Totes are one of the most beloved and recognizable handbag silhouettes in fashion, and for a good reason. An everyday tote is not only stylish and easy to wear, but also it can be incredibly functional when designed right. While other handbag silhouettes may come and go (think hobos, saddle bags, etc.), the tote remains a mainstay amongst nearly every single designer’s line-up.
A core shape that is a permanent fixture in fashion, totes are with us when we need them the most, lugging our daily necessities and getting us from place to place. They are one of the most usable silhouettes in one’s closet, but even still, the tote sometimes falls by the wayside, receiving a lot less love than its peers thanks to its minimal lines and basic shape.
The Anything-but-Basic, Everyday Tote
The trustiest item in our closets certainly doesn’t mean the least stylish, and Chloé has a hit with its fan-favorite Woody Tote. The beloved Woody is a spacious tote designed just for the Chloé Girl with their everyday needs in mind. It’s perfectly sized to carry the essentials and more, and this season, the Woody is reimagined in soft leather, oozing the classic Chloé feel with a stylish edge.
The Woody’s body is plain and simple, but its exaggerated straps add a bit of edge to the tote. On the leather version, which is crafted from smooth calfskin, the straps are monochromatic, offering a bit more of an understated logo look than its canvas counterpart. The leather version feels a bit dressier and more elevated, making this a luxurious daily carry. Its interior is spacious and functional, with one interior pocket and a light linen lining so that your belongings won’t get lost in the black hole of a dark lining.
The Woody is made complete with classic, clean lines and contrasting stitching. Sleek and stylish, the Woody is a bag we keep coming back to, and the leather version, offered in small and medium sizes, is ideal for the cooler months that will inevitably arrive.
