BP. Faux Leather Classic Tote
You can't go wrong with a classic black tote bag, and this faux leather option is on sale for 20 percent off. It's super roomy, has a removable pouch and a top-zip closure, and features a design so simple that you can bring it just about anywhere. Wrote one thrilled customer: "This is the BEST tote I have ever bought for work! 5 stars for this universal bag!"
If this bag isn't available, try the Mali + Lili Annie Vegan Leather Tote for $98. It offers a similar look, as well as more internal organization (complete with leopard-print lining), an exterior zip pocket, and four other color options besides black.
To buy: nordstrom.com, $40 (originally $49)
Clare V. Giant Nylon Tote
This'll add a splash to any outfit, but the eye-catching color isn't all it has going for it. The bag is huge, first of all, offering more than enough storage room, and the slouchy fit gives it a more unique look and feel than the typical tote. The fact that it's 40 percent off the original price right now is just icing on the cake.

Madewell The Foldover Transport Tote
Madewell's original signature tote is a classic for a reason, but this foldover version with a similar price shouldn't be overlooked. The smaller yet still spacious bag can be carried in three different ways: over the shoulder, crossbody, and, of course, as a tote. So depending on what your plans are that particular day (and how big you want your bag to be), you can adjust it as needed.

Other factors to consider besides color options are its cool slouchy look, removable zip pouch, and thin but still supportive straps—not to mention its price tag of just $54. Basically, it's the on-the-go bag you can take anywhere.
