Large Tote
"I’m not a fan of getting in the water at the beach, so I always end up bringing at least three activities with me: a romance book, a crossword puzzle, and most importantly, a speaker to listen to Harry Styles. This large tote holds all of those and more.” — Meguire Hennes, lifestyle intern, BDG
See On Coach
“I love the colorful, vintage vibe of this beach bag. It’s a bit of a departure from the typical straw varieties. Also, it’s not oversized, which I appreciate, since I tend to keep it simple at the beach: towel, book, water bottle, sunscreen, and sunnies.” — Angela Melero, executive editor
