I’ve rounded up the best Summer tote bags for all tastes and budgets, including designer beach bags, monogrammed beach bags, canvas, straw, woven and leather tote bags. I tried to include beach tote bags that were both appropriate for everyday and also ones for the beach that aren’t as expensive or obviously logoed.

Are beach bags in style 2023

Summer tote bags aren’t something that ever go out of style and always get so much use. However, it’s straw, wicker and canvas beach totes that are the most in style for 2023. Just be careful with straw and wicker beach bags around fragile fabrics like satin and silk so that you don’t pull your clothes or swimwear.

That’s why I tend to end up with canvas iterations like my Dior canvas book tote or Chanel Deauville tote bag more often than not.

Are monogrammed beach bags in style?

Yes, as they’re another classic. Monogrammed bags are more of a personal preference than being in or out of fashion. If you’re planning on reselling your bag later down the line though, it’ll make it more difficult if it’s monogrammed. On the plus side, it’s less desirable to thieves.

How to care for your beach tote

One tip I learned this year was that it doesn’t matter how big the bag, still don’t overload them. As this can stretch the bag and the handles and they won’t last as long.

The Best Beach Totes & Summer Tote Bags for 2023

These diverse summer totes and beach totes range from simple to statement, designer tote bags to luxe for less. I found a super cute woven tote for $26 all the way up to the 3 most coveted designer tote bags of the year.

  1. Chanel Deauville tote bag is probably the most classic and coveted designer beach bag. Full Deauville review. I like that it has a couple of interior pockets, an interior zipper pocket for smaller items like credit cards and is big enough for a beach towel.
  2. Versace cream logo canvas beach tote is one of my top picks for designer beach bags for 2023. It’s bold gold Medusa head makes it instantly and iconically Versace but the name is embossed rather than being a contrasting color print or stitching. Since this bag can be used for both the beach and the street, it’s perfect for when you’re packing for vacation and trying to pack less.
  3. Fendi Sunshine Shopper. This designer beach tote is stylish enough for everyday not just vacation. Cream version in stock.
  4. Saint Laurent Rive Gauche a best seller for the last couple of years.

Woven straw summer totes are the perfect warm-weather accessory and a summer essential.

Shop the best designer beach bags & luxe for less styles

The best beach totes and summer tote bags for 2023 from designer beach bags to luxe for less. Whether it’s a wicker beach bag or canvas tote bag you’re looking for, these are the most stylish and functional bags for Summer that ship to both the US, the UK and worldwide.

  1. Versace: The La Medusa collection is colorful, chic and covered in this designers logos. The Versace denim designer beach bag is perfect for vacations, poolside or an everyday bag for all seasons giving it great CPW.
  2. Mark & Graham large Palm Leaf Tote $89. If you’re looking for a monogrammed beach bag this tote bag is one of their best sellers and I can see why. This roomy summer tote bag has a soft linen lining and an interior pocket for your room key and anything else you want to find easily.

    Mark & Graham is a new discovery for me. I ended up picking 4 from this online store as I couldn’t narrow down their stylish monogrammed tote bags anymore than that. I’m not normally a monogram girl but these beauties caught my eye.
  3. Bamboo Elisabetta Raffia Tote Bag $398. This is one of their more expensive totes as its handcrafted in Florence from Italian raffia with polished bamboo handles. There’s also an internal zippered section that divides the bag into three compartments. This would make a great gift for destination wedding bridesmaids.
  4. Ribbon Straw Monogrammed Beach Tote $79 from Mark & Graham’s new collection.
  5. Palermo Straw Beach Tote. Another straw tote from Mark & Graham and it’s on sale for $99. You can order any of Mark & Graham’s totes without monogramming if you don’t like monogrammed beach bags.
  6. Saint Laurent YSL Cabas clear PVC beach tote makes finding everything easy. This simple but classic tote will stay in style from year to year and has a triple snap closure. The beauty of this one is that it’s large enough to work as both your carryon and beach tote.
  7. Large Woody Logo Strap Canvas Tote CHLOÉ. Keep an eye on the Nordstrom sale post, if this goes in their anniversary sale (I doubt it will) I’ll be sure to add it there. It also comes in all white if you prefer a monochromatic chic white look.
  8. Summer Simple Tote Tan w/ Ciao would be so cute for an Italian escape and is under $50.
  9. Medium Fendi Sunshine tote bag $2,950. You’ve seen this designer beach bag all over instagram, it was the IT bag last year and I definitely see it sticking around for 2023. It’s definitely more of a splurge and investment piece but it’s such a classic style and more of an everyday bag, not just a beach bag it’d get so much use. This tote also comes in red, khaki and black.

