Best Bet: Gap’s Suede Tote


Between the sea of drab, neutral-colored coats and fall’s minimalist silhouettes, there’s a need for accessories that are a little fun this season. Enter Gap’s boldly colored tote (but not blindingly so) to liven up day-to-day looks. The suede material and contrasting brown handle make this piece look luxe, while its shape treads the line between slouchy and structured. This bag can hold all the daily essentials and then some, making it convenient for work and weekend.
