Whether you’re heading to a local beach or jet-setting somewhere exciting, investing in a new designer tote bag is always a good idea. You can, of course, lug around that tried-and-true farmer’s market canvas bag that has been by your side (or on your shoulder) for the past 10 years, but we’re giving you permission to upgrade your carryall for a very special occasion: summer.
That’s right: this sunny season is reason enough to reward yourself for enduring less-than-desirable weather for the past many months, as we’ve all been itching to go outside and play. A roomy, statement tote bag will be your number one roll dog on these adventures, as it’s large enough to carry all of your essentials and cool enough to wear with pride. Just be prepared for constant compliments.

From Kylie’s striped Miu Miu to Shay Mitchell’s woven Prada to the asymmetrical favorite that Katie Holmes can’t get enough of, these are the best designer tote bags to invest in this season — all roomy enough to throw in your favorite toiletry bags, summer beauty essentials and an extra pair of flip-flops. Bonus: since tote bags are made of more accessible fabrics, so are their prices, which means you’ll be able to get your hands on a designer bag without the designer dollar signs.
