The itty-bitty bag is no longer just a trend. Between the phenomenon that was the Jacquemus micro bag (which hardly fits a penny inside!) and the street style regulars toting Marine Serre spheres, it seems “less is more” is everyone’s m.o. But sometimes, you just need a bag that actually fits your phone—and a laptop, some gym clothes, and a water bottle, too. In those moments, consider a bag on the complete opposite end of the spectrum: an endlessly roomy oversize tote.
You want one that still makes an elegant statement, of course. Consider Jil Sander’s sculptural cobalt tote for a dose of color, or Clare V’s soft suede tote, which is large enough to double as a weekender. If you’re in the mood for an eye-catching print, Comme des Gar?ons Shirt’s tote even has a surprising Star Wars motif. Below, shop our 12 favorite oversize totes to invest in this spring. Imagine how much time you’ll save in the morning when you aren’t trying to cram all of your necessities into a palm-size purse!
