  1. Shopping Guide: 12 Best Totes & Shoppers

    SUL leather bag

    A good tote bag is a solid investment purchase for your wardrobe. And right now, I’m a bit obsessed with all the lovely leather (and vegan) options around. I love the look of oversized totes in tan colours, with simple unstructured lines and minimal details. The bigger, the better, I reckon, and they’re immensely practical for lugging around extra stuff without resorting to your Woolies recyclable green bags.

    Antiatoms’ bag with handles looks just like a paper bag – in leather.

    My favourites? I love Sul Bag’s completely gorgeous oversized Alfama bag, which is handmade in Portugal, but I also can’t go past a good bargain, and the Marni leather tote reduced to £150 over on the Outnet is fantastic value. It will last forever, and you know it will only look better with age and use.

    But then I’ve always had a soft spot for my slouchy, super-practical BAGGU bags, and their basic tote rendered in wrinkled leather is a real timeless beauty.

      I just purchased 2 totes off Cuyana and they are beautifully made and worthy of your tote list. They also monogram if that’s your thing
