Best Bet: Chambray Dreams


We love the look of chambray this season, from those ubiquitous slouchy button-downs to casual blazers. This roomy chambray tote makes a great throw-around bag for spring. You can load it up with clothes for a weekend trip or pile in necessities for a day of lounging in the park or at the beach. The sturdy, topstitched straps are long enough for comfortable shoulder-schlepping, and the flat bottom keeps it from tipping over into the sand. Plus, it’s on sale for just $25 (originally $34.50), leaving you with a little extra spending money for more additions to your spring wardrobe.

Colorblock canvas tote, $25 at Gap or online.
