Bright summer days demand bold bags from our exciting selection of vibrant beach totes at PBteen. From retro tie-dye and geometric patterns to funky floral and camo prints, there are styles and color combos to suit all tastes, making these tote bags the perfect way to keep your style fresh while keeping your beach essentials close at hand.
Packing for a summer vacation requires planning and efficiency. You don’t want to drag around a massive suitcase, and you certainly don’t want to pay hefty baggage fees due to overweight luggage. At the same time, you want to ensure you have the right clothes and accessories for every occasion. This is where the humble tote bag excels, as it’s lightweight and easy to slip inside your suitcase. And if you choose carefully, it’s possible to use your tote at the beach, at the bar and everywhere in between. With one tote, you have a bag for every occasion and location, combining the convenience of a large storage capacity with chic designer style that stands out in the crowd.
The secret of the tote’s success is its simplicity. A classic, efficient design lends itself to a variety of looks and uses, and a lack of buckles and embellishments makes the bags easy to use, even when you’re loaded down with books, beach towels, sunglasses or spare sandals. Totes are wide and deep enough for storing a tablet, notepad or library book, and internal compartments with zippers are ideal for a phone, pens or a beauty products. They’re even large enough to carry a second zipper purse or clutch bag, which is a wise way to stay organized and ensure all of your most important possessions are easy to find in an instant. The large storage capacity and lightweight construction with comfortable handles make tote bags the obvious choice for a day at the beach; however, they’re just as suitable for a shopping trip at the mall, where the extra space is useful for stowing your purchases along with a few snacks and drinks. You can even take your tote to the gym, use it to carry your rolled up picnic blanket at the park or carry your textbooks when it’s time for school.
If your priority is the beach, you need something that’s big enough for holding your vacation essentials, but not so big that a relaxing stroll turns into an arduous journey; you want it to look casual when you’re in your bathing suit but stylish when you throw on your sarong and head back to the hotel to put on a touch of makeup. Plus, you can enjoy how well it withstands the rigors of sand, sun, saltwater and spilled sunscreen with a wipe-clean surface that resists stains. Consider printed totes with eye-catching colors and bold patterns. Show off your wild side with zebra print, or choose repeating geometric patterns that are anything but square. These vibrant bags have a fresh, cheerful vibe that’s ideal for chilling out at the coolest hot spots with friends on lazy summer days, but by carefully coordinating your clothing, your bag never has to leave your side. If you go for a chic and sophisticated option with a neutral color base, or something with metallic accents, you have a bag that makes it even easier to transition from a day by the pool to a night on the tiles.
Totes are simple and elegant, blending form and function to ensure you look good and feel great. With one bag, and some coordinated accessories, it’s possible to enjoy bright, breezy style with the convenience of having enough space to store everything you might need for the day ahead. Additionally, tote bags make fine gifts, especially when they’re adorned with personalized details such as a name or initials to make them special.
