Fashion and function in one!

An everyday bag should fulfill two functions. First, it should go with virtually any OOTD: Since accessories can make or break an outfit, you should always go for a well-chosen bag to immediately elevate your look. Second, the bag should be spacious enough to hold all of your daily essentials and miscellaneous belongings. We're talking about your chargers, heavy powerbanks, makeup kits, sanitizing paraphernalia, and books, among others. It's an absolute must to have a go-to bag that you won't think twice about grabbing before you head out the door.

Needless to say, leather tote bags hit all these marks. In addition to being durable, leather also looks leagues more polished than canvas, since the latter can yellow and grow dirty over time. So, in case you're on the lookout for another investment-worthy buy, check out these cool, minimalist-friendly leather tote bags below!
