Summers inspire us to travel light, even when it means dropping that heavy leather handbag, and trading it with lighter alternatives, like the tote. For the uninitiated, a tote is a carryall handbag, usually structured and rectangular in shape, with a wide top opening. And, versatile as it is, you can carry this stylish bag almost everywhere – right from the grocer’s, to a supermarket spree, and even to an evening gala.
A summer staple, the tote bag is usually made of canvas, jute, leather, plastic, nylon or processed natural fibers. Characteristically large and roomy, you can carry a ton of things in your tote – from beach clothes for a vacationer, to a diapers for a travelling mum, and even office documents for a working professional. So, if the tote’s still amiss in your wardrobe, get one to zing in to the season in style!
