There’s nothing like a good tote. The only problem is finding something that looks cute and can also store plenty of folders, a laptop, and all your other odds and ends. While it may be challenging to strike a balance between style and practicality, it’s not an impossible task. Here are six fall totes that are perfect for work.
1. Mansur Gavriel
Mansur Gavriel is known for its feminine bucket bag, which has kept fans on their toes for the past few years since they tend to sell out within days, if not hours, after each restock. However, bucket bags are not the only style they carry. This sturdy structured leather tote comes in its signature red lining and is cut from fine leather just like all the brand’s other products. As a bonus, it also comes with a detachable internal zipped pouch.
Kara’s Tie leather tote is cut from vegetable-tanned leather, unlike Mansur Gavriel. The vibrant red is the perfect pop of color to your neutral fall palette. We love the fun and flirty tie on the front, which acts as both a cut finish and a practical way to keep the otherwise open top shut during your daily commute. There’s also an internal pocket to stow away your keys so you won’t have to fumble for them.
3. Michael Kors
We love this simple and elegant MICHAEL by Michael Kors Jet Set textured-leather tote, which is not only perfect for work, but also as a carry-on for flying. Adorned with a subtle logo on the front, any wear and tear to the exterior is easily concealed by its elegant pebbled surface. The interior of the tote is divided into two compartments with multiple pockets to keep you organized.
4. Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton’s signature Neverfull drawstring tote, printed with the brand’s logo, is roomy and fit for the office. The bag also comes with a detachable zipped pouch in the same monogrammed print. This classic style also comes in several other prints, such as Damier Ebene canvas, Damier Azur Canvas, and Epi Leather. You can also customize the lining.
Ever since Alessandro Michele took the helm at Gucci, the brand has regained its former glory, especially with the younger consumer. Celebrate the reinvention with this reversible leather Turnaround tote. With the timeless GG printed on one side and a solid black calf leather on the other, it’s appropriate with any outfit this fall. The tote is even garnished with a detachable luggage tag for all your travel needs.
6. Saint Laurent
This Saint Laurent tote comes in both smooth and textured leather in a multitude of colors. Ranging from this pale pink to bright blue and black, there is a shade for every occasion. We love this everyday bag, which has plenty of storage space for whatever the day brings. Embellished with the signature hanging YSL charm and containing an internal zipped pouch for your wallet and keys, this is the purse for the career-minded woman on-the-go.
