I love a straw tote, but fall is coming. As we look towards the first fall out of homes since COVID started, I’ve been craving a new tote to go with me on all of my outings. Something that’s big enough to throw a computer, keys, mask, wallet, and whatever else I might need, while still looking stylish. Shop our edit of go-anywhere, fit-anything fall totes below.
I’m drawn to something a little more transitional, like this buttery leather structured tote from Cuyana in a creamy vanilla color on the smaller scale. Need something a little bigger? Their large structured tote is perfect for shlepping laptops and chargers around in a seriously stylish way. J.Crew’s Montauk tote in a rich saddle brown is truly what fall fashion dreams are made of. If you’re still craving something textural, this woven rattan tote in a darker shade can easily carry you through fall.
You know I can’t resist a monogram, and a gold-foil monogram on a leather tote is about as chic as it gets. Leatherology’s monogram comes in a variety of options, but they’re all beautiful – and I’m obsessed with the camel color of this bag. Williams-Sonoma’s Everyday Italian tote comes in a rich navy or a luxe pinky-tan. Or if you’d rather keep things slightly more summery, Paravel’s canvas tote in an autumnal striped palette is perfect for you.
You don’t have to go neutral, either. Patterns and prints are front and center this season, like this graphic black-and-white striped Claire Vivier bag. I’m obsessed with the checkerboard straps, which make this a masterclass in mixing. Madewell’s canvas tote comes with leopard print detailing, and you can’t go wrong with the classic L.L. Bean army tote.
