The Perfect Beach Tote!

August is already here and for many of us, days at the beach this summer are numbered. By now, chances are you have your go-to swimming suits and oversized sun hats for this season. But if you are still on the hunt for the perfect beach tote, you’re not alone. There are so many things to consider when you look for THE ONE: size, style, color, price, versatility, texture, etc.

Here are some tips before you launch your mission:

  • invest in a good quality bag that will last a long time
  • shop online or at your favourite boutiques
  • versatility is key: look for a tote that you can carry during every season
  • while patterns are fun, opt for a solid color if you are looking for an all-season bag
  • choose a smooth texture if your tote will span all seasons
  • while designers have been leaning toward more compact, small bags in recent seasons, the beach tote is generally the exception – the bigger the better!
  • look for a stylish but functional bag – the perfect beach tote has a few interior pockets to store those sensible items and is made out of a waterproof material.

If you’ve already found THE ONE, please, do share! Looking forward to hearing from you!
