17 Designer Tote Bags That Will Stand the Test of Time

Perhaps it’s a reaction to the micro-bag trend, but it seems as though everyone in the fashion industry has set their sights on a style that falls on the complete opposite side of the spectrum: tote bags. Be it for the practical reason of holding everything you might need for the day—notebooks, laptops, wallets, a smaller bag, the works—or simply for the want to hold something starkly different, these larger (and sometimes oversize) bags have made a comeback among fashion girls around the world.

While a carryall tote isn’t necessarily something we are reaching for now that we are all spending more time indoors, but when then the time comes, you will be grateful you took the time to properly scope out your options. And if you happen to be in the market for a stylish designer option, there are plenty to choose from.
