LeSportsac Shore Beach Tote

Casual Nylon Patterned Day Bag

LeSportsac Shore Beach Tote | Casual Nylon Patterned Day Bag With its bold summery print, this LeSportsac Tote is made for fun in the sun. I love the Beach Hopping pattern, which features inflatable balls, sunscreen, boomboxes, buckets and spades, and other summer fun essentials. The print makes the durable but boring nylon material seem much more enticing. I'm not sure about the black logo piping, as it doesn't quite seem to gel with the bea…

The canvas side features the bold Live for Love slogan emblazoned across the gentle pink colored front.

Speedo Deluxe Mesh Equipment Bag

Practical Ventilated Beach Backpack

Speedo Deluxe Mesh Equipment Bag | Practical Ventilated Beach Backpack Speedo helps us carry our beach essentials to the shore with a minimum of fuss with this Deluxe Mesh Equipment. The label's always been about getting the job done rather than looking good, so it should be no surprise that functionality comes first here. It has large mesh panels which help our soggy swimwear dry, even while it's stashed away. These sections are complemented by tough d…

Vera Bradley Ditty Bag

Quilted Cotton Drawstring Beach Tote

Vera Bradley Ditty Bag | Quilted Cotton Drawstring Beach Tote Vera Bradley's taken her trademark style to the beach with this convenient Ditty bag. The Ditty is a great grab and go handbag, with its user-friendly drawstring pull closure and casual cotton finish. I haven't always appreciated Vera Bradley's homely prints, but this red Deco Daisy pattern is bold enough for the beach. Some of the materials seem a bit dated, particularly the old-…

Tommy Hilfiger Beach Tote

Large Navy Monogrammed Logo Canvas Bag with Change Purse

Tommy Hilfiger Beach Tote | Large Navy Monogrammed Logo Canvas Bag with Change Purse With its bold logo print, there's no mistaking that this beach tote is a Tommy Hilfiger original. Thankfully though, this canvas bag has more than its designer pedigree on its side. Canvas isn't the most luxurious material, but it makes a lot of sense in a beach bag. The fabric is tough and made to withstand all sorts of conditions, including salty sea air and unexpected summer shower…

Oversized Brown Burlap Printed Handbag

Billabong Day Tripper Beach Bag | Oversized Brown Burlap Printed Handbag Whether you're visiting the beach for a day or enjoying an extended tropical vacation, Billabong has you covered with this Day Tripper beach bag. This is a very rustic design from Billabong, one which shuns luxurious high fashion material for humble burlap.

Echo Bikini Bag

Cute Terry Cloth Purse for Wet Swimwear

Echo Bikini Bag | Cute Terry Cloth Purse for Wet Swimwear We love our bikini, until it gets wet. Then it's just plain inconvenient. But soaked swimwear need not be a concern thanks to this Bikini Bag from Echo. Ordinarily most of us loiter around the beach, waiting for our swimsuits to dry before we can pop on a cover-up or beach dress. But Echo knows the modern girl doesn't have time to waste. So it created this cute little bikini bag, which is b…

Coolibar Sedona Tote

Woven Natural Straw Beach Bag

Coolibar Sedona Tote | Woven Natural Straw Beach Bag Coolibar has always been a go-to brand for beach goers, but I think it's let its faithful down with this rather lackluster Sedona tote. I've never expected fashion forward style from Coolibar, but I always expect its accessories to do the job. Unless you travel light to the beach, this bag isn't going to cut it. You'll be lucky to fit a beach towel inside, let alone a pair of swimmers, ch…

Tommy Hilfiger Oversized Tote

Navy Cotton Canvas Flower Beach Bag

Tommy Hilfiger Oversized Tote | Navy Cotton Canvas Flower Beach Bag With its tropical design and sturdy canvas body, this oversized Tommy Hilfiger tote has just what you need for a day at the beach. The term oversized is an interesting one, as it implies that this tote is larger than is really needed. In truth though, I think this tote is the perfect size for carrying fluffy beach towels, flip flops, and other bulky items. As an everyday tote it'd weigh y…

Spiegel Sequined Summer Bag

Sparkly Blue Woven Beach Tote

Spiegel Sequined Summer Bag | Sparkly Blue Woven Beach Tote You'll sparkle on the sand carrying this fun Sequined Summer Bag from Spiegel! This simply shaped tote's woven finish is jazzed up with rows of tiny sequins. It could so easily have appeared gaudy, but Spiegel's shown great restraint here. Rather than cover the tote in sequins, they're used only as accents. The traditional tote shape also helps to temper the style. This sturdy tote…

Juicy Couture Coastal Tote

Large Pink Stripe Canvas Butterfly Beach Bag

Juicy Couture Coastal Tote | Large Pink Stripe Canvas Butterfly Beach Bag Juicy Couture has a reputation for flamboyant feminine looks, but in recent seasons the label has shown us a new sophisticated side. Bags like this Coastal Tote are still girly, but not too sugary for us to swallow. The natural canvas body is embellished with pretty pale pink and peach stripes. A black butterfly graphic is laid over the top for an extra dose of girlishness. Sequins ad…

Hello Kitty All Over Print Beach Bag

Clear Plastic Carryall with Canvas Handles

Hello Kitty All Over Print Beach Bag | Clear Plastic Carryall with Canvas Handles You don't have to be a tiny tot to appreciate this fun Hello Kitty beach tote. The cute Japanese cat is one of those characters that endures as the years pass. You probably loved her as a child, but there's no shame in carrying accessories featuring this fun feline once you're grown. This beach bag with its all over print is more subtle than a tote with a large Hello Kitty motif would be. Yo…

