With humble roots as shopping
bags and diaper bags, totes are well-known for the amount of space they offer.
A tote bag can be your most indispensable accessory, but choosing the right one
for your lifestyle is the key to buying a bag you will carry every day instead of
just when it looks great with what you are wearing. Totes should be as big as
they have to be and no bigger, and so the right tote bag for you
depends on a number of factors, including its purpose and your lifestyle. Small A small tote bag is ideal for
carrying light essentials, such as a wallet, keys and a smartphone or tablet.
Small tote bags are not designed to carry much
weight, and so can be made of an array of materials from plastic to chain
mail to suit your personal style. Women who tend to travel light may find
everything they need in a small tote bag, while those with more to carry will
likely need a bigger bag. Medium The most common type of tote bag,
the medium-sized tote is a great choice for everyday carrying. Bringing a
relatively compact profile together with increased capacity, a medium tote bag
is perfect for carrying the essentials as well as other items such as books,
sweaters, sunglasses and bottles of water. Most medium sized tote bags are
made from leather or canvas as well as synthetic materials. Medium tote bags also have
reinforced bottoms for occasional carrying of heavier items as well as multiple
interior and exterior compartments for easier storage of smaller items. Large A large tote bag is ideal for the
woman who is
constantly on the move, featuring plenty of space for travel essentials and
other items. Large totes are the ultimate choice for women planning a full day
of adventure, and many large tote bags have dedicated spaces for laptops,
tablets and other office supplies, making a large tote a fun and attractive
substitute for a briefcase as well. Larger tote bags typically see
heavy-duty use, and so good material choices for large tote bags include canvas
and leather, durable materials that can stand up to the abuses of everyday
life. Large tote bags should also have a closure of some kind to keep the
contents secure. Beach totes are another type of
large bag designed for carrying items such as towels, clothes, sunscreen and
more. Beach totes are usually made from materials like straw to resist the
elements of the shore, but are not limited to the sand and surf as they make
just as big a statement on the street. Tote bags offer the opportunity to get the most out of accessorizing by
unifying form and function. Finding the right one for your specific lifestyle
could be one of the wisest investments you ever make.
