With fall just a few weeks away, chances are you’ll soon be looking to trade in your cool straw handbag for a more seasonally appropriate leather bag. Of course, there are tons of gorgeous handbags out there, so narrowing down the options can feel a bit daunting. That’s why we’re here to help.

If you’re thinking we’re going to give you the rundown on the latest and greatest handbag trends to choose from, think again. Trends are great, but this fall we’re encouraging you to spend your money on the perfect everyday leather tote. Not only are there three great options that are shockingly affordable, but this is the bag every woman should own. It’s perfect for work, weekends and everything in between because it’s durable, spacious and timeless. Don’t think twice; you need one of these classic leather tote bags in your collection.

The Best Leather Totes:

1. Cuyana Classic Leather Tote ($175)


I already own this pebbled leather tote in two colors and every season I try to justify buying myself a new one. Yes, it's that amazing. I love that it's a bit softer and slouchier than some of the other options out there, but the leather is still super high quality. I also love that you can personalize this bag because, well, who doesn't love a monogram??


I'll also add that this bag is spacious enough to function as an overnight bag or even a weekend bag if you're a super efficient packer.

2. Everlane The Day Market Tote ($175)


There's a reason Angelina Jolie loves Everlane's handbags; they're so good. This particular tote is perfectly sized for everyday use and the leather is crazy durable, yet super refined and polished. I also love that you can load this tote down and never have to worry about the straps fraying. The color selection on this bag is top notch, so good luck choosing a favorite. They're all so gorgeous.


PS: Check out all the amazing reviews this bag has; there are over 1,100 happy customers!

3. Madewell The Transport Tote ($168)


Madewell's Transport Tote is nothing short of cult. It's so popular that they never stop making it; shoppers come back for it season after season. It's a seriously well-made tote that is the perfect balance of casual, yet also polished. You can really carry this bag anywhere. Bonus: you can get it monogrammed for free if you're a Madewell Insider.