Olive N Figs Golden Palm Tote

Tan Cotton Beach Bag

Olive N Figs Golden Palm Tote | Tan Cotton Beach Bag Olive N Figs helps us tote our summer swag to the shore in style with this Golden Palm tote. Beach bags tend to feature loud rainbow colors, so I was pleasantly surprised to see Olive N Figs take a different approach. Its palm tree print is more tan than golden, so its name is a bit misleading, but I am thankful Olive N Figs didn't choose a glitzy metallic. I know some people will find the bro…

Olive N Figs Jute Beach Bag

Affordable Yellow & Green Embroidered Eco-Friendly Tote

Olive N Figs Jute Beach Bag | Affordable Yellow & Green Embroidered Eco-Friendly Tote Olive N Figs has always been a cheap and cheerful brand, but I don't recall them offering quite as much bag for our buck before. At a bargain basement price of $5.99, this large jute beach tote is a steal. Of course, you'll never get real luxury for that price. What you see is what you get. But this bag is well made, and its bold yellow-lime colors are ideal for a day at the beach. Don't expect…

Blue Q Beach Tote

Eco-Friendly Recycled Retro Bag

Blue Q Beach Tote | Eco-Friendly Recycled Retro Bag Blue Q takes us back to the swinging sixties with this retro beach bag. The colorful print on the bag conjures up this bygone era with its vintage images of women staring at seagulls and sunning themselves on the sand. This was before the days of holes in the ozone layer after all! While it's got a sense of nostalgia about it, the design of this Blue Q tote is entirely modern. While the plig…

Olive N Figs Beach Bag

Affordable Large Striped Cotton Turquoise Handbag

Olive N Figs Beach Bag | Affordable Large Striped Cotton Turquoise Handbag While the big designers often charge hundreds of dollars for the privilege of carrying one of their beach bags, Olive N Figs keeps it cheap and cheerful with this bright tote. This cute cotton bag is a real steal at just under $10. The use of cotton, rather than cheaper synthetic alternatives, makes the bag soft to the touch, yet tough enough to last several summers. Cute vertical stri…

Victoria’s Secret Pink Stripe Holiday Edition Tote

Colorful Striped Beach Bag

Victoria’s Secret Pink Stripe Holiday Edition Tote | Colorful Striped Beach Bag With bold pink and red stripes, Victoria's Secret makes a big impression with its Holiday Edition tote.

Its vivid colors are very summery; it's enough to inspire a Christmas vacation in Australia or Tahiti! Metallic gold lettering spells out the Victori…

Betsey Johnson Knotty Girl Hobo Handbag

Nautical Red Canvas Beach Bag

Betsey Johnson Knotty Girl Hobo Handbag | Nautical Red Canvas Beach Bag Betsey Johnson reins in her natural fashion flamboyance for this relatively sedate Knotty Girl hobo. Its fun nautical feel and generous dimensions make it a great option for toting your towel and togs to the beach. It might seem strange to describe any bright red bag as sedate, but when compared to the frothy fuchsia, sequined, and studded accessories the designer typically deliv…

Olive N Figs Crazy Circle Beach Set

Green Patterned Handbag, Hat, & Pareo Skirt

Olive N Figs Crazy Circle Beach Set | Green Patterned Handbag, Hat, & Pareo Skirt Olive N Figs packs a whole lot of value in this Crazy Circle beach set. However, given its name this set certainly won't appeal to every beachgoer. The name Crazy Circle is quite apt, because the vivid colored print with its abstract spots is pretty outrageous, whether you choose pink or lime green. I think the key though is not to pair all the items together as the mannequin does, but ap…

Coach Pierre Le-Tan Beach Tote

Umbrella Art Canvas Handbag

Coach Pierre Le-Tan Beach Tote | Umbrella Art Canvas Handbag For a beach bag with designer style, look to this umbrella tote from Coach. With its whimsical umbrella illustration by acclaimed French artist Pierre Le-Tan, this pretty tote looks perfect for summer. Its design starts promisingly as well, with Coach's traditional luxury fabrics passed over for a more practical water and stain resistant canvas. But Coach just can't help itsel…

Casual Ombre Pink & Orange Woven Straw Handbag

Victoria’s Secret Summer Beach Tote | Casual Ombre Pink & Orange Woven Straw Handbag Victoria's Secret is famous for its sexy lingerie and swimwear, but with this beach tote the brand shows its more practical side. This beach bag embraces summer with its casual straw body and vibrant ombre colors. A tote in pink and orange might not work on the city streets, but it's perfect for time spent on the sand. Perhaps Victoria's Secret should have offered us a few more color op…

Roxy Wild Side Tote

Pink Striped Cotton Canvas Beach Bag

Roxy Wild Side Tote | Pink Striped Cotton Canvas Beach Bag Carry your towel, glossy magazine, and other summer essentials to the beach in style with this Wild Side Tote from Roxy. I must say that its name seems like a bit of a misnomer though. There's very little about this tote that walks on the wild side; its wide horizontal stripes are decidedly laid back as is its soft, slouchy cotton canvas body. I don't think that's a flaw, as most of us want…

DKNY Beach Shopper Bag

Clear PVC Medium Handbag with Colored Trim

DKNY Beach Shopper Bag | Clear PVC Medium Handbag with Colored Trim DKNY might be based in America's East, but it seems to have a great understanding of what West Coast girls need. Here the label makes it easy to stay organized at the beach with this transparent shopper bag. The handbag's clear PVC body is jazzed up with bold red, yellow, or black trim and handles. The transparent body is more than simply eye-catching though. It makes it easy to find you…
