use in mind, made of highly durable materials for dragging everywhere; designed with pockets to hold a full day’s worth of stuff; and some are even stylish enough to replace your purse if you need to go day to night, too.
If you think you have a tote that does everything you need, you’ll want to take a look at this list of some of the best tote bags out there. It just might make you reconsider. Although there’s nothing wrong with a canvas bag for some days, these totes are built to go above and beyond—and accrue some style points, too. Form and function? Sign us up.
Prene the Bec Bag
Prene Bags are the go-to for anything neoprene. A major vibe for any WH mama out there, this bag is super luxurious with its brushed gold hardware and perforated exterior, but it also has 10 internal pockets, 4 external pockets, a removable baseboard and is vegan friendly. You’re welcome.
Zara brown tote bag
This suede brown bag is the perfect buy that will work not only with your activewear, but alongside a jeans/shirt combo, too. Not only is it incredible soft to touch but it also comes with Zara’s new ‘The Green to Wear 2.0 standard’ which aims to minimise the environmental impact of textile manufacturing and guarantees both that production processes are clean and that the product is safe and healthy. Nice.
Cee Clear clear set
Clear bags are totally still having a moment and we’r here for it. This set by Cee Clear comes with a mini purse, purse, cosmetic case and tote bag for the gal that loves keeping it minimal and chic. Sure might have to think about what goes in there, but we say wear that tampon loud and proud!
She Lion Futurist Tote
For the gal looking for a leather look, this black triangular-embossed tote by She Lion is a nice alternative to your standard structured leather handbags. Not only is it incredibly handy with 4 large pouches, 7 card slots and an extra internal zipper, but the bag is slash-proof and really easy to clean.
Running Bare totes amazing bear tote
Running Bare make some incredible practical totes that not only look chic, but are made to last. This tote is made from 100% cotton drill for easy care and is a great go-to for workouts, weekends away, shopping runs, beach days & everything
Izoa Stella Tote bag
This tote is a super-chic dupe of the famous Dior canvas bag (and costs a fraction of the price). The scarf pattern gives it that extra edge, and it comes with a more structured shape for the girls out there that aren’t keen on a soft-edged holdall.
Ganni recycled tech fabric bag
Our splurge pick, this Ganni bag is not only incredibly fun bit it’s made from 100% recycled watering (win!) and you can buy a heap of matching accessories to go with it. We know it’s a little priced but it really is one of those bags you’ll use forever.
