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.
