When it comes to picking out the perfect summer tote, it’s important to look for something that can double as a bag for both work and play.
It’s all about versatility. Something clean and simple enough for the office but not too fancy to sit in the sand—you know, beach appropriate without screaming “beach,” so you can carry around your lunch alongside your sunblock.
Whether you’re ditching the office early on a summer Friday to hit the beach, or simply looking for just one carryall to bring you from the work week into the weekend, we rounded up 13 of the cutest totes.
