Meet one of the best totes of the Pre-Fall season: the Elizabeth and James Scott shopper, a neutral tote with some diagonal edge. You will be hard-pressed to find any tote better than this priced under $600. And you just might find you love this one more than the pricier variations out there. They softened up a strong geometric shape with luxe suede, always an important texture for fall and a particular must-have this year.
From the cute “E” logo charm dangling nonchalantly on the handle to the coordinating spare pouch to the discreet smattering of studs along the edges, effortless practicality has never been more precisely executed. You may be a little surprised to hear this, but here’s a fact: I really love everything Elizabeth and James for my daily life. At Neiman Marcus for $595.
Wear with: This tote goes with just about anything on the casual side, but I especially like styling it with a tomboyish military-inspired jacket. ATM Anthony Thomas Melillo’s slouchy and cinched Field jacket does the job. At Barneys New York for $440.
