The Joy Of The Tote

From work to play, discover our favourite carry-it-all styles

If there’s one bag that will never go out of fashion, it’s the hard-working, fit-your-life-in-it tote bag. Every person needs one in their style repertoire and especially now that hybrid working sees us commuting to the office once more.

Let’s be honest, totes used to be seen as a bit naff and therefore not given much consideration in the style stakes. Not anymore. They’ve really upped their game and there are choices aplenty, depending what your carry-all needs are. Perhaps you’re looking for something sleek, leather and office appropriate? Or you’re on the look out for a shopper that’s practical enough for Saturday morning errands but looks cool when you show up for brunch? Practical yes, but with all the personality you’d expect from a Lulu.

Whatever your specifics, forget trying to cram everything you need into a slimline shoulder bag and embrace the wonders of XXL sizing instead. Here’s a rundown on some of our favourites.

Indulgent Ivy

Count the ways we love Ivy. She’s practical, spacious, comes with an extra pouch to organise your small-and-importants and is perfect for the office (as well as wherever you have reservations after work). Crafted from the softest leather, with a chic minimal shape and a range of colours to choose from, including our new Lips and Pearls design, what’s not to love?


Lip Lover Lyra

Lip-quilted Lyra is our new large yet lightweight luxury tote with fun acrylic handles, available in Peony, Blue and Black. She’s soft and squidgy which means she’s comfortable for carrying as you dash around town. Plus the shoulder straps will help with that too!

Jean Genie

Jean totes are infinitely cool and perfect for casual occasions or when you need an extra bag (hello gym kit/groceries shopping). Why not invest in one you love rather than reluctantly reach for as you sprint out the door? Step forward our High Tea Jean Tote, adorned with everyone’s favourite sweet treat and two strap options for easy carrying.


Brilliant Bibi

Witty and fun, Bibi is the cool girl’s tote, loved by Bella Hadid and Alexa Chung, amongst others. Inspired by designs from the Lulu archive, Bibi encapsulates quintessential British charm. Crafted from soft and textured bouclé with retro black acrylic handles and a jaunty striped interior, choose from a range of classic pub games - from bingo to darts - for her design.



Perfectly Portable Shopper


Practical but also playful, our pearly lip printed shopper bag folds away neatly into Lulu's signature Red Lips. Throw into your handbag for when you know you’ll need extra carrying space or grab as a signature clutch!
