Best Bet: Baggu Basic Suede Tote

Tote bags, especially those of the free variety, are a summertime essential. They’re perfect for carrying farmer’s market finds, beach necessities, or even the occasional six-pack. This version from Baggu is a far cry from your standard canvas freebie with its plush suede exterior, making it polished enough to go from workday to the weekend. A slim zipper pouch on the interior will keep your small items within grasp while the rich navy hue will transition seamlessly into the fall.
