With warm weather fast approaching, we’re already scoping out options for a new summer bag. And this season’s “it” look is the woven vegan leather tote.
It’s as timeless as it is trendy, with a classic silhouette that’s the perfect finishing touch for just about any look. And while vegan leather is obviously friendlier to animals and your wallet than the real thing, the main reason it’s our fabric of choice for the summer is how much more forgiving it is around water. Read on for six of our favorite styles.
1. Mali + Lili Ray Convertible Tote, $74
We love any item that gives you multiple looks for the price of one, and this vegan leather tote from Mali + Lili is just the thing. Sling the thicker strap over your shoulder, or clip on the longer adjustable strap to wear it as a crossbody. It also comes with a smaller internal zipper pouch that works just as well for organizing all your gear inside the main tote as it does on its own. Clip on the adjustable strap for another crossbody bag option.
2. Queenoris Woven Tote, $69.99
Versatile neutral bags will always be great options, but why not try something new this summer? The bold forest green version of this woven tote will make you the main character in absolutely any setting. It’s big enough to use on a quick shopping trip or as a go-to daily bag, with enough space for all your usual stuff plus a tablet, book, umbrella and more. There’s also an inner clutch to hold the smaller items that tend to get lost in really roomy bags like this one!
3. Anthropologie Woven Faux Leather Tote, $120
This Anthropologie tote is woven with thicker strips of material than most similar bags, giving it a unique and totally covetable style. The zipper top also sets it apart from other totes and makes it great for travel and other times you need a bit of extra security. We love it in this pale pink color, which will look perfect paired with a breezy sundress and some strappy sandals. It also comes in cream, brown and beige — all just right for your new summer bag.
4. Urban Expressions Valencia Tote, $94.99 (Orig. $100)
If you’re looking for something that will take you all the way from summer into the next seasons, this classic brown woven tote is the way to go. It’s one of those incredibly versatile pieces that somehow looks just as natural packed with snacks and a change of clothes at an outdoor concert festival as it does carrying your laptop and files into the office. The snap closure on top keeps it super convenient while adding a little extra security for everything inside.
5. LMKIDS Reversible Woven Bag, $78.98
Curious about branching out into colored bags, but not quite ready to give up on the versatility of neutrals? Forget the debate — this reversible woven vegan leather bag gives you instant access to either option. The tote easily turns inside out, switching from deep blue to crisp white. Regardless of the hue you choose, the other tone will peek through on the strap and add a subtle bit of interest. The silhouette is similarly versatile, with the ability to work as either a standard tote or a bucket bag.
6. 606 Hobo Weave Tote Bag, $94
The slouchy hobo silhouette looks great in a ton of different styles, and woven vegan leather is no exception. This version from 606 is the sort of bag you’ll want to use day in and day out, with enough room for all your must-haves but small enough to be convenient. The tote comes with a removable inner pouch to keep your smaller stuff organized. It’s made of fabric so soft and buttery that you’d swear it’s actual leather. This soft yellow is our favorite tone for summer, but the other 10 neutrals and eye-catching colors are also lovely options.
