Tote bags are having a moment right now — shop the 5 most timeless styles
There are a few timeless fashion staples that you’ll always reach for throughout the year. From a sleek pair of dress pants to a sleek leather bag, there are evergreen styles that you can always fall back on. Tote bags also fall into this category, with so many unisex styles now available at affordable prices.
Right now, tote bags are having a major moment in fashion, but unlike most trends, they’re also timeless. If you’re on the market for the perfect timeless tote bag, there are a few options that fit the bill and pair perfectly with anything in your closet.
Also, one of the biggest misconceptions about tote bags is that they’re super expensive. While there are some options that are definitely investments, a classic, high-quality tote can cost as little as $150 — and we’re talking high-quality leather!
For the leather lovers out there, Quince and Coach Outlet have buttery options that won’t break the bank. These two picks, specifically, enter luxury territory in their design and craftsmanship but somehow manage to still be affordable.
Also, we haven’t forgotten the travelers! If you’re looking for the perfect travel-friendly tote that has everything you need for racing through the airport or even one that converts into a backpack, we’ve got you covered with picks from travel accessory brands Monos and Dagne Dover.
Rothy's is one of those cult favorite fashion brands where the saying "if you know, you know" applies best. There's not a single product it produces that isn't thoughtfully designed, and that's mostly due to its ethos of machine-washable products — and this also extends to its best-selling Lightweight Mega Tote.
Available in 13 colors (the navy twill is my personal favorite), this unisex tote is extremely spacious and super durable. It holds anything from blankets and umbrellas to books and even groceries. Inside, you'll find an interior zip pocket and two key leashes, which work double duty as mechanisms to fold in the sides of the bag if needed.
Best of all, this bag is completely machine-washable, so if it gets scuffed or dirty, all you need to do is spot-clean the surface or simply toss it in the washing machine.
Quince is one of my favorite brands for getting premium, designer-quality goods for much less. It's what the brand's all about!
Its Italian leather shopper tote looks like it came straight out of a high-end luxury catalog. This workhorse carryall is timelessly chic and proves that premium leather doesn't have to break the bank. It's durable, easy to clean, has three slip pockets and has a center zipper divider that's roomy enough for a 13-inch laptop.
It also comes in six colors, including dark brown, black, cognac, navy and olive.
Monos luggage is among the most durable and well-engineered, even superior to brands like Away, in my opinion. So when the brand expanded its Metro collection to include this new vegan leather tote, I was ecstatic.
Designer to carry literally everything you need while running through the airport, catching your train or just out and about, this versatile tote bag both looks the part and performs practically, just as you need it to.
It has a secure zippered pocket for holding your passport, wallet and other valuables, has tech sleeve pockets and even has interior water bottle pockets tucked into each side. In addition to its main compartment, there are also two exterior pockets for storing additional easy-to-reach essentials and, best of all, it has a built-in trolley sleeve that fits securely around your luggage handle.
The Monos Metro Tote comes in four gorgeous neutral colors (including black) and tucks easily into the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you on planes or trains.
Gone are the days when designer bags cost you your rent check (and then some). This high-quality Coach Large Smith Tote is only $249 and feels much more expensive than it is.
Coach's premium quality leather has such a high reputation that many luxury goods enthusiasts say it's actually the best of any luxury designer brand. And that quality is reflected in this refined pebbled leather bag.
It has inside-zip and multifunction pockets, a snap closure, fabric lining, handles and an outside open pocket. Choose from two finishes: the gorgeous brown pictured above or a smooth army green hue.
If you're an avid commuter or want a tote that's a bit more casual and has three-in-one functionality, this new Dagne Dover staple is the one to buy. I own this bag and it's quickly become one of my practical favorites in my collection that I reach for often.
The hybrid bag functions as a standard tote, a carried crossbody or as a backpack using the straps that are tucked away in a dedicated pocket. The straps are so well concealed that there's no way of knowing they're there unless you unzip the pocket and physically take them out.
This bag also has a dedicated padded laptop pocket to keep your tech safe when stored overhead or under the seat. It comfortably fits up to a 16-inch laptop with water bottle storage, interior pockets and a key leash.
It’s an early summer’s day in July and Nicolas Ghesquière is seated in a garden room at the Ritz Paris – huge cream sofas, squishy cushions, a gentle breeze wafting through the orangerie. The season is poised at that last heady moment before the fashion cycle ends and the industry takes its customary break. The mood is end-of-school anticipatory – and Ghesquière is feeling good.

In a recent episode of "The Rich Dad Radio Show," financial educator and author Robert Kiyosaki expressed grave concerns about the United States’ financial health. "America is now bankrupt," he said. "And the question I want to answer today is how [come] America, at one time reportedly the richest country in the world, is now bankrupt?" While the U.S. hasn’t legally declared bankruptcy, Kiyosaki's point underscores the nation’s worsening debt crisis. As of Nov. 24, the U.S. national debt had rea
