You can never own too many tote bags. 

This season, we celebrate tote bags as the coveted carry-all to own right now. Although the silhouette is known to be a staple accessory to every fashion lover, it’s never too late to invest in a luxurious design that can last a lifetime.

It’s hard not to love the style in the first place, especially when it comes in an array of sizes and silhouettes. Find out which tote bags have our vote for being both trendy and versatile additions to your summer wardrobe.

Chloé woody large printed canvas and leather-trimmed raffia tote

You can’t go wrong with a timeless raffia tote. This Chloé bag takes the number one spot in our books for its simplicity, from the leather-trimmed handle to the logo-printed canvas on the raffia. It works as a weekender bag too; we can’t wait to tote this dreamy bag to the beach once borders reopen, but for now, a brunch date with the girls will do just the trick too.

JW Anderson mini leather-trimmed woven raffia tote

Here’s another raffia tote worth mentioning. JW Anderson’s tote comes in a mini version that works as an everyday bag. If you look closely, you’ll see a checkerboard pattern on the raffia that adds a pop of colour to the design. Style this bag with a loose button-down shirt and flared jeans along with a pair of strappy sandals, and you’ll be good to go.
