15 Chic Totes That are Perfect For Travel

The biggest key to traveling like a pro is a trusted tote bag! With all the procedures and restrictions you have to deal with at the airport, traveling can feel more like a stressful, anxiety-inducing experience rather than an adventure. While you’re trying to make it your gate on time and battling through the security line, the last thing you want to worry about is your stuff — a big spacious, tote can do all the work for you.

Whether you’re gearing away for a short trip or a long haul journey, a tote bag makes the perfect personal carry-on bag. You can easily access your pre-flight and in-flight essentials such as your boarding pass, cell phone, laptop, and small toiletries. Compared to other bags, totes are easy to maneuver and quite functional. There’s no need to fuss with extraneous zippers and little compartments since totes usually have one main, cavernous compartment. As PurseBop has demonstrated with her nesting bag technique, you can even store smaller handbags in your carry-it-all totes.
