Women’s tote bags are a wardrobe staple. It doesn’t matter what type of woman. Crunchy, homeschooled mom? City career woman? Your handbag collection isn’t complete without a good tote bag. Typically featuring long, thick straps that fit over the shoulder or sturdy top handles, these bags are roomy and the perfect on-the-go option for your everyday needs.
These bags can hold your farmer’s market haul, laptop and lunch, diapers and wipes, pretty much anything but the kitchen sink. But a good tote bag can be expensive. These bags are best viewed as a good investment with longer lasting power than most of your other handbags. A stylish shoulder bag will not only make you feel like a boss, but it’ll present new motivation to get back to the rhythm of those 6 a.m. wake-up calls.
