When summer shows up, the only thing we all gravitate toward when it comes to carryall is the jumbo tote bag. I don’t know why but it seems to be a great investment that fits all you need in the hot humid season, I think it’s probably because it’s a season we carry a lot more like a spare water bottle for when thirsty on the way to work, sunscreens for when there’s need for re-application, hats, towel, and spare slides for when on holiday, laptops, gym kits, spare jackets and umbrella for when the weather decides to go the other way e.t.c.
The SS’22 runways were filled with oversized tote bags, which is telling us the trend of the season, and not only are they trendy, but they’ve also become a summer wardrobe classic that keeps coming back with different updates.
Oversized totes can easily be styled with any of your favorite workwear pieces, the weaved basket-designed ones go well with any maxi dresses and flat leather slides on a sunny day out, they can also be styled with your favorite swimsuit when on the beach or site seeing on holiday, e.t.c.
The trending oversized tote bag right now is the one designed by YSL – Icare Tote Bag, many celebrities like Zoë Kravitz, Hailey Bieber, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have all been seen carrying this cult classic. Other good ones on the market are designed by Bottega Veneta Arco Tote bag, Stella McCartney Shoulder Tote, and Anya Hindmarch, to mention but a few.
Now, that being said, investing in a good luxury one for this season will be something to appreciate all season long but to be honest, not all of us can afford a big luxury brand, which is where the high street brands with affordable quality pieces is a go-to. I’m talking about the likes of Mango, Bershka, Zara, Boohoo, Missguided e.t.c. you’ll definitely find something to suit your need.
