I can’t help myself when it comes to a great bag, especially a school bag. Finding the right bag for school is sometimes difficult. Do I go with a backpack? Do I wear a purse? Should I just carry everything in my arms? The oversized tote is the best solution to this daily school-time dilemma. This bag will fit everything the average college student needs on a day to day basis while simultaneously being incredibly fashionable.
This Fashionista wears her oversized cross-body so well. The large brown bag holds all of her essentials and then some. The thick strap allows for the bag to be worn traditionally across the chest or as this Fashionista did, slung on one shoulder. She’s chosen a cognac color which complements the rest of her ensemble greatly. I also like that this bag has a weathered look, like it’s been around the block. Simple black skinny jeans, gray shirt and pointed-toe ballet flats match easily with her navy blue toggle jacket.
To emulate the style of this Fashionista with an oversized tote, I recommend one of these bags that are large and in charge. The Cath Kidston bag from ASOS has an adorable floral print for those who like a girly style. This bag from Forever 21 is one that I actually own myself and is a great all-purpose utility bag for school – it's simple style and large size makes it a great choice. This last bag from Urban Outfitters is closest in style to this Fashionista’s bag in that it is cross-body style, appears to be similar in size and has a vintage-y appeal.
