See-Worthy Totes of the Season

By: Kate Martel

This summer, satchels are all suited up for the shore: beachy, breezy and looking a lot like something that belongs on a boat. When it comes time to search far and wide for the perfect handbag to haul in the heat—versatility is key. This season we’re loving bags that are effortlessly stylish and easily transition from the beach to lunch to the kids’ soccer game. Here are some of the delightful designs we want to sail away with this summer.

Straw Bags
A straw tote is the perfect purse for the glamour girl on the go. Not only is it land and sea appropriate, but it’s also a piece that you can find at any price point—though its timeless look and durable structure make it one bag worth investing in. A truly classic tote looks terrific in basic raffia or splashed in chic metallic or bold hues. Designers like Coach added a whimsical design to an otherwise ordinary tote (see splurge on the left) to help brighten up the beach. This classic carryall is staying true to style for yet another season.

Nautical Facets
Whether it’s a rope handle, anchor or bold stripes—marine motif makes for one of the hottest handbags of the season. This fun-in-the-sun style is perfect for everyday use no matter where you’re sailing off to. Most stores carry affordable and fashionable options like Forever21 for example, so this is one trend you don’t have to skip this summer.

Clear Plastic
Talk about pretty and practical—it’s easy to see why this tote is a terrific option for the busy woman who’s always on the go. Not only can you find everything you need in a snap, but clear plastic totes also make for the easiest cleanup ever. They are the perfect accessory for the beach, shopping in town or spending a day with the kids. The Marcer Clear Logo Bag by Marc by Marc Jacobs (on the left) is a great example of why this style is clearly a winner in our hearts!
