Anytime I am faced with the dilemma of choosing just one option of any particular item-I often encounter this predicament when traveling-my instinct is to always go with the most classic, versatile choice. So if I was going to carry only one handbag all fall, I can say without hesitation that it would definitely be a tote!

While shoulder bags, lady bags, and oversized clutches are also very on-trend this season, a tote, which has always been my #1 arm candy of choice, is the most essential option to accommodate all of your belongings while you're on-the-go. (New moms take note: they are a fabulous alternative or addition to a diaper bag to stow all of your baby gear!)

Breaking down a few different styles, my top pick would be one that is solid leather, like 3.1 Phillip Lim's Pashili Satchel, Diane von Furstenberg's Drew Metallic Tote Bag or even my personally designed Zoe Leather Tote, which I am currently relying on to hold all of my necessities amidst the NYFW mayhem!

Other tote-ally chic options to love include any that incorporate the coveted color-block trend. DKNY shows us how it's done with their Color-Block Leather Tote, while Pour La Victoire's Bordeaux Medium Tote and ASOS Color-Block Shopper are equally gorgeous interpretations of the look. Finally, I could never forget to mention a few exotic choices à la Malene Birger's Reptile Nylon Tote and Nine West's Island House Large Shopper. What will you be toting around this fall? xoRZ