    I’m coveting this and the Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Tote, both are equally beautiful. The Fendi is more luxe in leather, with it’s debossed logo, tortoiseshell effect handles and gold-tone hardware. It also has an adjustable detachable shoulder strap. Whereas the Saint Laurent is more laid back, casual.
  10. For the girly girls. Be Mine Straw Tote has the most adorable black hearts embroidered on it. If you want a pop of color, it also comes in natural with fuchsia embroidered hearts.
  11. Valentino Garavani Medium Raffia Summer Tote With Toile Iconographe Embroidery Roma Stud is one of the more elegant designer tote bags. It’s a classic and understated style that still features their iconic gold V hardware and studs. It goes perfectly with their Roman Stud sandals if you like a coordinated look.
  12. Dior Book Tote is a classic designer beach tote and everyday tote bag. It comes in different sizes, prints and colors including black for a chic look. It can also be personalized.
  13. CHLOÉ Marcie tan or cream leather-trimmed raffia tote $750. It’s one of the few designer beach bags that hasn’t had a rate hike this year. It also comes with a few different color leather accents. If you love this one get it now as there’s a low stock warning on it. This bag would coordinate really well with Chloe’s wooden slides you probably already have from last year.

“Chloé celebrates the ten-year anniversary of its best-selling ‘Marcie’ tote with this new iteration that’s great for summer.” Woven in Spain from raffia with Chloe’s signature leather flap.

  1. Saint Laurent Rive Gauche straw shopping tote bag is a more beachy style to the Saint Laurent Rive Gauche designer beach bag that’s been taking the spotlight for the last few years. This fresh and beachy, neutral designer tote bag also comes in canvas if you prefer a more versatile Summer tote bag that works both on and off of the beach.
  2. If you prefer oversized totes this women’s Large Straw Bags Beach Tote Bag is a great budget find. This handwoven hobo bag is the most affordable Summer beach bag at $26.99. I love the red, white and blue scarf detailing on this bag, it’d be great for completing a July 4th outfit. It’s made of 100% natural hand-woven seagrass with hand-woven knit elements and craftsmanship.
  3. Loubishore Louboutin Logo Straw Tote $590. Another beautiful leather trimmed classic. This versatile designer tote has a timeless silhouette and is crafted from woven raffia. It’d look just as good at long Summer lunches as it does poolside or on the beach.
  4. Poolside Essaouira straw tote. This is the perfect size summer tote bag and doubles up as your personal item to carry on the plane as it zips shut. I always look for bags with top zips as there’s less chance of something falling out and it also helps prevent pick pocketing. This style has a removable lining that snaps in and out to make

18. Marc Jacobs The Tote bag is one of the more affordable designer tote bags and comes in a few color options for Summer 2023. It also has a top zipper closure to make it perfect as a carry on bag and to keep sand out on the beach.

19. Sensi studio might not be a designer beach bag but it’s a classic neutral color, unusual shape and ever so beachy.

20. Jacquemus is still a trending designer brand and their Beige & Brown Le Raphia ‘Le Panier Soli’ beach tote is a super popular style. This brand doesn’t specialize in beach bags but mini bags but this one is too cute to miss. It’s also a classic style that’s less likely to date than some others.

I also bought a bag organizer for it to hold it’s shape and to protect it a little in case of any spills or suntan lotion leaks.
