If a tote can’t fit a laptop, I refuse to see the point of it existing, so I’ve only included ones that are on the bigger side here. This croc-embossed one is especially sophisticated.
A cool quilted tote from MZ Wallace, who I know a lot of you are fans of.
Everlane’s Day Market Tote is just a good classic bag at a decent price.
This wool tote from Lauren Manoogian is so damn chic.
This one from outdoorsy brand Fjallraven converts into a backpack, which is nifty.
I like the safety orange carabiner attachment here for your keys and such, and the contrasting straps as well.
Clare V’s Simple Tote is just fantastic in navy with black stripes.
I am crazy for this woven leather number—it’s a little bohemian, but still polished.
And how cool is this pleated leather tote from Mansur Gavriel?
This metallic nylon tote is well-priced and even kind of edgy, in a Missy Elliott kind of a way.
I really dig the striped strap on this zipper tote: so sportif.
Here’s a sturdy and tomboyish canvas tote that’d be good for travel.
The exterior pocket here is actually a pouch that is attached to the bag magnetically.
This denim tote from Baggu is so super-sized that you could fit a weekend’s worth of stuff in it.
And here’s another one that would be good for travel—due to the proliferation of interior pockets—from Tumi.
I still really want a Longchamp bag, and this one’s a pretty ideal size for lugging around all my stuff.
I usually prefer a tote that’s narrower than it is wide, but the wideness of this one is what makes it appealing.
Here’s a nice solid vegan leather option.
I really like how narrow this one from Cos is.
This bag is waterproof, which is cool, and it comes in a few good neutral hues.
And finally: this army green bag from Andi just looks super-versatile.
