Can you feel it? Can you hear it? Perhaps you can smell it? The seasons have changed. Spring is here, summer is on its way and you need to get with the program! The winter chill has finally left and yet you are still lugging that heavy, black leather bag to and from work/uni. But don’t worry, we’ve done the hard work all for you. Here are seven, sexy, spring summer tote bags that fit everything and get you from the office, to the beach and back again before your boss even blinks! Get that salt in your hair, the sun on your back and one of these totes on your shoulder.
Shine bright with this one-of-a-kind, genuine cowhide tote in Rose Gold. The classic tote is given a metallic makeover with rose gold, foil leather. Made for those who love to make a statement.
Let’s be honest, our bags go through a lot. They carry our laptops, folders, uni books, work papers, water bottles and left over pasta lunches. They need to be durable and reliable…welcome, Kate Spade’s Cedar Street tote. Constructed from sturdy, saffiano leather, with gold-tone hardware and petite feet to protect the base, this bag is made for a stylish, daily commute. But don’t stick to the usual black or brown, live on the edge with clock tower – a perfect pale colour for the long, hot summer ahead.
This Canvas Artist bag should really be renamed the Dream Tote. Why? Because Jasmin Sokrian has combined 2 fantasies and printed them on a tote – speaking fluent French and living in LA. Ahhh if only! This large tote in weighted, cotton canvas features 6 back pockets and the signature print on the front – “Je Pars Habiter A Los Angeles” or “I am going to live in Los Angeles.”
Show me your money!! And your book and phone and sunscreen and sarong! This vinyl tote is totally clear and totally cool. Contrasted by a white shoulder strap and binding, with “WILDFOX” written in white along the bottom, everyone can check out your style as you swagger past in your bikini. This transparent tote has us heading to the beach!
An ultra roomy tote, the Marine Grand is the ultimate warm weather companion. With sturdy rope handles and made of durable, cotton canvas this stylish tote is ideal for carrying towels, picnic blankets and bottles of rosé! The Marine Grand comes plain or printed with the Clare Vivier classic striping or double dots.
We all know Hunter for their practical and stylish gumboots. They are the favoured footwear of festivalgoers like Kate Moss, so of course they make the tote to end all totes. You can throw everything into this soft, suede bag that features a neon screenprint – heels and a change of clothes. There’s no wonder Hunter classifies it as a weekender bag…you could probably crawl right in and sleep inside too!
Straight off the runway of Phillip Lim's Fall 2014 collection, this leather tote bag sends a clear message with catchy raised lettering, “TOTES AMAZE”. This cut out handle tote is worth racking up the credit card for! Embossed lettering details the front and back panels, balancing out a structured, minimalist silhouette. Get it in nude. Get it now.
