A tote bag is a workhorse. You can use it to carry your beach essentials, you can carry it to work and take it on your shopping sprees. You can choose a leather tote bag to carry your laptop to and from work and one made of canvas, jute or suede for off-duty days. For a defiant, grunge look, go for one with a cute, tongue-in-cheek quote on it. Ripped ones will have that hippie edge to them. Pair one with rugged jeans or hipster pants and you will be a poster girl for the era. Tumblr showcases a wide range of tote bags and ways to work them.
