Best of the summer totes by Michael Michael Kors, DvF, Ted Baker…….updated

The tote is your all year round best friend.  It’s great for shopping, for taking on holiday, for travel anywhere.  Sling a great tote over your shoulder and, provided you don’t weigh it down too much, it’ll look chic all day.

A quick tip… carry a soft makeup purse in your bag, or two, into which you put all of your essentials as well as your makeup – charger – hair brush – pens etc.  Then when you’re switching bags you just have a couple of items to swap over rather than delving around in the bottom.

There’s never a bad time to invest in a new one, and particularly in summer, when your favourite black or dark coloured tote just doesn’t seem quite right, and now’s the best time to pick up a new tote in tan, beige, pale gold or, if you already have all of those, pink or purple.

Up in arms about the prices of your favourite designer tote?  No need any more, brands such as Michael Kors (surely the king of totes), DKNY, Ted Baker and others have got you covered at prices which make these quite irresistible.  Some of them have small pouches that are detachable and can work as evening clutches as well.

The main requirements of any tote are that you can sling it over your shoulder, it has any pockets you need, it won’t weigh you down and, most of all, a new one is pure therapy and will make you smile all day.
