The warranted demonization of the reusable plastic bag has turned the tote into a fail-safe choice for transporting essentials at your side and looking good while doing it. It’s not just low-cost shoppers being touted, either. The high fashion world has embraced the tote, with Jil Sander and Marni among those offering luxe iterations. If you’re in need of a new or additional one, we’ve picked out some of the best tote bags this season, for pretty much all budgets.
On the more wallet-friendly side of things, highlights include a sidepiece by Patagonia, sporting a retro-feel graphic, for under $30. From an outdoor stalwart to a sportswear giant — the Nike Heritage option is spacious and is topped off nicely with pin-style Swoosh-honoring graphics. Mid-range picks include a tote from the recent A.P.C. x Carhartt collab, in indigo denim.
If you consider the tote worthy of real investment, then you may be persuaded to part with more than $600 for Jil Sander’s take. Oversized and bearing the Jil logo, this was one of 2019’s most memorable accessories. A serious shopper for serious shoppers.
