The “it” bag for 2013? The W accessories department vote is for the tote. If you are running, as we often do, from an early morning fitness class, to the office, and back out again to appointments and events all over town, no bag keeps your act together better. Here, some of our collective favorites.


“You can’t go wrong with Celine, and this particular one is the most perfect shade of red.”—Claudia Mata


“I love the sportiness of this black and white graphic Reed Krakoff tote.”—Nora Milch


“The ultimate classic—you can bet this Balenciaga tote will never go out of style.”—Claudia Mata


“This textured, mostly yellow version by Marc Jacobs adds some color to my typically dark winter wardrobe.”—Nora Milch


“I loved the prints from Burberry’s men’s collection this season—the floating graphics on this olive bag in particular.”—William Kahn


“The easy, slouchiness of this Dior tote makes it one of my favorites, and the color-blocked sides add a sporty element that wouldn’t look out of place at the gym.”—William Kahn


“With a price this great, you can get one in every color!”—Claudia Mata
