On Our Radar: Beach Totes

July 29, 2011
July is coming to a close and for many of us, days at the beach this summer are numbered. I already have my go-to suits and oversized sun hats for this summer, but I’m still on the hunt for the perfect beach tote. While designers (and by default, editors) have been gravitating toward more compact, small bags in recent seasons, the beach tote is generally the exception. Sunscreen, towels, brush, summer reads, sarong—they all have to fit in there. Above, a few of my top picks for toting to Montauk this weekend.

Clockwise from top left, above: Missoni Lipki tote, $315, available at; Newbark weekend woven canvas and leather tote, $950, available at; Matador Direct Gang Gang Dance tote, $25, available at; Club Monaco tote, $49, for store locations; eBay x CFDA “You Can’t Fake Fashion” tote, $35, available at
