Most girls I know carry their lives around with them every day and need a bag that reflects that (we’ve all got a bit of Mary Poppins in us, after all). In fact, I’m totally envious of anyone who can pop a credit card and some keys in a little clutch and call it a day. I don’t know about you, but a day at the beach only stands to multiply what I need to carry with me by exponential factors, and I’m constantly on the hunt for a beach bag that holds everything but also looks chic (and not overwhelming).
In time for Memorial Day, we’ve rounded up our favorite beach bags below. Flip through and find one that will hold everything from your book to your sunscreen to your towel—and more! And don’t stop carrying them once you’re miles from the sand; our favorite totes are still perfect for your life beyond the water’s edge.
