Leather Tote Bags
Leather tote bags are a must-own in every woman's wardrobe. They're your mega-purse solution - giving you lots of room for your belongings and looking chic!
A leather tote bag will accommodate everything without breaking it down! And that's exactly
what we need if we want to squeeze all of our stuff in one place :-) It is the heavy-duty item for all of your daily purposes.
The spacious, large handheld, easy-to-carry and not least durable bag will carry heavy things such as books, beachwear and other everyday items.
Fashion tote bags can be made from canvas and other fabrics, but leather.. Oh yes, leather is so much more resilient and chic! It's truly made for us who likes high quality fashion items. Not to mention, versatile enough to wear with all of your outfits and color combos. And one of the best things about leather tote bags is that often the strong material is supple and soft to the touch.

How to Buy a Leather Tote Bag
If you're on a budget, go for faux leather bags
The drawback might be the feel as it's made of plastic to imitate real leather.
A good rule of thumb for the faux leather is, the more expensive, the better imitation - and which is very supple and soft to the touch, it's also lighter then genuine leather.
Complement your lifestyle and personal style
I personally think that getting your choice of tote handbag right is crucial to achieving a maximum style impact. Your handbag is your calling card - it needs to complement your personal style and not least your lifestyle.
So get the ones you know you need and cover your major daily activities, and not least define your personal style - in this way you won't have a pile of bags that you rarely wear.
If you spend most of your time at the office, get a tote bag for each of your jackets and coats. One simple and tailored for your classic overcoat and slightly hip one for that parka coat.
Dress your body figure
Like for example,
if you have a full-figure with rounded hips, a tiny bag with thin strap that falls down to that area
will only draw attention to that area and make your curves look bigger.
Secure the basics
If you haven't secured a couple of basic medium-scaled (smaller or bigger depending on your body size) leather tote bags - then do it now. Simple, well-designed bags in solid neutrals blend in with all of your outfits, so you really don't need to think twice when you leave the house.
Examples of versatile colors are black, white/cream and brown. And when I say simple and well-designed that means leaving out the fussy details like tassels, prints and other nick-nacks that might look outdated in a few months. However, timeless details that stand the test of time are various leather textures and simple-chic metal hardware, as well as some strap styles.
If you already have a couple of basic handbags and crave for the fun and trendy ones,
look for leather tote bags in other yummy colors such as purple, green, blue and red, which blend in with the Fall & Winter season. Solids are easier also easier to mix and match.
