To the Sea Shore—and Beyond! 22 Beach Bags and Totes for Summer by Cortne Bonilla
Whatever the origin of the thrill, summer is undoubtedly the most fun season to shop for. With it comes the need to replenish our warm-weather necessities—the best beach bags and totes, beach towels, sunglasses, sun hats, and of course, a sophisticated style to toss all that into. The best beach bags are as functional as they are chic; in this case, bigger is better.
It’s safe to say that larger-than-life beach bags are lingering in the trend cycle for a while, as Chloe, Loewe, and Jacquemus featured a medley of options on the Spring 2023 runways. Top dog designers, from Bottega to Givenchy, are putting a modern spin on the raffia tote. Even contemporary brands are taking a dip into this playful pool—Cult Gaia’s rendition bridges the gap between artwork and utility, and Alaia’s version features a slouchy silhouette in an allover black mesh. They’re distinct, yet they all settle on one thing: ample space is essential. Sunscreen, water bottles, steamy beach reads, and a heap of snacks, wherever you’re headed, these canvas, raffia, and cotton-terry jacquard carryall beach bags are the ideal complement. Below, shop our edit of the best beach bags, totes, and weekenders for the season.
