With fall comes lots of layering… and inevitably taking the layers off when the weather isn’t as chilly as you expected. That, my friends, is where a tote bag comes in handy to stash knits, scarves, an extra pair of shoes—you name it. But when it actually does get cold, you’ll also need the extra room to throw in some mittens, beanies, and lip balms to combat chilly winds. In any case, a roomy tote bag is basically a must-have for the cold season ahead.
Below, I rounded up 31 totes in all sorts of shapes and a bevy of different price points, from wallet-friendly finds to true investment pieces. Let’s be real, if you currently have a pile of untouched tote bags you somehow got for free, why not buy one you’ll actually wear time and time again? I threw some trends in the mix like red hues (it’s really having a moment!), suede fabrics, quilted textures, and oversized shoppers. Fingers crossed you find a chic tote or two that speaks to you, though I get the feeling that it’s a done deal.
