Just like you can often judge a man by his shoes or his tie, you can always judge a woman by her purse. Are you a handbag maiden or a clutch queen? A bucket gal or a messenger maven? Oftentimes, it’s always a good idea to have a few of each ready to go in your closet so that you can be whoever you want to be, on any given day!
One thing’s for sure, though: Every woman needs at least one or two high quality leather totes in her fashion arsenal. If there’s one look that’s virtually timeless and versatile enough to take you from the grocery store to the office to the nightclub all in one day, it’s the legendary tote bag. Here are three reasons why tote bags for women are a fine leather goods must-have, no matter the season.
- They’re durable.
Those leather belts you’ve had since you were a teenager? They’re still usable because leather is so gosh-darn durable. It can even look more chic after it’s been through a little bit of wear and tear. Leather totes will stand up to long commutes, heavy loads, and even long years of being forgotten at the back of your closet.
- They’re just right.
There are those evenings you’re getting ready to go out, and can’t decide whether you’re too overdressed or underdressed. A leather tote is the perfect “Goldilocks” bag: not too much of anything, but just right for practically everything. And they can even hold a spare change of shoes if you really need to change!
- They’re versatile.
Day to night, office to vacation, home hangs to date nights. Is there anywhere you can’t go with a good leather tote? Plus, unlike other larger-end bags, they don’t look awkward when they’re not packed with stuff, either. No more bottomless purse abyss.
Let’s face it: We all like to have a lot of different purses. But if you’re going to only have one purse, make it a tote. They’ll never go out of style, and they’ll always be able to carry whatever you need — and make you look good while you do it.
