In case you hadn't noticed, the days of "paper or plastic?" are long gone. And that means that the tote is steadily becoming an essential for the working girl on the go. A great carryall can help you transition from one summer hot spot to the next…not to mention accommodate and disguise any purchases along the way. Whether your busy day requires carrying documents and makeup or school supplies and a beach towel, a cross-body won't always cut it and an armful of plastic bags are never a good look.
Luckily, there is no shortage of cute sacks for every occasion and budget (with options from Mulberry to Forever 21 topping our list of go-tos). And in typical R29 fashion, to help you weed out your own purse pick, we've narrowed the offerings to 15 of the cutest totes around. Plus, with a variety of weekend getaways on the horizon, you've got to snatch up your favorite summer-Friday staple before they're all sold out (and by that we mean: before we've bought them all up!).
