The Most Stylish Tote Bags Under $100


Collage by W magazine.

The tote bag is an underappreciated accessory. Sure, it may not be the most glamorous accoutrement, but it’s definitely the most useful. Now that grocery shopping can be considered an “activity” and everyone is trying their best to extend picnic season well into the fall, we could all use a few extra options to add to the rotation. Here, our editors’ picks for the chicest, most practical tote bags—all of which come in under $100.

1
Ikea Frakta Bag, $0.79, ikea.com

I love this tote because of its size and shape and the short handles and shoulder straps. It’s also extremely well priced, durable, and collapses very small in case I need to throw it in a purse.

It works as a FASHUN moment, and also as an all-terrain bag.

L.L. Bean tote bag, $39.95, llbean.com

I’m obsessed with the L.L. Bean Hunter’s tote in solid army green and black. I use the small size as an everyday tote—it’s great for going to the grocery store and small enough to bring out to dinner. – Alexandra Ben-Gurion

MoMa Design Store pleated tote, $48, moma.org

This bag expands much larger than it looks. I use it for everything from carrying daily essentials to bringing home groceries. Comes in fun colors, too!

– Allia Alliata di Montereale

Yunzh denim shoulder Bag, $13.90, amazon.com

I love a denim bag. This is a great size, has a zipper and comes in many washes. It’s sturdy and can hold a ton!

– Allia Alliata di Montereale

Baggu canvas bag, $34, baggu.com

I have about 8 Baggu bags and this guy is by far my favorite. It’s large enough to fit your laptop and durable enough to take on a camping trip. The best part is that it is machine washable.

Maison Kitsune tote bag, $55, ssense.com

This is the perfect size for lugging all of my things around the city.

L.L. Bean tote bag, $29.95, llbean.com

I’ve written about the enduring appeal of the boat and tote before, and my love for them remains as strong as ever. Lately I’ve been using a pair of XL ones with red handles as my go-to grocery bags, but I also love the medium and large sizes for running quick errands or heading to a friend’s house with a bottle of wine in tow. They’re extraordinarily durable, classic, and always chic.

I feel very chic running my errands with this tote bag from Études.
