1 / 3

Nautical navy

A classic pattern that always coordinates (stripes are a neutral after all), this tote is also a top pick because it's ultra lightweight so you can load it up with all of life's essentials and then some. Bonus: The cushy neoprene-type fabric offers protection for tablets and devices. Gap, $55.

Pattern play

A tawny diamond print takes the edge off an all white bag while still maintaining a fresh look. This one also earns points with its full top zipper for security, multiple internal pockets to keep you organized and a wide base that holds plently and can be set down with ease. Lacoste, $200.

Red hot

A sophisticated boxy shape gets a major update thanks to glossy red croc-embossed leather. Fashionable outside and functional inside, it boasts a roomy zip compartment and numerous pockets. And, BTW, it comes with a cross body strap should you need to go hands-free. Michael, Michael Kors, $400.
