Want to know this year’s It Bag? You’ve come to the right place, because we’ve found it. Straw bags are taking off in 2019, but summer is the ideal time to finally buy one for ourselves and show it off as often as we can. If we’re going to show it off, though, we need to make sure it’s worth showing off!
The Lauren Ralph Lauren Tolton Crochet Straw Tote is so perfect, we want to show it off on national television, but for now, a heavily hashtagged post on Instagram will have to do. No filter necessary! This bag is a pure beauty and so on trend it’s insane. Plus, it’s Ralph Lauren. And that 40% off sale price! Enough said!
This large tote is killing it when it comes to reviews. Right now, 100% of reviewers recommend it! That’s rare, so we had to see what shoppers were saying. One called it their “go-to bag all summer” while another complimented it on its “beachy yet sophisticated vibe,” labeling it as “elevated.” Many commented on its “amazing” quality, noting how it’s “very durable” and can fit so much inside. Because this tote is “perfect for any occasion,” multiple shoppers also listed out the places they take it, including to the beach, to work, out for errands and even on dates!
This bag is constructed of tightly-crocheted straw and is slightly wider than it is tall. It has two leather-look top handles that are short enough to be carried in our hand, but long enough that we can also rest them comfortably on our shoulder. These straps continue down the height of the entire bag, and off one of them we’ll see Ralph Lauren’s signature keyring hanging in goldtone hardware!
We’ll also notice a mini logo tag on the front of this bag toward the top, matching the material of the straps with the designer name written in capital gold letters to match the hardware!
This bag has a snap closure, unlike many totes that have no closure at all. The bonus points are seriously racking up. Possibly an even better surprise is that the inside of this bag is lined! The straw look is very adorable, but it’s much more comfortable to reach into a bag that’s smooth, so we love this detail. The fabric is easy to clean, too, according to shoppers!
Also inside this Tolton tote, we’ll see the extra-spacious main compartment, along with a zip pocket and two slip pockets! This main compartment is so roomy, we can fit a laptop, a pair of flats, a makeup bag, an umbrella, a water bottle, our wallet, phone, glasses case, keys and even more inside! All at once!
This bag is available in two versions: Black/Gold, which is a solid black with golden hardware, and Natural/Navy Stripe/Gold, which features two sets of super wide, contrasting horizontal stripes, also with golden hardware. Both bags are included in this 40% sale, bringing them both under $100!
Which version is calling your name? It’s okay if it’s both. We’re totally in the same boat! Luckily, we know we’ll be equally as happy (and stylish) with either!
