Whether you're looking for a tote for work or play, here are some important things to consider.
The material a tote bag is made of will affect its overall look as well as its durability and comfort. Because your tote bag will be doing a lot of work, choosing practical and high-quality materials is key.
Leather tote bags look luxurious and polished, making them a great option for work. They're durable and sturdy, and when cared for properly, can last a long time. However, their weight and poor resistance to water are definite disadvantages. Therefore, when shopping for leather, make sure the benefits outweigh the costs.
Nylon tote bags are not only durable, but can match a variety of looks ranging from sporty to work-appropriate. Flimsier nylon bags look more casual, while sturdy, high-quality nylon bags can look great with a suit and dress shoes. To take a nylon bag up a notch, look for one with leather details.
Canvas tote bags have a relaxed, casual look that's great for everyday use and weekend getaways. They can range from simple, foldable totes to sturdier versions with reinforced bottoms and removable straps. Canvas can be prone to wear and tear, but many companies make waxed canvas totes that are water-resistant and more durable.
Sometimes you need a bag that can protect your belongings from the elements. For extra protection, look for a nylon or canvas tote that has been treated to be water-repellant and resistant to stains. This way, the interior of the bag (and your things) will stay clean and dry.
Choosing a tote bag that matches your wardrobe will ensure that you can pair it with a variety of outfits and get the most use out of it. For the most versatility, choose a neutral color - black, brown, or gray - and a simple design.
If you're more daring with your fashion choices, a tote bag with unique design features or in a bright color can add some flair to your outfit.
A business tote bag needs to hold your laptop, work-related accessories, and paperwork. A casual tote may need to hold anything from groceries to an extra pair of shoes. Think about what you'll be carrying and choose storage accordingly.
It’s great being able to shove a bunch of things into your tote bag. But the more you stack, the more cluttered the bag becomes – and now you can’t find your keys. That’s why it’s important to consider the interior storage features. Selecting a fashionable tote bag without a sufficient number of pockets may lead to buyer’s remorse.
Some tote bags have pockets for specific items, like your passport, phone, and keys. Make a list of the items you normally carry to help you decide what kind of storage best suits your needs.
If you're using your tote for work, you may need to carry around a laptop or tablet. Without sufficient padding, your device could get scratched or damaged. To prevent this, look for a tote bag with a padded sleeve or pocket specifically designed for laptops. And make sure it's large enough to fit your device!
One final piece of advice is to make sure the tote bag can stand up and stay closed. You never know when you'll need to place your bag on the floor, and the last thing you want is for your nice bag to fall over, get dirty, and spill your things out. Look for a bag with a reinforced bottom or prongs underneath to keep it from tipping over.
Tote bags have a large opening up top, so to keep documents and personal belongings secure, make sure the bag can close. Totes that close with a snap can provide some protection while still remaining accessible. Totes with zippers are the most secure.
Whatever you need to carry, there's a bag out there for it. Check out more of our favorites, including business briefcases, laptop backpacks, and travel messenger bags.
