Trend Alert: Fall into Totes
August 2, 2006
Weâ€™ve been lugging fun carry-alls all summer â€“ in everything from canvas to terry to straw â€“ and loving every minute. How else can you look chic and still go from office to happy hour AND carry everything you need?
Star spotting is already showing that totes are going strong for fall fashion. Look for lots of leather, metallics and zippered compartments. Both Chloe and Chanel are doing a tote with a horizontal zippered compartment around the bottom. Marc Jacobs snaps his front flaps. Finding a do-all tote is definitely a fall trend to follow. And with the range of styles, youâ€™ll have an easy time finding one that fits your budget and wardrobe.
