The MyBag Guide to the Tote Bag

Potentially the most hard-working item in your wardrobe, too long has the tote bag been forgotten about. Here at MyBag we’d like to toast the bag that sees us though our day, the bag that has carried everything from school books to gym kits. Yes, the tote is that go to piece that needs no thought, something that goes with every outfit. But how well do you know your totes?

Enter, The MyBag Guide to the Tote Bag.


The Best Friend

Meet your best friend. The bag that takes you everywhere. Filled with old receipts and empty packets of chewing gum, this is the bag that fits your phone, wallet, keys, make up bag, laptop, diary, and even an extra pair of shoes for those days when you (mistakenly) attempt a heel.

Look for quality over quantity with this. One good bag could last you a lifetime, so make it perfect. Something simple, elegant, sophisticated, in one word – timeless.

The Shopper

It’s Saturday, you’re heading into town, ready for a day of shopping and lunch – what do you take? The shopper tote is the cool younger sister of your everyday tote. Slouchier, sleeker and a touch more playful, this is the bag that will take you from lunch to a weekend away whilst still managing to fit your sneaky MyBag order inside.

For Ladies who Lunch

Do you want something a bit more luxe, something that oozes class? Step your game up and try out a luxury tote with all the benefits of your everyday tote but just a touch more sass. Fake it til you make it, this is that bag that will look great on one arm whilst you drain your mimosa with the other.

The Mini

Not ready to leave your mini bag behind and venture forward with an oversized tote? Never fear, ease in with a mini tote – the perfect in-between. Generally slightly more structured, imagine shrinking your favourite bag into a perfectly miniature size.


The Statement Maker

If you are a girl who loves to make a statement, then let your bag do the talking. Statement bags have always been popular but take your look to the next level with something bold. Aspinal’s Gothic Romance tote is currently on our wish list, but Michael Michael Kors’ 70s pattern and colour blocking Mercer totes are sure to get you noticed.

A fan of maximalist fashion and all things fluffy, you can find me layering prints or looking for new earrings. A disco queen at heart, if I'm not dancing around the house to 70s soul, I'm counting my flares.
