Tote around these luxe bags for years to come.

Whether you work from the office, have a kid or simply carry a boatload of stuff with you at all times, a tote bag is a must-have. These roomy bags can often hold a laptop, your Joe & the Juice Tunacado and so much more. But there are so many I-T G-I-R-L-worthy options to choose from that you might not even know where to start. If you use this classic style of bag often, we say it's high time to invest in a designer version.

There are tote bags that look chic for a formal work meeting and ones that you simply need for your next girl's trip to the beach, like the Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Logo Crochet Tote. Find an option that works for your life and style ahead from Chloe, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and more designer brands. There are options in leather, vegan leather, linen and more — whatever fits your mood board.

We've gathered up the best designer tote bags you'll carry everywhere from work to vacay. All of them are certified splurge-worthy -- meticulously crafted and timeless enough that you'll never even think about retiring them. Some are currently trending (think BIG logos) while others are giving quiet luxury with subtle stamps and designs. No matter what bag you choose, the tote shape and profile is always a classic, so you'll never have to worry about any of these picks going out of style.
