As the season progresses, more women are seeking out extra large tote bags that fit everything from a workday wardrobe to weekend essentials. “When shopping for any designer tote, shape and size are the first things I take into consideration,” says fashion stylist and author Heather Newberger Layne. “It’s important that you know how you’re going to use your bag and what exactly you plan on carrying, from a laptop to toiletries to an additional pair of flip-flops for your weekend getaway.”

While many designer tote bags are crafted with durable luxury leather that will stand the test of time, other styles—like this rounded tote from Copenhagen cool-girl label Ganni—are made with lighter materials like woven raffia for a summery appeal. This minimal design features a pebbled texture, an understated logo stamp, and an adjustable strap for convertible wear. “I recommend this style for anyone who wants a timeless, versatile tote without the designer price tag,” says personal shopper and stylist Camille Guidry.

Another designer tote you can pair with your favorite designer dresses and tailored wool pants is this oversized option from Sezane, which was designed for those 12-hour days when you need to lug all the essentials. The stiff leather gives the oversized silhouette structure, while sliding handles make it easy to hold in the hand or over the shoulder. Add a classic broach or silk scarf around one of the handles for an elevated yet polished look that’s perfect for work or weekend.
