We know tote bags get a bad rep, but we unapologetically love them. Not the low quality free tote bags you get at events, these aren’t so good and should probably be stopped in the name of the planet, but the more sturdy and well made tote bags are always a yes from us. For example, the classic Marc Jacobs tote bag is a fashionable take on the iconic tote bag- so if you’re looking to elevate your classic black tote bag, this could be a good way to go. Shop preloved luxury tote bags, including the Marc Jacobs tote bag on Whering. Don’t get it twisted, yes we love the Marc Jacobs tote bag, but it’s not really a classic tote bag. Equally, there’s more to the tote bag than just the standard black tote bag with a random company name printed on it. Tote bags are an essential part of our main character routine. How else would we take our book to the coffee shop to buy an overpriced iced latte?

The tote bag is a reliable bag that can fit a lot of stuff in, including some new charity shop purchases, because obviously we’re not getting a plastic bag, duh. That’s the beauty of tote bags, you can roll them up and transport them super easily within a bigger bag, so you’ll never have to pay 5p for a bag again (it all adds up, the money and the plastic waste!). A classic black tote bag is something we’ve all got somewhere, it’s just a matter of finding it. Why not roll it up nice and small and leave it in the bag you use most, so whenever you go to the shop to grab a few bits (that turns into a half weekly shop) you’ve got a bag to put it all in. The tote bag will always have your back. If we still haven’t sold you on the tote bag lifestyle, maybe you’ll be swayed by the Marc Jacobs tote bag.
