Best Bets: Tote-ally


There are few things that scream summer more than a straw tote. Well, that and, of course, torrential rains. But don't let the downpours dictate your fashion decisions; make a point of adding this Raffia Tote Bag from Calypso to your collection. This one offers a few upgrades to the classic carryall: For starters it has a snap closure to keep your gear from tumbling out, and for finishers it has either white or natural-leather handles to give it a life beyond the beach. So at least when sunny days arrive, you'll be armed and ready.
