Oversized totes never had the best of reputations. They compete for space during an already-packed commute, require their own seat at the dinner table, and – we say this literally, are an extra weight on the shoulders. Not to mention how, when it comes time to find an item of importance, they can mysteriously convert into a black hole where all wallets and keys go to vanish. What’s left to thrive are age-old faded receipts and “in case of emergency” paper napkins you once thought were sensible to keep. It’s no wonder micro bags gained overwhelming favour amongst the fashion crowd; they’re compact, chic and limit you to mere essentials.
However, some may argue that oversized tote bags are still essential for their daily activities. They come in handy when you need to lug around things for work or even for that much-needed weekend staycation you’ve got planned with your beau.
