Summertime means frequent trips to the beach and pool, so you’ll need a bag that’s as fashionable as it is functional to carry all the sunscreen, towels, coverups, water bottles and hats you need to bring along with you. If you’re beach bound, consider one of these bags that are sure to bring as much joy as a day at the beach.
The Boho Tote
Loewe’s medium leather-trimmed woven raffia tote taps into the more bohemian side of beach life and yet still manages to bring a hint of class to your sandy days. Perhaps it’s the leather trim. Slip this one on with your Birkenstocks, gauze coverup and you’re ready for a day at the local beach or for a remote trip where the sand and sea are beautiful and postcard perfect.
The Girly Tote
What do girls love more than sunny days at the beach? Glittery totes. This Kendra tote from Dolce & Gabbana with its natural straw paired with glittery striped handles is the perfect accessory to any summer day. Toss in your beach essentials and prepare to pose along the shore.
The Multi-Tasking Tote
You need a tote for the beach. You need a bag for after. The Gucci Marmont woven shoulder bag is the perfect blend of both. Pack it for the beach, then slip into your cover-up that doubles as a dress after the sunset and place this bag upon your shoulder to double as a purse. If only everything in life was this transitional.
The Artsy Tote
If you’re the kind who prefers a beach bag that makes a statement long before you ever step foot in the sand, consider Alice and Olivia’s X Carla Krandendonk Missy tote. The patchwork pattern of this designer x artist collab is a bold beach option. Plus, it’s big enough to fit everything you need.
The Classic Tote
Leave it to Burberry to take a classic tote and make it a beach basic. This cotton canvas belt bag is inspired by the brand’s classic trench and is big enough to bring all your pool and seashore staples, along with whatever else you’ll need to for the day. Plus, the detachable zip pouch is perfect for the little things. We think this one will go well beyond beach days, too.
