I always breathe a sigh of relief when the fashion pendulum swings away from impractical trends and toward more useful ones. That's precisely the case when it comes to tote bags, which have seemed to overtake mini bags in popularity lately—and for that I'm grateful. Call me a hoarder, but I simply can't fit everything I need into a tiny little bag. Where am I supposed to stash my full-size hand sanitizer, stuff for my dog, sunscreen, and bevy of lip balms?
Photographed in Rome today, Zendaya wore a beautiful Valentino example of the tote bag trend and I couldn't be more obsessed. She teamed it with a pair of clogs and a sleek and simple gray wool coat by Loewe. So chic. Scroll down to shop my favorite tote bags on the market right now.
