What are you carrying your stuff in this fall? If you’re over the idea of having an expensive purse or backpack, we’re right behind you. Winter may call for heavier packaging, but before the snow hits the ground you’re fully entitled to pack your essentials in a cute, simple canvas tote. Need some guidance on looking stylish with this minimalist carry-on? We’ve rounded up some of our favorite street styles from the web featuring denim and tote bags so you can start wearing this look today.
Jerome wears a pair of light wash denim jeans with his leather jacket and matching loafers, finishing off the outfit with a black brimmed hat and fashion-forward tote. We love it!
Jordan goes super preppy with lace-up white converse, dark shorts, and a light wash denim workshirt. His Beyond Retrotote is the key piece in his look, and it holds a lot of weight. No pun intended.
Sue Lyn pairs a butter yellow knit top with a tiered-hem purple skirt. She’s not wearing denim in this shot, but adding a denim vest or swapping out the woven skirt for a jean variation makes for a super-cute summer/fall look.
British blogger Emily wears her tote (which she scored for free at a market) with a slouchy knit top and dark wash denim cut-off shorts, cuffed up. This look screams playful!
Jenny‘s kick-ass shoes and cuffed skinny jeans are awesome for fall. She wears a leather jacket and dark hat, and carries her Kasil Workshop denim tote with a colorful scarf tied to one handle.
Bobby‘s beachy shirt and DIY cut-off jean shorts are a perfect match. His accessories take the look a step further. He added a braided brown leather belt, beanie hat, and tote bag to the mix.
