Artist Totes Fashion Trend- The Best Summer Beach Bags

2017 Best Summer Tote Beach Bags



By: Lauryn M.

Here are the top tote beach bags for 2017 that can also be used for daily travels, auditions, gigs, events, and the like, from splurges to deals you cannot miss! If you can’t make it out for a beach day, you’ll at least look like you’re on your way when you strut around with these on your shoulder!

The best part about summer tote bags, for us artists, is that they are big enough to carry all our glorious garb around and if you so happen to catch a break from the craze, you can go straight to the beach or park. I am so inspired by all the raffia and woven bags out there which are the perfect materials for sandy beach days. These light-weight materials are perfect for those hot traveling-through-the-city days. Here is my list of the best summer beach bags out there right now!

Tulum by Mar-y-sol

This stellar Tulum Tote by Mar-y-sol totes more than just a beach towel and a good read. Its size and shape allows you to tote a large blanket, food, drinks, books, and so much more. Check out that “Tealrific” color too! It comes in 4 vibrant and fabulous colors. The leather straps add a nice, sophisticated touch as well. Definitely a winner for Beach days and picnics in the park. I am definitely toting this on my upcoming vacation to the Caribbean! $140
