The Edit: 10 Beach Bags You’ll Want to Carry Every Day

Made-for-sand bags that make equally cute everyday totes.


If you’re lucky, come summertime, the purse you’ll carry most is your beach bag. So why do these sandy-day bags always play second fiddle to their leather and suede sisters? I say it’s time for an upgrade. These eight woven numbers are rugged enough for the shore (and large enough to stash beach-day essentials) but they’re stylish enough to replace your ol’ landlubber bags. While they might not be entirely appropriate for the workplace, they certainly play nice with weekend-wear and casual cocktail dresses. Plus: pom poms!
