Totes don’t have to be black and boring

 

I’ve included some black totes here because they’re so functional, but they’ve all got something a little interesting going on. Personally, I prefer totes that pop a little, even if they’re in neutral colors, like this excellent grey one with stripes from Clare V.

I also like the idea of carrying something summery, like this one from Antonello, all winter long.

This is Isabel Marant and it exceeds the GOACA price limit, but I am in love with the print on the strap.

Nothing all that unusual here, just a really good grey.

I love the color block business going on here.

Just a bright, vibrant red.

 

This is actually a baby bag, which just means it has a million convenient interior pockets, and I’m crazy for the quilting.

This costs more than it should but it is so damn cute in the denim.

The shape here is cool.

Remember always, ladies, that metallics are neutrals, and love this Baggu tote as I do.

The chain handle here is so chic but slightly un-functional, so it’s nice that it comes with a shoulder strap for convenience.

This croc-embossed option is so fancy-looking.

This isn’t the biggest tote of the bunch, but I do love the way it looks.

The slightly weird mustard-y hue on this canvas bag appeals.
