You know how the saying goes… one can never have too many shoes. Or was it coats? Jeans? I forget. But while we’re here, we may as well throw bags onto the list. But not just any bags, we’re talking about leather TOTES. Whether it’s because you’re getting called back into the office (more on that divisive WFH debate here), looking for a weekender bag, or simply need something that will fit more than your keys and phone, you clicked on this story in search of the perfect tote, and I’m here to deliver!
I consider leather bags to be an investment piece, because they’re expected to last a long time and work with any outfit you wear. Much like your favorite jewelry, the right bag can completely change the look and feel of your outfit. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you want to give up an arm and a leg to purchase one. There are plenty of options under $200 as well as pricier ones, so you can decide how much you’re willing to spend on this ultimate accessory staple. Below, 20 of the best leather totes that’ll keep you organized—and looking v chic if I say so myself.

Cuyana’s totes are some of the best in the game, and just because this pebbled leather style looks sleek on the outside doesn’t mean it lacks any function on the inside. It also comes with a strap so you have multiple ways to wear it.

An olive-green style sans logo like this will have everyone asking where you got it from. It comes with a matching detachable wristlet, too!
this woven one

The rich tan hue on this woven style is simply gorgeous. It even has a tiny St. Christopher charm woven on the inside that symbolizes safe travels. How cute!

Shekudo has some fun statement footwear, and the same can be said about its bags. This name of this leather one says it all.

My first ever “investment” piece as a teen was a leather bag from Fossil, and the retailer still delivers after all these years. This one has a tri-colored stap, key accessory, and stylish seams.

Large Filippo Bag Olive
Ugh, tell me this isn’t the most sophisticated olive green color you’ve ever seen on a handbag? She’s the nonchalant tote you need on all your errands. If green isn’t your color, however, you can find this baby in other shades as well.
this cream one
Luka Tote Bag Creme
I know, I know, cream colored bags can be tricky when it comes to stains and discoloration. But when it’s this beautiful, does it really matter? I think not. This classic shape will never go out of style, so you know you’ll be getting a timeless piece with your purchase.
this textured one
I can already see this woven one styled with a beautiful beige trench coat and combat boots for the fall. Carry around all your essentials—notebook, water bottle, wallet, keys, lipstick, phone—and still look effortless.
this deep one

a little a lot of extra space in your bag, this piece should be your go-t0. You could definitely fit your laptop in there, and, hey, even your tiny dog if you’re both on the go.

Kate Spade is an undeniable go-to for tote bags; plus, the long strap on this burgundy design will sit nicely on your shoulders.

If you’re tired of the simple black and brown bags, then a piece with a print like this might be more up your alley.
