Carry-All Bags for Work, School, or Daily Carry
I love a large, oversized purse. Whether it’s a tote-bag style or more of a hobo bag, great carry-all bags allow you to keep everything you need with you within reach. Large bags are great for day-to-day, but they’re especially useful for work, school, and traveling. Whether its a spare pair of flats or your on-the-go makeup bag, it’ll all be ready whenever you need it.
Great Carry-All Bags
The Daily Carry
The GiGi New York Tori Tote is far and away my favorite, which is why I’m listing it first here. I have an olive green pebble grain version of this tote from a few years ago. The bag is a bit expensive at $375, so I was a little resistant to splurging on the bag at first. However, I have used my Tori Tote so often that I am confident I have gotten my money’s worth. I can comfortably carry flats, a large hydro flask, snacks, my on-the-go makeup bag, my iPad (and/or a book), chargers, and a sweater with this bag.
A Great Zip Top
I’m a huge fan of the Madewell Transport Tote. Madewell generally has a few versions of this bag available at a time, from solid colors to variations in fabrics. I personally own two — a pretty plum bag and a deep forest green option — and use them quite a bit.
If you’re looking for a great carry-all bag that securely closes at the top, this pictured option is the way to go. This Madewell bag will keep all your necessities safe and sound all day.
Pick up the Madewell Zip Top Transport Tote from Nordstrom — it’s available in this black and brown option, as well as a pretty saddle color.
Sleek Metal Detailing
If you’re looking for a solid color option that still has some unique styling, this Street Level Tote may be a great choice. Featuring solid black with a delicate metal chain, this is a seriously oversized option (20 inches wide and 14 inches deep!) that would be great for work or travel.
An Under $50 Carry-All
I love this textured Topshop Mace Shoulder Tote Bag. It features a two-tone texture in a rich camel color, plus pretty little metal details. The color is great for a daily-carry and would look great for work or casual. At just $45, it’s easier on the wallet while still featuring some fancy detailing.
