You can't go wrong with a perfect tote bag. You know, the one that literally will hold your whole life? One that's also durable, basic, and can go with every outfit. Every girl and guy needs one (or five). When shopping for the perfect carryall, there are a couple of things you should be looking for, especially, if you're getting a tote bag you plan to use for a long time. Fabric: Is it durable enough to last a long time? Straps: Are they thick enough to carry a heavy amount of weight and are they comfortable on your shoulders? And last, but not least. Color: Do you want black or something bright or, even, something with a pattern? With all these in mind, we've narrowed down our favorite go-to brands for tote bags to help you make this important decision. The gallery awaits you.
